St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
www.stjude.org
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital opened its doors on February 4, 1962, based on Danny Thomas' dream that "no child should die in the dawn of life." Since then, they have made incredible strides in childhood cancer research. We've helped improve the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% to 80%. And ALL, the disease with a virtual death sentence in 1962, now has a survival rate of 94 percent.

Today, St. Jude's a world leader in developing new, improved treatments for children with cancer, and we create more clinical trials for cancer than any other children's hospital. We freely share those breakthroughs, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

And still today as when we opened our doors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all they should worry about is helping their child live.

Companion Pet Rescue
www.cprdogs.com

CPR is a 501(c)(3) non-pro?t organization, registered with the States of Tennessee and Connecticut. We've been in operation since 2004, proudly rescuing 2,000+ dogs and pups each and every year. Our rescue is financially operated through our adoption fees, donations and fundraisers. Because of the extensive vet care we provide, running our rescue is very expensive. All of our dogs are payed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, tested for heartworms (if over 6 months of age) and if positive for heartworms, they are treated before leaving our care. While we don't receive any government funding, we are required to comply with very strict standards set by the states of TN, CT, MA and the USDA.

CPR's mission is rescuing & rehoming abandoned and neglected dogs. In addition to rescuing & rehoming dogs, we promote our own spay/neuter outreach program that allows us to assist families that need this service but can't afford it.

Companion Pet Rescue's name was chosen very deliberately - we focus our efforts on friendly, social, loving companion pets. We rarely assist in placing dogs with special needs or aggression - we simply are not equipped to rescue these dogs, as our dogs are heavily socialized with others (a doggy daycare environment), or in foster homes, almost all of which have children and other pets.

In the United States, opioid deaths have reached epic proportions. In the past 2 years, over 50,000 people have passed away EACH year due to overdoses. Unfortunately, my son was included. When Michael graduated high school, he was voted most athletic, most school spirited and most popular. The disease of addiction does not discriminate! We do not want any other family to have to suffer such an agonizing loss and add to this statistic.

Midwest Greyhound Adoption
www.midwestgreyhound.org
Midwest Greyhound Adoption (MGA) is a non-profit organization run totally by volunteers. MGA, started in January 1991, takes dogs from tracks mostly in Florida, but also from Iowa and Alabama, as well as dogs with broken leg. Pups are taken to vets as soon as possible to get the broken leg(s) repaired, and then sent to the MGA kennel to recuperate. This can be a major expense, depending on the break. We had 2 dogs come in recently that had broken legs and did not get to us for 2 months as another group was scheduled to take them and decided not to, so we had to have their legs re-broken and set. This is traumatic for the dogs and an added expense to us. Once the dogs are able to use the leg(s), they are moved into foster homes and then their forever home is sought.
