Without our sponsors we could not have helped the miniature schnauzers that needs major medical care due to the costs:

 Our number one sponsors are the wonderful people who help out through the year. Through their time, talents, and monetary donations yearly helped over 175 schnauzers in the past 5 years. If you would like your name to be added let us know.

Sponsor volunteers are:

Pam and Pat O’Brien
Rebecca Forman and Kyle Hammond

Nuisance was surrendered to MSPMSR because the landlord got complaints that he was barking.  The elderly man had to part with his dog of 11 years old so he could keep living in his apartment.  Shortly after we discovered some lumps and he was diagnosed with cancer.  It is very progressive and he only had a short time to live.  His foster Dad’s will make sure he lives comfortable.  His future vet                                                                  bills will be covered by donations.

His sponsors are:

Steve and Bob (Foster Dad’s)

Jim background was being in a puppy mill for the first years of his life.  Slowly he came out of his shell and warmed up to humans for the first time in his life. Unfortunately he never knew chewing up a halter would mean a few vet visits.  After x-rays, special diet, and the watchfulness of his foster Mom, he did recover without surgery.  Taking him in for emergency care, x-rays, and special food was paid for by some very special people.  His sponsors were:

Chris Hanisch and Rebecca Dobmeyer.
