We at BaylieDog.com are a feline friendly, canine friendly community of like pet lovers. In fact, we love all God’s creatures. You will never see a request from Baylie Dog for personal donations; “chip-ins”, “contribute to” links or any type of request solely for the purpose of self-promotion or personal gain. That is not our mission statement. We are not a profit-driven community. It is also not our mission to ask you to cast a vote for us in order to place a trophy on our mantle; as public accolades are not our goal or purpose unless your vote has potential for allowing us to make a donation to a named shelter or rescue organization. Even though we have no plans to offer any Baylie Dog products in the near future, we will never solicit you to purchase any products related to Baylie Dog with the disclaimer that a “portion” of your donations will go to charity “X” without full disclosure and transparency of that percentage of disbursement.
Baylie Dog was created a little over a year ago when this author rescued a feisty little puppy who stole her heart. The reason for creating Baylie Dog’s presence on social media was for the sole purpose of connecting with like-minded pet lovers in order to share knowledge of pet related issues and enjoy a little silliness to help us through the day; not for personal financial gain.
On BaylieDog.com and Facebook page, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to offer product giveaways to our readers that have been graciously donated by our affiliates and peers in the pet industry. This is our way of showing our gratitude to you; our loyal readers in our small community of Baylie Dog. It warms our hearts to be given the opportunity to do so. Our only regret is that we cannot offer more in these difficult economic times as we know, firsthand, the ever-increasing costs involved in vetting and providing quality, nutritional food for our four-legged family members. If we make just one reader smile or enrich their day through a post, then we have accomplished our goal for the day. If we provide a brief respite to someone from the trials of their every day life for just a moment by means of one of Baylie’s silly photo’s, then we have met our expectations.
Even though we are a small community, we feel we can make a difference. If we lose sight of our purpose, as has been the case with so many communities, we encourage you to reach out to us. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for following our journey and hope you will stick around. I hope we have provided you with as much joy as you have given us.
