At Savvy we believe that in the end true happiness comes not from what we have, but from what we have given away. That being said, each year Savvy chooses a nonprofit organization to support and embrace.
Dirk’s Fund: Golden Retriever and Large Breed Rescue is our 2017 Charity of Choice. Their story began in the 1980s, when the founder and his wife started rescuing dogs. Through the popularity of their own golden retrievers, Sadie and Hannah, they were contacted by animal control regarding a golden retriever that was going to be euthanized. They were able to find her a home and then replaced her with another homeless dog. This is the cycle that started Dirk’s Fund. In 1999 Dirk’s Fund became an official nonprofit rescue with 501c3 status, and in 2008, Dirk’s Fund moved into their shelter in Pacific, Missouri. They now rescue dogs from around the midwest region using a network of volunteers and supportive veterinarians. To learn more about Dirk’s Fund and how you can help, click here.
