I thought it would be nice to put all of our bucket list adventures in one place. Please bear with me as I find and upload all the old videos and photos. They're all on our Facebook page :)
We often take in seniors and hospice cases. We want to be able to give them as much as we can before they pass.
Note: We pay for bucket list experiences out of our own pocket. So all donations towards Bucket Lists will be used to their medical care. This is just a fun way to raise money, while treating the bullies to special experiences.

Garth bucket list Garth has an inoperable mass on his liver, as well as possible heart issues, a prolapsed urethra, and a spinal injury.

As long as he’s happy and not in pain, we will make his life as amazing as possible.

Lola bucket list Lola has genetic renal dysplasia. Her kidneys are not appropriately formed, causing her chronic UTIs. She’s also has the genetic condition hyperuricosuria , which means her body does not break down the amino acid purine. She has to have a specially formulated diet to try to manage this condition. This condition is easily avoided by doing appropriate genetic testing before breeding 2 dogs.

Libby Bucket List:
Libby was taken to the local humane society where the family requested she be euthanized. She was 15 years old and had a very large mass on her foot that was causing her pain. They thought euthanasia would be in her best interest given her age and medical condition. The humane society asked them to reach out to us instead. She was a rockstar during surgery and got the mass removed, as well as her teeth cleaned. We knew her time with us would be limited based on her age though. So we immediately started spoiling her rotten with a bucket list!
