More Selfies!

Have you sent in your Selfie yet?

A HUGE ‘Thank You’ to all the Volunteers that have and continue to participate in our January Selfie Challenge!  It is not too late to send yours in by January 31st, we’d love to see them!  Check out these freshly captured cute moments from the Sanctuary:


Great job Carrie capturing a very busy doggie – Chase!



Leroy loves snuggling up this close :)  Carrie are you still back there?


Love it! Leroy appears to be a willing accomplice to our Mackenzie’s Selfie Challenge – great job Carrie!


Nicole & Quincey – Wonder what he’s looking at? Possibly some pay off for this shot – say a treat or a squeaky toy? Great look in his eye – very focused sidekick!



Paula & Star! I think Star has done this before and knows what to do –       lovely pose ladies!

Meet Quincey – a Sponsor dog!

A $25/month Sponsorship donation (or a one-time $300 payment) via Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary helps us to care for one of these dogs for one month (or one year). For Sponsoring a dog you’ll receive:

A photo and biography about your sponsored dog
A certificate documenting your sponsorship


Quincey was found tied up to one of the barns at Mackenzie’s one cold winter morning – and he was not happy about that!  It took our Staff and Volunteers several hours to calm him down to get close enough to bring him inside.

Quincey now allows Staff and special Volunteers to spend time with him.  He loves to show off how well he can sit, shake, sit pretty, roll over and lay down – he is very smart!  Since it takes a while for Quincey to warm up to new people, it has been very hard to find a family who understands his personality and needs.  But we will never stop working with him, loving him and maybe one day finding a forever home just right for Quincey!

Cola still ‘happy as ever’!

PUPDATE:  Erin sent us this update on Cola, adopted three years ago from Mackenzie’s. Thanks Erin!  So glad Cola has become such a big part of the family!


“Hello Mackenzie’s, Cola here!! I’ve been at my forever home just over 3 years now and I’m still happy as ever!!  I have a “little” sister (she’s much bigger than me) who I love playing with and sharing bones with!  It’s nice because she starts chewing my bones to soften them up for me and then let’s me take over.  I’m very loved!  Every night I sleep in my human sisters bed and make sure she keeps warm as she sleeps!  I want to say thank you for rescuing me so I could find my furever home!!  Xoxo!”  – Cola

Are you looking for that special dog to complete your family?  If so, please contact our Adoption Coordinator, Tommie, at 616-693-2490 today!  We have lots of wonderful dogs like Cola waiting… waiting for you?
