The Story of molly

Molly...her spirit lives in every sale we make.

Molly...her spirit lives in every sale we make.

I have had the good fortune to be blessed with the companionship of many great dogs over the years--most of whom came from shelters or rescue organizations.  Having been involved in Newfoundland rescue for a long time, I happily accepted the call when I learned about Molly, a young Newfie who was taken out of an abusive home at the age of 18 months.

Starved, beaten and afraid of everyone when she came to us, this young lady quickly discovered the joys of a loving family and made an amazing turnaround.  With an indomitable spirit and zest for life, Molly bounded through the house with a grin on her face and a wagging tail that belied her past.

We nicknamed her "Purpose".  She had a purpose in everything she did, and that purpose was to enjoy every day and make those around her happy!

Sadly, Molly was afflicted with serious heart disease.  Disease that, I suspect, could have been treated with proper medication at a young age.  The vets told me there was nothing we could do for her, and that her life would likely be cut short due to sudden cardiac arrest.  They were right.  

Nine months after finding her "forever" home, Molly died.  I will never forgive the people who abused her, but the gift Molly gave me was to help me find my purpose--to raise money to help our shelters and rescue organizations take care of the wonderful animals that God entrusted to us.

 

In honor of Molly and all the shelter animals like her, we donate 25% of our profits to the Saint Bernard Rescue Foundation, Newfoundland Rescue, Mastiff Rescue, Bernese Mountain Dog Rescue and other large breed rescue groups. 

We are also proud to support F.U.R.S. (Friends United for Richmond Shelters) and other local shelter groups.   If you are involved in a shelter or rescue organization and are interested in partnering for fund-raising, please contact me, Pat Ferrell, at 937.271.2480 or via email at pferrell@seasons-celebrations.com. I'm always happy to help.

Let's stop the abuse--and keep Molly's memory alive, forever.
