Dog Caretakers! Come!

Take your pooch to Crate this Saturday, December 10th to have his picture taken with Santa. Santa is really special this year. In fact s(he) must really be one of his elves…. hope I didn’t just give away the secret! Join us between 4 and 7pm. Refreshments will be served.

Crate Escape too
Santa visited CE2 last Saturday and a good time was had by all! The same Santa/ elf (??) described above was there to cheer on the dogs; getting them to settle in her lap. Very interesting because she knew all the dogs and they knew her….. hmmm. That North Pole community is more plugged in to us than we know! Oh, ok… thanks Alyssa for being such a great santa/elf. For all who visited us, thanks! Come back soon! Big thanks to Katelyn who was our photographer de nuit.

More Holiday Cheer
Truly loverly news, Angelina has been adopted! Many of you got to meet her. We offered to take the adorable, young puppy so she could leave the shelter where she ended up. She stayed with us for 2 weeks before finding a forever home. She is truly a love; everyone who met her felt the same. More good news is that she will be coming to Crate for daycare a few times a week. Whoopee!

Fosters Needed
Crate Escape is going to consistently be sponsoring rescue dogs who need homes going forward. Sponsoring = taking responsibility for a shelter dog and helping to find a foster home and then a forever home.
If you have considered fostering; each time someone agrees to give a shelter dog a temporary home it opens 1 space in the shelter and literally saves one more dog’s life. If you have never tried it now’s a great time. If you have taken a break for a while, now is the time. PLEASE step up and help. It really is not that hard, we will get you a crate, pay for vet care and dog food, All you have to do is love and care for them until their forever home comes along. It is a great learning experience for your kids too. They can see how they can make a difference and save a life. Contact Nikki or Barb ( for more info. Thanks.

Ernestine our Rover Reporter was unusually busy last week. She is used to running the show at home; keeping her two brothers in line; but last week ‘lil Lina, the 4 month old, totally crazy puppy rescue stayed at Ernie’s house too! Lina loves Emmitt, who is a rescue, and somewhat wary of love from anyone! And Sundance didn’t know WHAT was going on, this female ‘thing’ that jumped in his bed and wanted to play! Way too much! All of this leads up to Ernie being late with her article for this week. Hopefully we can add it before the next blog!
