Buckwheat was a huge part of IBR's program and was my little rock for almost 17 years. As he got older, I would have a raffle celebrating his birthday which I guessed was around Valentine's Day 2002. I had to say good bye to him on New Year's Eve but in his memory, I have taken a few wonderful donated items in the hopes that this raffle can help some of our new dogs and especially some of our senior dogs including Sadie the beagle, Bernie the Lab mix, Glori the Setter mix that is having hip surgery soon and Thelma and Louise- an auntie and niece pair of beagles aged 11 and 13. Senior dogs need a lot of extra care but Buckwheat was longer lived because of my diligence doing his annual blood work and treating his tick borne disease long term. I hope you like some of our raffle prizes and tickets run $5- $10 each. As my birthday is on Valentine's day too- I will pull the winners at that time to help make some folks happy.
Winners will be announced on Facebook and will also be notified by email. Unless noted, many prizes can be picked up at IBR HQ or shipping can be arranged. Any alcohol winners must provide proof that they are over 21. GOOD LUCK and Thanks for your support!!
