Hawkeye Downs Helps Houston From Own Backyard

Press Release

The devastation from hurricane Harvey has affected every one of us in some way or another. There are several ways people can get involved to help the immediate efforts, and the ongoing needs.

We here at Hawkeye Downs are all about positively engaging with our community and making sure we give back to the people that need it the most through various activities and charities. As a part of these efforts, we have teamed up with Fur Fun Rescue from Lisbon to participate in a special effort to rescue animals affected by the hurricane.

The Fur Fun Rescue staff and volunteers have gone down to Texas and rescued nearly 50 dogs who are in need of care and ownership. They will be treating these animals, updating their vaccines, and then bringing them back to Iowa to be adopted by caring families.

Hawkeye Downs is proud to donate the needed facilities for the Fur Fun Rescue team to complete the necessary grooming on these furry friends. Our friends will be leaving Texas Wednesday morning and will be arriving at Hawkeye Downs in the late afternoon/evening this Thursday, Sept 7th. We are pleased to be a part of this worthy endeavor.

If you would like to make a donation, or are interested in adopting one of these pets, visit their website at www.furfunrescue.org or by mail at 229 Badger Rd, Lisbon, IA 52253​.
