Dear Jon,

Are you beginning to look forward to 2019 yet? Our good friends at the Discovering Doris fan website are ready. They have once again produced a very special calendar to benefit the Doris Day Animal Foundation. The calendar is printed in Great Britain on a strictly limited print run. They always sell out fast, so be sure to order now, exclusively from Discovering Doris!

Stephen, founder of Discovering Doris explains, "This is our 12th edition, featuring some rare photos and other adorable images of Doris with her four-legged friends from the Peter C. Borsari Photo Archive. Thanks to your support, our little fund-raising project has raised over $40,000 in donations for the Doris Day Animal Foundation."

The calendar's images were professionally scanned from original photographic prints, transparencies or negatives. Printing was done by the family-run printing firm, White Hart Press of Bedford, England.

Leo's Story

In 2014, LBWF stepped in to help a fellow rescue, as it closed its doors.  Leo was one of the 9 lucky dogs LBWF took on as our own. He had developed allergies from his past life - his beautiful fawn colored fur was in rough shape and it took months to soothe and heal. He benefited from a grain free diet, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and the product, Nzymes. After a year of struggling with his skin issues, we found this to be the magic cure for him, and so many rescued dogs we have here at LBWF that suffer from skin issues due to our dry weather.

Leo was adopted as a cute, fat puppy. He was well loved until his owner left for college! Story sound all too familiar nowadays? Unfortunately the student's parents didn't want the responsibility of this now, very large dog, so they gave Leo away. He mysteriously was found in a field and taken in by a loving family who had taken to caring for all dogs dumped in that particular field. The economy crashed, leaving this kindhearted family with no money to feed the family and pets. Leo, now severely underweight, found a safe haven with a loving rescue. 

Two years ago, they too fell on hard times and had to close their doors. This is becoming all too common in rescue, as the weight of the expenses of caring for all these left behind pets become unbearable.

LBWF stepped in to help Leo and 9 of his canine friends and 10 cats!  We discovered Leo loved to pass the time playing with his ropes and toys, hoping you might notice his joy, and watch him as he shook it side to side and bounced his hippo body around! He was a great walking companion, but still he scared everyone, with his large hippo body! 

We are so excited to announce that this gentle giant has FINALLY found his own forever, loving home! He deserves it. They all do.

Your support & donations to the LBWF rescued dogs allowed Leo, and all the 100 rescued dogs of LBWF, to live and thrive! Now it is his adoption day, April 2016! He has a 3 month old, TINY little Chihuahua sister named Miss Kitty, whom he loves to give kisses too!! We love you Leo! Thank you Grace, Sam and Miss Kitty for bringing Leo into your loving home and giving him the love he as begged for all these years.

Leo is a dog that proves what makes this work so incredible - never give up on them and their loyalty and ability to believe in humans, no matter how many times humans let them down!

Welcome to the world of rescue, we do it for the magical, magnificent friends, called animals. It is us humans, which are lucky to have them in our lives! I call them angels on earth, and feel privileged to serve them in their time of need! We must change laws to better protect them! We must continue to work towards mandatory spay/neuter, harsher penalties for animal cruelty, the end of backyard chaining, breed ban discrimination, and better quality of life for our fur friends.

Your donations go directly to the care of our rescued animals in need. We don't have the overheard the big groups have. We are 100% volunteer run which ensures your funds provide direct medical care, shelter, bedding, toys, grooming, cookies, etc to the 100 rescued dogs at the LBWF Wellness Center.


Your donations also assist us in educating the public on the aforementioned animal welfare topics and ensure we can continue fighting for Leo and all his fur friends we love so dearly.

Thank you for joining the LBWF Family and helping on this journey!

With great love and gratitude,

Linda
