A New Organization for Pets in Need: The Wayward Dog Foundation

It was only a matter of time before we made it official.

Over the past few months, I have been working closely with my friend Chris Sailors, owner of Kennel Creek Pet Resort, to find new families for several dogs.

Some of the dogs, like Razzy the dachshund and Buckshot the min pin, came from shelters.

Some, like Bentley the Australian shepherd and Princess the Chihuahua, came from homes in which they could no longer stay for family health or financial reasons

In addition to working directly with some dogs, we have also networked (with your help!) other animals on behalf of individuals and other rescue organizations.

At some point, Chris and I decided we were spending so much time figuring out which dogs we could help, how to help them and how to promote the efforts of others in animal rescue that our project ought to have its own name!

That’s how the Wayward Dog Foundation was born.

The Wayward Dog Foundation is a non-profit organization based in the state of Kansas. It exists to connect pets and people through adoption and to support the efforts of other animal welfare organizations.

In order for our Foundation to be a success, we will also need help from people in the Kansas City community and beyond.

I have consistently been amazed at the encouragement and support my blog readers have demonstrated for any project on which I have embarked. I hope that you will find this endeavor worthy of the same.

Right now, I just ask you to help me spread the word about the Wayward Dog Foundation and also share the stories of the people and pets we seek to help, as I share them with you.

Our website is not finished just yet, but you can like Wayward Dog Foundation on Facebook!

If you are located in the Kansas City area, you are also invited to attend the Foundation’s very first event.
