Can you make a doggie dream come true?

By Dave Carew

Karin Vilanova and her husband Michael are certified dog nuts. They LOVE our canine friends (and the people they own), and have a dream related to that passion: They want to start a classy, fun, low-stress doggie daycare and cage-free boarding facility just outside Nashville. The only thing standing between them and their dream is the money needed to complete the facility, to be called Dogwood Hollow.

Would you be willing to take 60 seconds to view their fun, entertaining fundraising video?  You’ll find it here:

If you enjoy the video, please share it with your friends and consider donating to Dogwood Hollow and making a dream come true. In a world where dogs, cats, and other animals are treated with great cruelty each day, we need facilities that will treat them with kindness, sensitivity, and the tender love they deserve. That’s what will happen if Dogwood Hollow becomes a reality.

Editor’s Note: “Underground Nashville” covers artists, authors, musicians, poets, political figures, and other compelling people and happenings not typically covered by the mainstream Nashville media. It also presents reflections and commentary from an underground/indie perspective, offering “thoughts from the shadows of a great American city.”
