About a month ago I met an extraordinary man named Ken Keane and his doodle Ladro at the Brookdale Dog Park here in Montclair. We started chatting --the usual small talk as our doodles happily romped and played and Ken mentioned in that conversation that Ladro was a rescue dog adopted from a Florida shelter.
Of course our talk turned to the subject of dog rescue and then DRC and eventually our website dilemna. 2 hours later as the sun was setting we noticed that we were the last to leave the park as we were so engrossed in our conversation that we completely lost track of time. We exchanged numbers, said our goodnights and gathered our doodles for the short drive home.
That evening Ken joined DRC.
I awoke the next morning (or was it "afternoon?..lol) to hear from Karen that overnight Ken had made a thoughtful donation to DRC to be put towards our website costs. I thought:
"What a sweet gesture! My new friend is showing his support for our cause!"
...and I proceeded to open the automatic email alert from Paypal expecting to find a modest gift.
What I found to my astonishment was an unbelievably generous gift that not only covers our website fees for the entire year, but for the next 5 as well! To say that I was surprised beyond words is an understatement.
If you have a moment please stop by Ken and Ladro's page and thank him for his incredible gift to us and the doodles that we do our best to save every day.
Thank you Ken...You are DRCs rescue angel.
