I wanted to express my gratitude to BasicLink.com for designing, building, and hosting our website for about 10 years.
We were briefly hosted by webhost.com, with our database parked at helios.org. Neither provided much support,
both are free services. They kept us online while I searched for a more permanent solution.
We are now hosted by Kualo.com, a British concern. They are providing web hosting, database hosting, and
really excellent support -
all for free! You'll notice their link on the bottom of our splash page. Like most dog rescues, ours is run on a
shoestring budget. We are very grateful to Kualo for supporting us in our efforts.
Thanks to Gillian Hughes-Fenchel (my daughter) and Ryan Hughes-Fenchel
(my son) for their help with adding functionality and
their continued support.
Thanks to Dr. Kent Archie, with whom I worked for many years, for providing SO MUCH assistance when we had to
transition off of BasicLink. I'm strictly a back-office programmer; Kent's knowledge of web programming
made the transition much less painful than it otherwise would have been.
Thanks to the volunteers who make our existence possible.
Thanks to the adopters who take in someone else's garbage and make it a wonderful friend.
And ... apologies to those folks who have come to us for a dog but
didn't get one. We undoubtedly make mistakes in our placements. We work
with very limited resources and make our best guess ... please remember
that, as wonderful as Sammies are, there are LOTS of other marvelous dogs
available at municipal shelters. We get most of our sammies from municipal
shelters. If we passed you over for an adoption PROVE US WRONG! Get a dog from a municipal shelter and make him a
loving family member.
Here I am skijoring in Wisconsin with my collie Suki, who thought she was a sled dog, and my first Samoyed Zephyr.
Here I am skijoring in Michigan with my second Samoyed Gusty, and my gorgeous mutt Vita rescued from a road in Kentucky.
