• Apparel - NO DOG LEFT BEHIND (Goliath memorial t-shirt)

    $25.00

    As I type this shirt description, I have to admit...it is emotional for me. You see, this is Goliath and our hearts are broken due to his passing.  As one of the Texas Wolfdogs that we rescued back in the summer of 2020, his poor old heart was not strong enough to continue beating.  After years of living with heartworm disease, by the time we rescued these dogs and got him to the vet, he wasn't able to go on.

    Not only does this design serve as a memorial to him but our mantra of "NO DOG LEFT BEHIND" displays proud and strong of who we are and brings us back full circle to where we began.

    Villalobos Rescue Center got its start back in the 90's as a "wolf and wolfdog rescue".  We would eventually "retire" from that community and began taking on another very misunderstood canine: The Pit Bull dog. Between the "big, bad wolf" and the dogs with "locking jaws", we found ourselves defending these Victims of the Myth on a daily basis.

    For many years, we have catered to the Pit Bull but after moving to Louisiana in 2011, we quickly saw the need to expand our rescue efforts to all breeds, sizes and types of dogs (and yes...even cats).

    But it was getting involved in our largest rescue effort in VRC history that catapulted us back in time.  After making the journey to Texas to assist in the rescue of 50 plus wolfdogs, we found ourselves reliving those memories and thus...VRC - TEXAS was born.

    The purchase of any of our VRC - TEXAS merchandise will go directly to the new wolfdog sanctuary located in Athens, TX.  The property still needs a lot of work and the wolfdogs need continued medical attention as well. Any and all support for the dogs that are "caught between two worlds" would be so appreciated.

    Sizes 2XL - 4XL are $5 more due to the manufacturer's cost to me.

    100% preshrunk cotton
