Woman bakes dog biscuits to fund pet rescue efforts

Posted: Updated:
BEAUMONT -

A Beaumont woman, who fosters hard-to-place pets is taking her rescue efforts to the  next level.

When Dawn Henson-Farley started "Cookies for Kaiser", she had no idea she was stirring up a success story.

It all started when she came across the picture on Facebook of a German Shepherd, that was scheduled to be euthanized.

When she adopted him, she also adopted all his medical issues, which is one of the reasons he was being looked over and on doggie death row, in more ways than one.

Henson-Farley says he had a 104 degree temperature, bronchitis, pneumonia, a staff infection, heart worms and was in the early stages of heart failure, along with a broken back foot.

But he did not have a broken spirit, and Henson-Farley saw that.  With five kids, five dogs and having fostered numerous animals over the years, she bit right into the challenge.

She started mixing up a recipe to pay for Kaiser's expensive medical bills, that recipe led to all natural dog cookies.

"Cookies for Kaiser" is sponsoring a military war dog clinic in Afghanistan, and funding pet rescue efforts.

You can order the cookies at the "Cookies for Kaiser" Facebook page, or you can buy them at M&D Supply stores in Beaumont and Lumberton, and at the Rustic Door in Nederland.
