IN THE SPOTLIGHT!
Eleven-year-old Bebe has made it her business to entertain her foster mom since arriving in her foster home several weeks ago. She weighs in at 14.3 pounds, most of that personality and charm! She took a little while to adjust when she first came to rescue, as she was confused after her owner died. Once she settled in, however, Bebe made herself at home.

I am happy to announce that Havanese Rescue Inc has received a special grant from the AKC. The AKC Humane Fund has awarded HRI $1,000 for each of the next three years ($3,000 total). This has been rewarded due to our demonstrating an outstanding commitment to dogs and responsible ownership.
Do you know that last year alone, HRI spent over $51,000 in dogexpenses helping over 90 dogs? I know we are constantly asking for donations, but believe me when I say that we need every penny to support the rescue dogs. In recent months, we have seen an increase in older dogs coming into HRi, with many hidden expenses needed to stabilize the dogs.
I want to thank Havanese Club of America for supporting us as our parent club and endorsing us in order to apply for this grant. A special thanks goes out to Mary Richling for compiling the data necessary, and completing the application for the grant. Also, many thanks to Lori Brostrom and Sally Cotumaccio for helping with all of the stats and financial numbers necessary for the application.
Thank you all!
