Hale Pet Door & BDHPI

Tis the Season of Giving at Hale Pet Door:Rescue Rewards Donations Doubled thru Jan. 3

Santa Paws is paying a visit to Hale Pet Door and has a special gift for rescues and shelters all over the country. Through our Hale Pet Door Rescue Rewards program, customers who have ever adopted a pet will continue to receive a discount of 10 percent off the retail cost of the pet door. They just need to let us know that they adopted a pet when ordering over the phone or on our online order form.

For any doors purchased before January 3, 2012, Hale Pet Door will DOUBLE our normal donation to your rescue group or shelter. Instead of our normal process of matching the 10 percent discount and making a donation for that same amount, we’ll make a donation in the amount of 20 percent of the retail cost of the pet door!

Our Rescue Rewards program is a priority to all of us at Hale Pet Door. It is our way as a company to help homeless pets, and to support the good folks at rescues and shelters.

Go to for more!

Both Bree & Lindsay have these doors in their home and they are a great investment! Bree lives in an older ranch house and their heating bill significantly went down once this premium door was installed.

BDHPI Volunteer Appreciation Holiday Party

As the holidays approach we are always reminded of what an amazing team of volunteers we have here at BDHPI! YOU are the reason why we are able to help hundreds of Gentle Giants each year and we just want to thank you for all you do! We would like to cordially invite you all to join us to celebrate another successful year in 2011 for a Holiday Party on:

Saturday December 3, 2011 from 5:00pm to 9:30pm

In appreciation for the dedication and hard work our volunteers do all year long to support our cause here at BDHPI, the Officers have rented out a special room to host this year's volunteer holiday party at:

The Denver Zoo - 2300 Steele Street, Denver, CO 80205

Located in Denver's City Park, the Zoo's main entrance is on 23rd Avenue between Colorado Boulevard and York Street.

We booked the party on one of the few "private nights" at the zoo which means we will not be fighting the crowds like we did last year!

We will have a delicious multi-course catered meal and an all you can drink bar for $38.50 per person.

The zoo hosts a wonderful holiday attraction called "Zoo Lights" and you will also be able to walk around and see their beautiful display before or after dinner!

In our usual fashion, awards will be given to recognize some of our volunteers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. We will also have a special slide show and presentation to summarize all we have accomplished in 2011 together as a team! We hope you will join us for this special night in your honor!

Please RSVP by November 26th (we need enough time to mail you your ticket to present at the entrance) with the number of guests attending to: and mail your check made out to "Big Dogs Huge Paws" to:

Bree Dew
3400 S. Grape Street
Denver, CO 80222

You can also pay via Paypal through our website at: (make sure to put the names of all guests attending and "Holiday Party" in the Comments so we know what it is for).

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Best wishes,
BDHPI Officers
Lindsay, Bree, Kristie, Lisa, & Rand

RIP Morgan

On Friday we lost the most amazing, beautiful soul we have ever known. Morgan fought a long, hard battle but ultimately Lymphoma took her far too soon. Morgan has been through so much in the short time we've had her; at the end of May she had acl surgery and two weeks later we found out she had Lymphoma. We couldn't bear the thought of losing her so soon and she started chemo immediately. Through all the treatments she still had such an amazing personality and spirit even though we knew she wasn't feeling her best.

Morgan has made such an amazing impact on us and taught us a way to love that we never knew possible. She was a great ambassador for big dogs, she loved everyone and was so sweet to anyone she met. We were told less than two weeks ago that the cancer had become extremely aggressive, and although the last two weeks have been the hardest time of my life I am incredibly thankful for the times we had with her; her nibbling that destroyed comforters and pillows, how she would scoot across the yard on her back to grab a stick or to come to you for a belly rub, and even how on a walk if she was done walking, we were done until she was ready so we'd just sit in front of someones house, even if it was the house next door, until she was feeling up to walking again. I am so incredibly thankful that Morgan's vet saw how special she was and came to our home to help her pass to avoid her having to go through anymore stress, we were together as a family in the bed we created on the floor where we have slept for the last week.

Because of the love of Morgan and the impact she's made, we are in the process of starting a non-profit organization that assists families in our area with medical bills for their pets; I could never imagine someone having their dog diagnosed with Lymphoma, having a broken leg, or being sick and them not having the option to do all that is possible. And although we were only able to spend a little over one year with her, which was not nearly long enough, we are thankful for BDHP, for all you do, and most of all for helping Morgan so she could find us.
