Racine, WI, February 27, 2012 – Ginny Singleton and Katie Navarro, with Katie’s Canine Klubhouse of Caledonia, WI has come to the rescue of Lizzy! She was the hero dog who woke-up Katie Musurlian from a deep sleep on February 23rd when a fire was destroying her Racine home.
Thanks in part to the Racine Journal Times article, Katie’s Canine Klubhouse owner heard about how the dog owner would be separated – and possibly put-up for adoption – if another solution was not available. Therefore, the Klubhouse will be taking care of Lizzy, the terrier mix, while the home is being repaired. Initial estimates are it may take six weeks. Crystal Glade, Red Cross Disaster Services was not surprised about the out-pouring help in the Racine community. Crystal commented, “Racine is place where people help their neighbors and we see it through the eyes of Red Cross volunteers and our supporters.”
