After reaching out to their contact person at SDWR numerous times with no response this Spring, Heidi
and her family began to do research into why there had been no communication over the preceding
months. They realized the website’s fundraising page had disappeared, the office phone numbers were
disconnected and learned that SDWR had declared bankruptcy. Unfortunately, SDWR has now been deemed a big
scam. Heidi learned that SDWR has taken advantage of numerous other families. In fact, there are at least 206 other families who are in similar situations, and over 49 families have filed lawsuits against SDWR.
The money was gone and no dog was coming. Nikee was heartbroken.
