Summer is going swimmingly at Home for Life!

With these recent steamy summer days of over 90 degrees, we thought everyone would enjoy seeing how Home for Life's staff and dogs keep it cool at the sanctuary- swimming in the Apple River! Home for Life is located on 40 acres with a mile of Apple River frontage on our property. The river is more accessible at different points so we went to a very picturesque spot for photos, not far from the sanctuary. Longtime friend to Home for Life Photographer Mark Luinenburg visited the sanctuary recently and captured some great summer photos of fun in the sun at Home for Life.

The Dodo Impact -- Featuring Home for Life

The Dodo is a halo brand for everyone who loves animals­­ from people who are obsessed with their pets all the way to committed animal advocates. We want our audience to connect with animals through our stories, and feel empowered to help where help is needed ... The Dodo was founded on the observations that animal content is among the most widely shared on social media and that people care about the welfare of animals more than ever before.
