The Dals need your help!

(3-25-2012) NOTICE:

We at Dalmatian Rescue of Southwest Virginia have temporarily lost our 501c3 nonprofit status due to an information report that we failed to file.   (Not a good 'excuse', but we didn't know.)    We have spoken with the IRS who has been extremely helpful in providing the forms and information that we need to restore our nonprofit status.  We will keep our adopters and supporters notified and when reinstated, our status should be retroactive to the date filed.  This was an oversight on our part and we want to say thanks to everyone who continues to believe in us.

In the meantime, we will continue to do what we do best - help Dalmatians find new and loving homes.
