I would like all of Gentle Ben's followers and supporters to know that after 11 years of operating our rescue at our home, without incident, the Borough of New Sewickley Township has now made the decision to classify Gentle Ben's as a commercial "kennel", instead of a rescue. A kennel is not permitted in our residential zone. This means that Gentle Ben's will be forced to close and the large breed dogs we take in will face uncertain futures that almost certainly will include euthanization.
During the past 11 years, Gentle Ben's has saved hundreds of dogs and have found homes for many in return. Many of our followers are families who have either had to surrender their beloved pet due to a family illness or death, due to their home being in foreclosure and having to move to an apartment, or due to other situations such as a new baby or divorce. Whatever the reason, we have always been here to help and open up our home to these unfortunate dogs who, by no fault of their own, end up in these situations. We have wonderful relationships with several of the local shelters and we are the first contact on their list when a large breed dog is surrendered to them. We support our community and participate in events to promote rescue.
Many of our supporters and followers have adopted from us....not once but two or three or four times. They keep coming back for a reason. They know we care for these dogs as one of our own family and they are well loved and socialized while they are with us. We spend thousands of dollars of our own money to help vet these dogs and nurse them back to health.
Just imagine if Gentle Ben's ceased to exist. Where would these dogs go? Who would they turn to? The potential for these dogs to be euthanized would be extremely high.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please take a close look at the video. Many of these dogs came from horrendous situations but look at them now. This is what we are all about. Helping the dogs feel a sense of belonging, comfort, and love. This could all be taken away in a moment's notice
