Broccoli helps her new family through loss
Broccoli was adopted back on 11/6/11 with Janet and her father who lived with her. Just a few short days after his adoption, Janet's father passed away somewhat unexpectedly. Broccoli was a tremendous support to her while she has been coping with the loss of her dad and their family asked for donations to BDHPI in liew of flowers or any gifts at the funeral. This weekend, they showed up at one of our events in Nebraska and presented our local volunteers with a check for $400. We are overwhelmed with their generosity and so happy that Broccoli is showing them what a gentle giant is all about and assisting with the healing process!
Here is a note from Janet:
We had such a great time and look forward to coming to more events and getting involved. My Dad would be so pleased that the money will be used to help one of the gentle giants have a better life. He so loved Brocolli and the mission of your rescue. Thank you so much for all your help in making this wonderful gift happen!
