Puppy Shower - Operation Save Jenny's Sanity!

As you all know our amazing volunteer Jen has opened up her basement and become our very own nursery. We are currently working on reconfiguring her basement into a more efficient nursery as puppy season approaches. We are hoping to have 3 separate nursery stations to accommodate any nursing moms or puppies that we come across this spring. Jen works so hard and takes such great care of all of our puppies that we would LOVE to really stock her up with puppy supplies and make her life as easy as possible.

So we are setting up a special Amazon Wishlist and throwing Jen an online Puppy Shower… also known as Operation Save Jenny’s Sanity! We have included EVERYTHING Jen could ever possibly need to take care of our mamas and puppies. We really want to stock Jen up with mass quantities of potty pads, food, puppy toys and more so she doesn’t have to worry about running out of anything.

Operation Save Jenny’s Sanity officially begins tonight, 2/27, at 7pm when we will be posting the new wishlist. The wishlist will only be active for 48 hours. Keep a close eye on our Facebook page and event page as we will be bringing you all sorts of fun updates, surprises, trivia and a silent auction! So invite all of your friends and share like crazy!

Adoption/Foster Event at The Devoted Barn

  • The Devoted Barn

Looking for a new addition to the family or ever consider fostering a dog to teach them what living in a home is like? Join us at The Devoted Barn in Newport on November 20 to meet some of the dogs ready for that next step. 

We have everything from puppies to senior dogs, meat trade dogs from Thailand to feral dogs from the streets of Detroit, all waiting to be brought into a home. Bringing a dog into your own house not only gives that one a warm, loving place to stay, but also gives us more room in the barn to continue bringing in the worst cases and rehabilitating them to, eventually, be able to have a home of their own too. 

Please consider becoming a part of this amazing organization and come out to visit the barn on this fun day!

Feral & Fearful Dog Rehabilitation Seminar

  • Best Western Hospitality Hotel & Suites

We are exited to announce that the second Fearful & Feral Dog Rehabilitation Seminar is officially posted and will be in Shaggy's hometown, Grand Rapids, MI.

In this full day seminar, we will discuss how our program works and share all of our secrets for capturing, assessing and rehabilitating feral, semi-feral and fearful dogs. At the end of this seminar, you will have a solid understanding of fearful dogs, differences and limitations of each group, body language, rehabilitation, and training processes for these dogs in your existing shelter, home or foster-based rescue. Including how we worked with Shaggy to get him where he is today!
*Space is very limited* to ensure we can address all questions about material, programs and how to implement and begin a training program with your specific situation, population or dog(s).

Seminar includes catered breakfast and lunch as well as training materials, resources, and handouts. There will be time post-seminar to sit down one-on-one so we can answer questions about individual cases.

*All proceeds from Seminar will go to the rescue and rehabilitation of the animals at Devoted Barn*

Reserve your spot today!

Pull Through For 22

  • The Devoted Barn

Joel Rockey with One Last Treat and Zach Skow with Marley's Mutts teamed up to bring awareness to the number of veterans that take their own life every day.

22 veterans commit suicide every day.

They committed to saving one shelter dog every day for 22 days with the help of veterans along the way. Joel is ending the 22 days here with us at The Devoted Barn. We are so honored to be able to help them by taking in one of these dogs. Joel will be driving our dog from California to us. 

Dogs can play a huge part in helping our veterans. We have seen that first hand here. 

We want to give Joel a big Devoted Barn welcome so we are throwing a big party, Devoted Barn style. 

We are excited to have teamed up with The Grindstone Smokehouse once again, they will be here with their delicious food.

Please save the date and come welcome Joel, celebrate 4th of July and bring much needed awareness to this number and issue.

Together, we can bring that number down.

Good food, good friends and an issue that we need to talk about!
