Anyone who has heard my daughters perform knows how much they love animals. Both of them adopted dogs who won the doggie lottery the day they went home with Jen and Rebecca. Now the Daysies are adopting the rescuers. 

The sisters have entered an informal partnership to help an area organization whose work benefits Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia. A special fundraiser is in the works for 2018 to benefit Swamp Haven, a rescue org located in St. Augustine, but whose work extends beyond that ancient city’s boundaries. Lindsey Kelley founded Swamp Haven because of her love for animals, and a personal experience.

Jennifer will have a column here with the inside scoop on how all this came to be.

Meanwhile, we’re getting the word out. We’ve adopted the rescuers, and every time a piece of Daysies merchandise is purchased, Swamp Haven will receive a portion of the sale. Along with that, the Daysies will donate a meal for each purchase.

With the holidays approaching, small organizations like Swamp Haven need all the help they can get. They focus on rescuing hard-to-place dogs, and they are hands-on with every adoption or foster effort.

To learn more, keep an eye on the Crazy Daysies on Facebook, or visit Swamp Haven’s Facebook page. This effort is part of our philosophy of life—just go out and do something good.
