Hello,
As I sit here writing this, the holidays are over and 2015 is upon us. January 2015 marks two years since
TFTR, Inc.’s founder, Pat Land, passed away. We miss her terribly but her work continues.
As the current President of TFTR, I have to say this group runs with the amazing work of our VicePresident,
Samantha Dominguez, and our Secretary/Treasurer, Leslie Greenwalt. Together they are the
backbone of TFTR. They work tirelessly to help the TFTs in need and to keep this group going in the right
direction. I also want to mention Dianne Clark, who is always available to help us identify a dog as a TFT,
TFT mix, Rat Terrier, or something else. When we get pictures, we don’t always know what the little one
is and Dianne makes the answer much clearer. Then there is Kiersten Cremin who is our volunteer
coordinator. Most of our volunteers, and potential volunteers, have had the chance to “meet” Kiersten
so she is already familiar to you. We truly hope Kiersten will become an officer in 2015. We have also
recently offered the position of transport coordinator to someone and we really hope she accepts.
In addition to the above mentioned officers and members, I also want to give a big shout out to our
volunteers, the true heartbeat of rescue. If it wasn’t for the people who foster, transport, check out
shelters, donate items to our auctions, buy the auction items, buy the products we sell, make generous
donations throughout the year, and generally spread the word about TFTs in need, we would not survive
as a rescue group, plain and simple. There are not enough words to thank you for what you do for us
and our beloved Toy Fox Terriers.
In the past year, we held our first Halloween costume photo contest, conducted our 2nd annual auction,
sold our first calendar, sold our first t-shirt and hoodie, our Facebook following has grown by 1,000
(from 490 in December ‘13 to 1496 currently), and we have revamped our website www.tftrescue.com
to name a few. Our treasury just about doubled in 2014. All thanks to our followers.
As we move forward in 2015, we are looking back in review in order to fix the things we didn’t do as well
as we should have and setting our goals for the upcoming year. We hope that you will continue to
follow us on Facebook and watch our website for our news and most importantly, for the dogs that
need our help. It takes a village to help as many TFTs as possible.
Thank you, again, for all of your support and dedication…

Kiersten, the TFTR volunteer coordinator here! We’d like to continue growing our volunteer network from coast to coast, so in June we’re going to focus on high-kill states like California, Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania (but if you live in another state, let us know you’d like to volunteer, because we need volunteers in every state!).

Please post a reply here with your state, as well as send us a private message on Facebook so that we can share our volunteer app with you! You can also check out our new TFTR website at http://www.tftrescue.com/ and download the forms there, too!

Volunteer opportunities include fostering, transporting, fundraising, grant writing, helping with administrative tasks, and more!

We had so much fun getting to know our May volunteers, we’re looking forward to talking with our soon-to-be newest volunteers in June!

Hi everyone, I’m Kiersten, the TFTR volunteer coordinator! We’d like to build our volunteer network from coast to coast, so we’re kicking off May with a volunteer drive focused on some of our high need states. This month, we’re focusing on the big state of Texas (but if you live in another state, go ahead and let us know you’d like to volunteer, because we need volunteers in every state!). 

Please post a reply to here or send us a private message on Facebook, or complete a Volunteer Application and return it to tftrescue@yahoo.com. I’ll then follow up to talk with you about how we can all work together to find loving homes for the dogs in TFTR! Volunteer opportunities include fostering, transporting, fundraising, grant writing, helping with administrative tasks, and more!
