The Charity is 100+plusabandoneddogs whose effort to save dogs left by owners in the Everglades to die is in need of everyone’s help and support. Their work and dedication to giving these dogs a chance for a good and loving life is truly amazing. Please go on line at 100+plusabandoneddogs.com to see on video their rescue missions to save these poor animals who have little to no hope of living. Led by the fearless Amy Roman, the founder of 100+ and her rescue team of Bev, Whitney, Carol, Charice, Liz and Tiffany these ladies forage into the Everglades to save as many dogs as they can. They then bring them back and have them vetted, fed and cared for while looking for a proper home for the dogs.

Everyone at Mind of Couture and Spruce Home & Garden support the very special search and rescue missions and extended care of 100+ and ask that you go online and make a donation. Every little bit counts and if you would like a dog for you or your family 100+ will be thrilled with your adoption of a dog.

We hope to see you at this very special "Artist’s Appearance" on August 17, 2013. SAVE THE DATE and have a fun day at Spruce Home & Garden.
