Surf’s Up! ADRF Sponsors “Wags and Waves” in Dallas Area

On Saturday, September 15, American Dog Rescue joined Metroplex Animal Coalition in sponsoring “Wags and Waves” – an annual fundraiser benefitting Animal Guardians of America, Feral Friends, Legacy Boxer Rescue, Cat Matchers, DFW Rescue Me and other Dallas-area animal causes. People and their pooches turned out in droves to cool off at the NRH2O Family Water Park in North Richland Hills, Texas and some even participated in a canine costume contest. “For the Love of Dogs” co-host Farah White was on hand to represent American Dog Rescue Foundation, as well as to help judge the contest. The event raised approximately $15,000 – which is certain to make a positive impact on North Texas animals in need. “Events like this are always fun to attend,” ADRF founder Arthur E. Benjamin said. “But even more importantly, this is a great opportunity to benefit many great organizations that are on the front lines helping animals each and every day.” Wags and Waves organizers recently appeared on “For the Love of Dogs” to promote the event – the full episode can be viewed here.

Arthur E. Benjamin and American Dog Rescue assist in Houston County Animal Abandonment Case

DALLAS, TX (June 24, 2011) –Executive and philanthropist Arthur E. Benjamin and American Dog Rescue (ADR), joined forces with Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) and the Houston County Sherriff’s Office to rescue 80 dogs from a 17-acre property about three hours southeast of Dallas. The sheriff’s office assumed control of the animals and custody has been awarded to ARC. ACR and American Dog Rescue on site The much needed rescue was supported greatly and made possible by ADR, resulting in the animals being pulled from vicious conditions such as temperatures exceeding 100 degrees, no access to clean water, and extreme flea infestation. “It’s devastating to know that animals were forced to cling to life in these unbearable conditions,” said Benjamin. “Once notified of the situation, I immediately activated the support of ADR to ensure that ARC and the Houston County Sherriff’s Office had all of the resources they needed to successfully remove the animals from the property. No animal in the United States deserves such inhumane treatment, and ADR is proud to support national rescue efforts that save animals, regardless of their location – our efforts see no boundaries.” At least two dogs died as a result of the desperate conditions on this property prior to ARC’s arrival. The dogs, ranging from several 8-pound Chihuahuas to a 60-pound St. Bernard mix, had lived with irregular access to food and algae-infested tubs of green water for an undetermined amount of time. One dog gave birth just days before ARC’s arrival and several other dogs are pregnant. “The thought of puppies being born into those dismal circumstances was more than enough of a reason to swiftly act in removing the animals. It’s heart wrenching that two dogs’ lives were lost before the rescue efforts were initiated, but comforting knowing that 80 others were saved in the nick of time and will be nourished, cleaned and cared for before adopted out to deserving and loving families,” said Benjamin. The animals’ previous owner moved off the property after being evicted a month ago. Lori Bowlin, President of East Texas Horse Rescue and Sanctuary, removed approximately […]
