Don't you just love showing your dog how great he is with a special cookie from Gourmutt's Bakery? What's that? Your dog has never had a treat from Gourmutt's? Well, you have to fix that right away! They have a wonderful bakery where they create fresh, gourmet treats and cakes at their bakery, using all natural human quality ingredients with no added sugar, salt or chemical preservatives. Their hand-made, colorful treats are not only cute as can be, but they are healthy, too. They are fun for a special occasion or to give as gifts, or just to surprise your pooch to remind her how important she is to you. You can visit them at the Falls of Neuse Shopping Center (Lower Level) or at www.gourmuttsbakery.com to find a store near you. You'll also find premium dog foods and a complete boutique stocked with the best of everything for your dog.
As if that weren't enough, Gourmutt's Bakery is a very generous supporter of Saving Grace. They tell their customers about us and have held several fundraisers for us. They also save any donations they can to pass along to the Saving Grace dogs. If you'd like to help us out by donating supplies, Gourmutt's kindly acts as a drop off point!
They have even sent out emails to help collect supplies and to ask for extra help for Saving Grace in tough times. All well-mannered, leashed dogs are welcome at the Gourmutt's Bakery. So why not pay them a visit, show off your Saving Grace dog, and let your pooch pick out a special goodie!
There's something magical about the way professional photographer Diane Lewis reveals the personality and spirit of every animal she captures on film. Her camera shows the tilt of the head, the soft expression in the eye, the way the light makes those little whiskers on a puppy's chin stand out. So when Diane turns her camera on the Saving Grace dogs, she brings their individuality to life for potential adopters, making that special match all the more likely.
Diane's first dog came from a shelter, and photographing wayward dogs to help them find homes has always been important to her. In fact, she left the world of financial analysis to become a full-time photographer specializing in dogs (she also photographs other animals and children). Her amazing talent for getting a squirmy subject to show off their best side is nationally known; her work has been showered with awards and her dog images have been featured in books, on magazine covers and in advertising for major corporate clients.
Each week Diane photographs the Saving Grace dogs with the same care and professionalism she takes with any pet she works with. Her generous gift to Saving Grace in the form of these photos is also a gift to anyone who visits the Saving Grace website. You can see some of the magic for yourself on "Our Dogs" page.
Diane is available for private photo sessions; visit her website at www.dianelewisphotography.com.
The entire staff of Wake Forest Animal Hospital offers amazing support to Saving Grace. The veterinarians have donated their time for after-hours emergencies and surgeries; they send families looking to adopt dogs to our organization; and they donate supplies they no longer need. Visit their website: wakeforestah.com
This mobile spay/neuter clinic makes a HUGE difference toward animal welfare in our community. They help Saving Grace by working around the organization's schedule and taking in last-minute surgeries every week. They help the rest of our community by traveling where they are needed most, reaching lower income populations and offering their services. This goes a long way toward reducing the pet population and the large number of dogs that end up in shelters. In most instances, it's the only vet care those animals will ever get. Visit them at www.snap-nc.org!
Happy Dog Fun offers all kinds of dog care services. Check them out at happydogfun.com. They offer discounts to Saving Grace alumni, and have helped Saving Grace enormously over the years.
Additionally, make sure your four-legged best friend comes home with a great haircut! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for grooming services.
Leith Toyota has graciously ran several promotions for Saving Grace. Through them they have donated over $10,000. Show your support by heading over to leithtoyota.com.
Special thanks to the N.C. State veterinary students who come out to Saving Grace at least once a month. The veterinary students volunteer their time and receive field experience, while our dogs get extra special medical care! With the help of N.C. State vet students, we are able to get dogs spayed/neutered shortly after they arrive at Saving Grace, getting them ready to be placed in their forever home.
