This Small Paws Rescue 2017 Spring Auction is lovingly dedicated to Donna Brown. Donna was our Auction Web Mistress for the past several years, as well of one of the Members of our Board of Trustees. Donna passed away after a lengthy illness at her home in Baton Rouge, LA. on January 31, 2017.

Donna passed away from Aplastic Anemia on January 31, 2017.

It was her express desire that these auction continue for Small Paws and the Bichons.

There is a very special category in this upcoming auction, called 
"The Estate of Donna Brown."

These area items that Donna left to Small Paws to be auctioned in this Spring's auction.

(Donna was in debt when she passed due to lengthy illness. 
These few precious items, she left to Small Paws.)

There is a loss of an additional two thousand dollars a year, that came along with the Online Auctions. 

You see, Donna's previous employer, Exxon Mobile, would send a check for 
$1000.00 for the many hours of work that Donna put into each auction, twice a year.

I'm hoping we can make that lost amount up with this Spring auction, in Donna's honor.

Our new Webmistress is Jody Ferraro at jlaferr@aol.com.

If you have any questions, Jody will be happy to help!

Thank you Jody for taking on this monumental labor of love.

Ok! On your mark! Shop!

All My Love, Robin

How We got Started

I want to let those of you who do not know yet, know how we got started back in the Spring of 1998. WOW! How time flies!

At the time, the Co-Founder of Small Paws™ Rescue, Susan Sebring, and I, had first applied to join an existing Bichon rescue organization.

We both got a form letter back, telling us that rescue work took more than just a good heart and that at that time we were deemed to have been not suitable for rescue work. (Yes, that's what the letter really said...)

Though we were discouraged at first, we decided if we couldn't go to the mountain... we would move the mountain to us, and thus Small Paws™ Rescue was born.
