Heyward, named for Chicago Cubs player Jason Heyward who suffered a long season of disappointments, but in the end persevered and rallied his teammates to a win in the final game of the World Series. Our little Heyward is very ill, he is currently on IV's at the AWL awaiting his transport tomorrow to our vet hospital. We have partnered with Dogs Are Deserving Rescue on Heyward behalf. Why do this? Simple. While we work with Heyward on his medical treatments, training, socialization and preparing him for his foster home. Dogs Are Deserving Rescue concentrate on finding the perfect fit for a foster and then adopter for when he is ready to leave the hospital. K9 Enrichment Initiative, Inc. isn't a rescue with the outreach of fosters and potential adopters. BUT, we do a pretty damn good job of nurturing and preparing a dog for the next step after being abused, neglected and in dire need of medical care. We work with Springbrook Animal Care Center's staff to ensure our dogs are getting the best medical care, as well as enjoying time to play, socialize and work on basic commands. Their in house trainer advises us of any issues the dog might be having that we don't witness in our time with them. We are grateful for the partnership their staff has extended us in providing for the dogs. If you are interested in Heyward p lease fill out an application at:
