Help a Dale in Need

This is a heartbreaking story.

In Oklahoma, a man surrendered 3 Airedales to rescue (I'm going to give him a teensy tiny bit of credit for at least surrendering and not dumping them into a shelter).  The two lovely females are both heavily pregnant, and the male is the daddy.  It appears that these dogs have been used as puppy-making machines based on the history of the man.  The three dogs have lived their lives in a filthy outdoor kennel and have had litter after litter of puppies. They have no social skills and are petrified right now.

This lovely girl-Dale-mama is Pearl:


Pearl is 7, and she is also Lily's mama.  Isn't she gorgeous?  She's just about to have her fine Dale babies.  No puppies for Pearl yet, but she is heartworm negative (yes!), both ears are infected, she has whipworms, and is in need of a dental.

And this pretty girl-Dale-mama is Lily:


Lily is 5, and is one of Pearl's babies.  She is due to have her pups at the end of February.
This is Crockett, super-Dale-dad.


Poor guy, must be scared out of his mind.  And then a bath?  Geez...  Crockett is a beautiful boy, and the father of both girl-Dales litters.

Got some cash?  They sure could use it right now.  We could only spare a little, but every little bit adds up.

Here is a direct Paypal link to help out these sweet Dales:  For Pearl, Lily, Crockett and their Pups

Got no cash?  You can still help! We are leading an effort to win The Animal Rescue Site's Challenge (along with petfinder.com) to get badly-needed funds to help out these sweet (and many other) Dales.


Each link will take you to The Animal Rescue Site.  Search for Oklahoma Airedale Terrier Rescue.  They are located in Oklahoma City, OK.

DO IT TODAY.  DO IT DAILY.  DO IT FROM EVERY COMPUTER YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON. We have no connection with the OK Airedales rescue group (we live in Philadelphia, after all), but we have been really touched by this story, and we're always happy to help out some Dales in need.

Thanks for the info. We'll go to the sites after we leave here. We get very upset when we read about stuff like this. We are hoping that Crockett isn't Lily's father too.
Smooches from pooches,
