Update From Dale - Dec 9, 2014

Dear friends of Russell Refuge,

So many if you have rushed in with kind words and gifts of support since our tragic fire. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You've gotten all of us at Russell Refuge through the worst time in our history. You've also had questions, as I do. What happened? What's next? What about the surviving dogs?

Briefly, here's what I can tell you now.

What Happened?

The Dutchess County Sheriffs Dept is still investigating. As a result we cannot touch the fire site or begin clean up. My suspicion is that it will prove to be an electrical fire. All of our systems were up to code, but given the recent bouts of harsh weather I do wonder if we were overtaxed. I will share the sheriff's report in due course.

What About the Survivors?

The outer kennels were untouched by the fire and the 17 dogs in them remain fine despite the shock of the fire. The 12 dogs we were able to rescue have been safely treated and boarded at Rhinebeck Animal Hospital. We go there to see them, walk them and console them daily. We are forever indebted to Dr. Tumolo and his staff. This week will determine how long they can stay there, and if we can find suitable foster homes, adopters or corporate sponsors for housing. We know a long tough winter is ahead. Please share this letter with anyone you think can help.

What's Next

Hope

I still believe in Hope. You all remember sweet blind Hope found as a stray in Yonkers who perished in Thursday's fire. Well we honor her and the others who perished on Thursday as well as any being that has suffered cruelty or neglect by carrying on. We will prevail. So broadly speaking we want to rebuild the kennel but will look to create a new home in 2015. I think it may be an existing structure in Dutchess County, appropriately zoned for us, with water, electric and all necessary utilities.

To that end we need:
  1. Funds to keep moving forward
  2. A professional real estate broker to help find our new home
  3. A great journalist to tell our story and help our appeal
  4. Corporate sponsors to provide in-kind and financial support

Thank you for checking in on us, for all that you've done and might do. You remind me why we at Russell Refuge will always believe in hope.

Even blind Hope.

Love, Dale

Please don't miss reading our Letters From Home.
