Want Rummy To Visit Your School, Church, Library, Girl Or Boy Scout Club For Inspiration Day, Career Day or Other Special Day?
Rummy is a blind Siberian Husky from the streets of Houston who won the 2007 nationwide Purina Rally to Rescue contest, went to Hollywood and kissed a movie star! Since winning the contest, Rummy and Lisa, Rummy’s mom, visit children to help them understand how important it is to love and care for animals.
What does Rummy do? Gives kisses; puts his paw on a child’s hand; listens as children whisper secrets in his ear; shares his positive energy. After the children meet Rummy and get kisses, they lie on the floor next to him and watch Lisa’s slide show presentation. She shows pictures of Rummy in Hollywood, his luxurious hotel, the movie star he kissed…and then she tries to help people understand what Rummy went through on the streets of Houston.
Lisa discusses how dog rescue works, how to rescue ANY breed of dog, what to do when you see an animal in need, puppy mills, why it is important to spay / neuter pets, dog fighting (no gory pictures) and gives details on who to contact if someone you know is involved in dog fighting or animal abuse. She explains how a dog could change their life, how to learn dog behavior and train dogs, which TV shows to watch to inspire their dog education, careers with dogs or animals and what to do NOW to help influence their career. Then, Rummy sings and pictures are taken.
Hearing someone talk about dog rescue is one thing. Meeting a blind dog rescued from the streets of Houston, who went to Hollywood, kissed a movie star and now owns his own business is another. The children see pictures of a starving, sick, blind dog from the streets (Rummy), while getting kisses from that very dog – a dog society "threw away". It makes an impact – the children experience animal compassion right then and there. And MAYBE they will choose NOT to get involved in dog fighting or animal abuse because Rummy taught them that animals have feelings, emotions and personalities.
It is easier NOT to discuss animal abuse and dog fighting. But whether you do or not - the largest dog fighting ring in the nation was busted in Houston, November 2008 AND 1 in 4 kids in high school is involved in, or knows someone involved in dog fighting. 1 in 4! Please, allow Rummy to come work his magic with your students. Help us make an impact. There is no charge for Rummy appearances and presentations are about an hour.
