Dog Rescue: Maggie's Place auction... now online bidding


(Click on the pic to visit Maggie's Facebook page.)

(Rockland - June 9, 2015) Maggie’s Place was established in October 2012 as a small dog rescue for the Clarence-Rockland community. The idea was to take in dogs from the municipal pound once their time there was up, to ensure that they were not euthanized.

The operation has clearly been successful and well worth the effort. So far, almost a dozen dogs have been placed with new families, half a dozen reunited with their families, and six adopted here. The cost of caring for these dogs, which includes vet bills, food and infrastructure, is paid for largely through money earned from boarding. A fundraiser in 2013 helped, and this 2015 auction will help again.

Please visit Maggie's Place Auction Facebook page for more information.
