Christmas ornaments for you this year. Available through Paypal, they are $8 for one and $12 for two, and this includes shipping! Various colors and finishes, and feel free to specify color, but we cannot guarantee your selected color due to the limited quantities——we will send them out first come first serve. Order yours now using the Paypal button below! Pink, Green, Blue and Teal. All proceeds go to support our animals and their needs!


Come check out all our SPEAK! products! All proceeds from products in our shop go to support the animals that we bring in to rescue. We have significant medical costs for these homeless animals, and your support makes that care possible!!

Speak! is struggling these days with a lack of funds. This happens to all rescues at some point, and it seems we have had some very expensive health cases lately – nothing dramatic, but lots of medically intensive cases like Megaesophgus, heart and kidney conditions, as well as the ever present heart worm cases. So, we come to you with a request:

Do you work for organizations or own a business that would donate to our rescue? We are looking for everything from money (corporate sponsorship!) to gift cards to entire gift baskets, and unless it can be sent in the mail and/or redeemed locally, we need items to be local to the Columbus, OH area. Please send us a message to let us know what either you or your organization can contribute, and we will make sure that your organization also gets lots of great PR for the support. Thanks everyone!!!

And as always, if you feel moved by what we do, you donate via paypal:

Merle to Merle Breeding … by Keller’s Cause




“Merle” is a desired coat pattern in several breeds. Breeding two merle patterned dogs together puts each puppy at a 25% risk of inheriting the merle gene from each parent. These puppies are called “double merles,” and they are often born with a mostly white coat.

Lack of pigmentation in certain areas causes developmental issues like deafness and blindness. A large majority of double merles are born with these issues, and they’re completely preventable.
