Levi's eye surgery went well and we couldn't have done it without the amount of support we received from everyone near and far. We were overwhelmed and humbled by the turn out. Thank you, thank you thank you. You can read about the whole story on his blog here.
We are so fortunate that our supporters help and donate many items to help relieve the stress on our budget. Recently, one company, Chicago-based digital agency Critical Mass, was challenged to make a difference. They had a set budget, and only about 2 hours to help. The entire company was divided up with about 9 people on a team. New Leash on Life was chosen by one of the groups to be the benefactor of what they were able to donate.
They contacted NLOL and asked what we really needed. At that time we were nearly out of big dog beds! Those are vital because we try to place every dog in a foster home with everything they'll need, which includes dog beds. The team at CM took up a collection and bought 9 huge dog beds for our pooches.
Mr. Cooper came into our family at New Leash on Life. He was originally a shy little mutt and was on the skinny and rough side. He quickly opened up and showed us his personality in his "wookie" barks, and soon he was a favorite of everyone that met him.

talking about Murphy that we were going to be welcoming a new family
member into our home. When the alarm sounded for a person in the river,
everyone was on high alert. Once on the scene, that person turned out to
be Murphy fighting to stay afloat. Murphy's initially shy and uneasy
demeanor only made us want to give him the stability and love that he
needed. Day by day Murphy's timidness has disappeared and his true
fun-loving personality is beginning to come through. Helen and I are
thrilled that we were able to adopt such a fantastic dog, and the kindness
and support we received from Megan at New Leash on Life really made the
whole process feel right. We love Murphy and we're excited to have him as
a part of our family!"
New Leash on Life has been undergoing a lot of changes recently. Changes in reworking administrative roles, to adding 7 new adoption counselors into the mix of training and taking roles, plus the dogs. It seems fitting that new seasons bring change and we are excited to announce our new team. With the extra help we are able to focus more on the dogs and the people that make this organization possible. We cannot begin to thank you for your donation of time, money, and continued support.
