Please, please, please read...

"You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give."

I so believe this, and feel so blessed to have the things that I do, and my wonderful dogs. Sadly all Havs are not as lucky as mine, or yours.

I am starting on a new venture and hope I will get some help from you all.
I have just taken the position as East Coast Supply person for HRI.
I will be collecting donations of belly bands, bitches britches, leads(6'), harness collars, crate blankets, beds, crates, xpens, toys - anything that might help out the foster families and new adoptive families of Havanese rescues. When a pup is sent to foster or adoptive home, and they are in need of something, I send it to them.

But.. right now, my shelves are empty!! My playdate will hopefully bring in some leads and belly bands, but we need so much more!! If anyone has the desire to donate any items for the Havanese Rescues, please pm me or email me at lfrangione1 at comcast.net and I will be happy to talk to you about where to send me your donations.

Thank you all!!

I see no reason why not. What we would most likely do is hold the $ until we are out of certain items, and then purchase them if we need to. I know that they just ordered a ton of ID tags for the rescues, so the $ could go towards something like that. Thank you!

As a state contact for HRI I would suggest if you want to do this to make a check out the HRI so it is tax deductible and trackable as well. Ask if the money you donate can only be used for items needed if that is what you would like it to be used for. Please know however, that HRI needs all donations no matter how big or small and the money is used to HELP all the dogs.

You guys are the best!! I am checking on the slightly used items, I personally see no problem with it, but am not sure if HRI has a rule about it, so I will let you know as soon as I get an email back.

I also wanted to mention, that they are in desperate need of people who have access to material and can sew!! Belly bands are in high demand, since a lot of the rescues are males who are given up due to housebreaking issues. I have samples of simple belly bands that can be made so if anyone has the desire, just let me know!!
