Musician Inspires us to Support a Worthy Cause

Lisa Sugar is a Canadian singer/songwriter who wrote and recorded a song about a precious dog named Katie. This young dog was found homeless on the streets, emaciated, starving and placed in a high-kill shelter. Katie was saved by a rescue organization and Lisa adopted her through them. She describes Katie as a gentle, loving soul who changed her life.

After Lisa adopted Katie, she decided to volunteer with Save Me Dog Rescue because she was so grateful to have her in her life and wanted to give back to the rescue community. Her volunteer experience includes musical charity events to raise money for the rescue. Her passion for music led her to write a song about her special bond with Katie.

Her mission for the song, “Katie Love,” is to raise awareness for rescue dogs and to communicate through music the joy and peace that comes from dogs finding their forever homes. She is hoping that her song will inspire others to consider adoption instead of shopping for a dog. Lisa says “Everyone thinks I rescued Katie, but she rescued me.”

To listen to the inspiring song “Katie Love,” go to Spotify or YouTube, or play it on your favourite music streaming service (search for Katie Love by Lisa Sugar). A portion of proceeds from this song will be donated to Save Me Dog Rescue. To meet Katie, watch the music video sampler here.

Save Me Dog Rescue is a registered charity that is dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned dogs from high-kill shelters. They are an all-breed rescue with a special affinity for dogs that have had a tougher time getting out of shelters. They work in conjunction with committed volunteers, foster homes and other professionals. This enables them to rescue many animals every year, providing them with loving temporary care and finding them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes. At any given time, they may have a wide variety of dogs from puppies to super seniors.
