Thank You from RSVC Rescue!

Updated: 10/11/2017


Last Friday night, the RSVC Rescue hosted a booth at the #LovePup Family Fest at Vertuccio Farms in Mesa.


We were one of 32 dog rescues participating! We met so many people!


Thank you!! Thank you!!!! Tom and Ann Lundquist brought their rescue, sweet Vienna to the event. Once Vienna warmed up she was the star of the show! Her true calling is on a table. She was saying hello to everyone, letting everyone hug on her and pet her and showed off her obedience tricks. Vienna came to the RSVC Rescue and found her forever home with Tom, Ann and their Vizsla Ginger.  Thank you for helping and sharing Vienna Tom and Ann!


Thank you so much to the sweet Nancy Holmes and her super cute and well behaved Callie! She took her turn on the table too, and was of course a people magnet also! Callie did so very well. She had a couple unattended youngsters messing with her and she handled it was amazing tolerance. She also really enjoyed our booth neighbors who had some kittens.


Overall, this was a great event! A lot of people learned about the breed and our rescue!


Thanks to all!
