The DSR My Way Home Program is an “umbrella program” that works with the rescue organizations. It takes dogs that are homeless; helps improve manners through training and socialization, and provide the tools to be a healthy canine citizen. These dogs earned the "Golden Ticket" and will leave us with a park membership and a training class. We never want any of our dogs to find their way back to the shelters. With your support, Dog Star Ranch can find the way home for many dogs to come. Proceeds from Bark Fest 2010 go to support the DSR My Way Home Program.

Special Thank You ;)

DSR would like to thank the Muskegon KOA Campground owners, Debbie and Steve, for allowing our Advance Class members come and visit the campground and campers. Our Advanced Class members are continuing to work with different destractions, new people, and new dogs as they are all hoping to go through the testing to be therapy dogs in the next couple weeks and the more new sights and surroundings they can get use to, the better. So thank you to the KOA for allowing us to visit tonight!

A day for prayers...

Today was a wonderful day for the daycare dogs! We had 28 today and lots of boarding dogs to join in the fun. It was a little on the crazy/busy side today so the camera was forgotten. No photos, sorry.
*
I do want to take a minute to send out some prayers and happy thoughts... Two of our very special clients are having a rough day... Gracie's dad and Aggie's mom are having some health complications and requesting a "bark of a prayer" from the dog world. Please take a moment today and send them some prayers and happy thoughts.
Please take a moment and support DSR's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk to help others who are also struggling. Visit our team page @ http://main.acsevents.org/site/TR/MakingStridesAgainstBreastCancer/MSABCFY11GreatLakes?pg=team&fr_id=28060&team_id=758408
