About This Campaign

Frosty was a tough little Westie/Jack Russell mix adopted from the South Suburban Humane Society in Chicago Heights, IL on October 13, 2002 after being rescued from his first adopter that abused and neglected him. At 11 months old he was already a two-time shelter dog. His forever family decided that his new life would be filled with nothing but love.

In September 2012, after developing a cataract in his left eye, Frosty was diagnosed with progressive retinal atrophy and became completely blind by early 2013. He ended up having to have his eyes removed due to glaucoma but never let his blindness stop him from having fun and living life to the fullest.

In 2015 he was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma, a terminal cancer and passed away on May 31 of that year.  He went to the Rainbow Bridge knowing how much he was loved on this Earth.

A twice unwanted little shelter dog became an ambassador for shelter dogs, special needs dogs and canine cancer awareness. He united in love thousands of people from all over the world. He brought joy to everyone he met and touched thousands of lives. He proved that specially-abled dogs & senior dogs are not throw-aways and that they can live very full, happy lives. They deserve to be given that opportunity! He taught people that even after receiving a life-changing or even terminal diagnosis, to never give up. Live every second of life to the fullest because every second counts! Never stop living and never stop loving! Be Frosty Strong!

And so in Frosty's name, we heal the sick, treat the broken, and fight for every life that comes into SSHS.

    I'd like to make this small donation in honor of the SSHS, to all dogs in need, everywhere, and to celebrate Father's Day on behalf of two very awesome dads - both of whom love and treasure canine companions, and both whose hearts will undoubtedly be moved and touched by Frosty's story. Frosty's courage, strength, and dedication to giving back so much to a world that needs that sort of love, kindness, and graciousness from everyone - now more than ever - touched my heart beyond words. Frosty helped reduce additional suffering in the world - regardless of the many overwhelming and unfair challenges he experienced - by demonstrating love and hope in the face of cruelty and hopelessness. Rest in peace, Frosty, and to our other dearly departed pups who gave so much healing love and laughter, touched countless lives and hearts, and demanded nothing, really, in return. May Frosty's legacy of inspiration, hope, and resilience live on, blessing the lives of lonely hounds who need love, hope, respite, and to be shown a world of opportunity and kindness, to those who assist/rescue/care for them, and those blessed enough to open their homes to these dogs, to be blessed by them ten fold in return. Thank you, SSHS - for sharing Frosty's story, and continuing all the incredible hard work you do for our local, cherished animal companions and for the many ways you assist those who care for them, as well. And Happy Father's Day - to Mark, Mr. H., and all devoted, dog-loving dad's everywhere. Peace, gratitude, love and prayers for many more donations to come!
