I have found that most ‘dog people’ I meet support various charities that show their love of dogs. I am no exception. Today, however, I stumbled across a special charity that would allow me to become a Fairy Dog Mother.
They are Fairy DogParents, a non-profit in the state of Massachusetts. The founder’s dog, Ladybug, was the inspiration behind the initiative. Ladybug was already a senior dog when she was adopted from a shelter and her adoptive family considered themselves lucky that they could afford Ladybug’s medications for kidney disease, dementia and other ailments. When Ladybug had to be put to sleep, her owner asked that the vet’s office re-distribute Ladybug’s un-used medication to someone who could use it.

And from there, the idea grew. There are many dogs who are surrendered to shelters because of economics. Their families simply can’t afford their care, particularly as they age or develop special health conditions.
Fairy DogParents has a simple application process for owners in need. They serve Massachusetts residents only but hope to expand. As with most non-profits, they are always in need of donations of goods, money and time. Want to be a Fairy Dog Mother? Follow the link below:
