Saving Maltese Nationwide
Northcentral Maltese Rescue, Inc.
It was a beautiful day for a dog walk! Nicole Orlando organized the Friends of Jupiter Pet Walk on April 19th, 2015, to honor her Maltese puppy mill survivor, Jupiter, that she adopted from Northcentral Maltese Rescue, Inc. People and their pets came from all over the Pittsburgh area to participate in the day's fun events that also included a basket raffle, a bake sale, and pet photos with a list of the dogs now available for adoption at Northcentral Maltese Rescue. Nicole spent months organizing this event, asking businesses locally and nationwide to sponsor or donate to the Rescue, gathering all the donations, filling the baskets for the raffle, designing the gift bags for the participants and preparing the smooth running of the Pet Walk. Her dedication to making this day a success has provided Northcentral Maltese Rescue with over $6500 to continue its work of saving Maltese dogs and some mixed breeds, providing their veterinary care and finding them forever loving homes. We can't thank Nicole enough for starting what will become an annual event and promoting the importance of saving and adopting a dog in need from a rescue or shelter. This event shows that Nicole's dedication and perseverance has made a big difference in what Northcentral Maltese Rescue can do for these little dogs. Thanks also go out to all of Nicole's family and friends for their assistance in making this day a rousing success! You are the best dog lovers in the world!
