The Love Shelby Fundraiser
The Love Shelby Collection for the National English Shepherd Rescue 2017
Below is our dear friend Lonnie's story behind our Love Shelby Fundraiser, we hope that you would like to support us in raising as much money as possible for the NESR, to help rescue and rehome as many sheppies as possible. 100% of the profits from the Love Shelby collection will be going directly to the NESR.
Many of you may already know Shelby through Facebook. She isn't a NESR dog, but her little brother Lincoln is. Their stories became intertwined the week of January 10th, 2017. The week we adopted NESR's Rick/Lincoln, is the same week Shelby was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma cancer in her right front leg. My heart was full, then broken at the same time. If it wasn't for the prayers and support of our English Shepherd friends and family, I don't know how I would have made it through these dark days. Shelby and I, had a heart to heart chat, and she asked me to try and raise money for more dogs like her little brother Lincoln. They all deserve a loving, furever home. With the help of our friends, Coz McLavy, and Beverly Fincannon, they have designed artwork from one of my photos of Shelby and created the mud splatter design for the collection. The Shelby artwork is going to be on shirts, and many other incredible items that you will be able to purchase online. We are comforted knowing Shelby is leaving a legacy of love, and she will help touch the lives of many more dogs, and humans too. Thank you all for your love and support!
With love Shelby, Lonnie & the Miller Family
