ARF dog, Blaze is feeling grrrreat thanks to the amazing donation from Lori, Rob, and adopted ARF dog, Ivey!
Blaze was rescued several months ago on a frigid winter day with a severe skin condition. Shortly after his rescue, a special care package arrived in the mail for Blaze including two cozy coats to keep his patchy skin warm, omega 3 supplements, nutritious dog treats, squeaky stuffies, and $150 towards his veterinary costs!
Blaze is now well on his way to recovery thanks to the kindness and generosity of ARF supporters.
