Done and done.
Hillegass says her Bucky Dog service, which seeks to directly connect active dog lovers with dogs looking for some much-needed outdoor jaunts, has seen remarkable success in its first year. And due its commitment to donate $1 from each walk and $3 from each night of boarding to Kiddo, Bucky Dog has raised $3,627 in that span.
“I was quite surprised by that number,” Hillegass says. “We really are having a big impact, and it’s because of the customers. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to do this.”
In case you haven’t heard it yet, Bucky Dog is named after Buck, (known by most as Bucky), a black labrador retriever who became Paige Hillegass’ sidekick after her freshmen year at Washington & Lee University in Virginia and was by her side day and night until died in June 2006, not long after his Sweet 16 birthday party and almost immediately after Hillegass found out she was pregnant after years of trying to do so.
