Our Lucky Dog Ambassadors are a constant inspiration to our entire rescue, and we are especially grateful for the donations made by the Colonial Forge EMT Program, in honor of Chelsea Favreau who was killed in a car crash in January. Her sister, Bailey, is a former student of the EMT program and the family generously asked for donations to animal shelters and rescue organizations in lieu of flowers.
