Canine Lifeline's Mutt Madness 5k Timed Run / 1 Mile Fun Walk
Sunday, June 3, 2018
Canine Lifeline is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in September of 2009. Our mission is to save adoptable dogs from being euthanized for space or treatable medical conditions.
Our dogs come from dog pounds here in Ohio as well as from Kentucky. Most of these pounds are in very rural areas and just do not have the means to care for all of the dogs they take in. Once in our care, we get them vetted and provide a foster home for them until a permanent home can be found.
All of the dogs that come to Canine Lifeline are very dear to us but we have a special fondness for those we affectionately call our “mended mutts”. These are dogs who come to us with medical issues that make their chances of adoption at a shelter or dog pound very slim. While their medical needs may differ: some have heartworms, others need surgery to repair broken bones or dislocated hips, while still others have painful skin conditions…they all share a spirit and will to live that make it a joy and privilege to help them. To see the sparkle in their eyes and spring in their step when they are on the mend is priceless! We can’t help them though without support from caring people like you. Events like this one help us continue to save these special medical cases.
