Baxter, the missing therapy dog
We are searching for Baxter, the missing therapy dog and need funds to continue this urgent search
Baxter snuck out of his fenced yard in Bakersfield, CA, on Saturday, December 22nd. A neighbor saw a small light colored honda type 4 door SUV driven by a woman who stopped her car and a little girl picked him up in front of his home. He has been missing ever since.
He is a registered, trained therapy dog who visits elderly at Delano District Skilled Nursing Facility and helps many children at the Edison schools on a daily basis. His story has been featured on local TV stations FOX, ABC and NBC and the story was picked up by CNN's website. He also was featured in a local newspaper article. His facebook page, "Baxter, the missing therapy dog" chronicles the amazing efforts put into bringing him home and currently has over 155 "likes".
Hundreds of dollars have already been spent on flyers, pet amber alert phone calls and mailings to vets and groomers. We would like to hire an independent PR person to get the story published in the Spanish community, as well as further distribution within CA.
Any donations not used towards Baxter's search will be donated to Kern County Animal Shelter in honor of Baxter and the memories he gave many of us. He will never be forgotten.
