How $25,000 from HomeAgain Helps Would Aid this Shelter

With the Grand Prize money, Wish Bone Canine Rescue could move to a different location where it could house more dogs. It would also be able to create a spot dedicated to adoption appointments. It would be designed to make the first meeting less hectic and fearful for dogs, who potential adopters could then meet in a more relaxed state. An improved facility could also be even more responsive to the needs of dogs, adopters and the community.

The Wish Bone Canine Rescue is a non-profit rescue that takes dogs from high-kill shelters and finds them loving homes and families.
