Donate to Big Dawgs Rescue


 Big Buddy was rescued off I-5 by Stockton in 2010 and was a wonderful hiking companion and "Buddy" to Dondi.  When we got together in 2012, Monica also had a rescue (Puggle) named buddy.  That's how Buddy became Big Buddy.  We then rescued Chico, (The Chihuahua mix) from the park across the street in 2016.  Chico picked us, we believe because of Big Buddy, and they were the best of friends until Big Buddy went over the Rainbow Bridge in July 2019.  He was the sweetest boy ever and we miss him. We have chosen Big Dawgs Rescue as one of our donation sites in lieu of gifts to honor of Buddy, and to help other Buddys find their forever home. 

Ways to donate are noted below. Please note in the donation that this is for Big Buddy.
