Ramblings From The Ranch
During difficult times organizations throughout the world suffer greatly as they continue trying to raise operating money without the ability to create events or do personal outreach. As many Lakeside residents know The Ranch has held some spectacular gatherings in the past that were fun, different and raised a significant amount of money. From the evening lake cruise to the intimate backyard concerts, the giant yard sale to the cowboy hoedown, but now, like many, we are unable to tout our accomplishments in person. The fundraisers have come to a halt, but the services The Ranch provides for abandoned and abused dogs has increased for over 100 dogs at any given time. Furthermore, The Ranch continues its program of sending dogs to the U.S. where they are quickly adopted.
Fortunately, The Ranch has come up with new and exciting ways to continue our community involvement and rely on our many dog-loving donors to participate in our fundraising efforts. The Ranch is now offering our Sponsor a Dog program. For only $30 USD, $600 MX or $36 Canadian Dollars you can be a monthly sponsor.
The really fun part is that you can pick out your very own dog! And for another mere 100 pesos, you can name the dog of your choice. Perhaps after a beloved pet, fondly remembered loved one or a birthday surprise for a friend. Your sponsorship helps pay for your dog’s food and any medical care to keep them happy and healthy as they await their forever home. Simply go to The Ranch website at theranchchapala.com, click on the button at the top and scroll down to Sponsor a Dog to seek out your favorite perro – or maybe pick out two!
Of course, adopting or fostering our dogs is encouraged as well. There is certainly no shortage of dogs waiting to be placed in a loving home. However, if you are unable to take a dog into your household this is a wonderful way to support the ongoing work at The Ranch. The staff thanks you in advance and the dogs wag their tails in appreciation.
