The Tender Heart of a Rescuer

One of our volunteers sent this very sweet, true story:

I am in the midst of iris sales & Sunday a young couple brought thier daughter, Dottie, with them to see the iris and buy some starts. I always have "plant orphans" that people can adopt in return for a small donation to CPCRN.

The couple chose to add a little donation to their bill and commented to Dottie, who appeared to be 7 or 8 years old, that I rescued Toto dogs. Dottie had a dollar of her own - possibly her allowance - and she insisted on donating it too. Danielle has agreed that Dottie should receive her own donation receipt and thank you.

We also plan to use the Orphan Plants for Orphan Dogs money this year to purchase the name Dottie in the "name a cairn" fundraiser, so Dottie can follow her namesake throught the Col. Potter proces from intake to adoption.  Watch for future stories about Dottie and her Cairn namesake.
