I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY

YES I AM ONE OF “THOSE” crazy dog rescue people!! AND I am PROUD to be one!

I wouldn’t need to be if….

People spayed/neutered their pets.
People did not abuse animals.
People didn’t neglect or dump their pets.
People realized pets are a LIFETIME committment.

It only takes a minute to share a pic and possibly save a life.

Here is a poem I want to share with you!

I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY by Janine Allen

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.
I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today. Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.
Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.
I would promise to keep her safe.
I would promise to always be by her side.
I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.
I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.

Joseph and Zeus

This is Joseph and his 15 year old deaf and slightly blind dog named Zeus, who he has raised since birth. Joseph says, “I dont want Zeus to just die, He has cared for me more than I have cared for him”, so Joseph is doing something amazing with Zeus. Ellie shared her story of meeting Joseph and Zeus with us here:http://www.dogheirs.com/dogsarefamily/posts/3312-man-takes-his-15-year-old-dog-on-one-last-amazing-journey-photos

Tinker Adopted 4/4/13

Tinker was adopted by a gentleman volunteer from the resource center food pantry, John. His dad had to be put due to age/health. I was so happy to see her climb into his lap and go home with him. I am praying this is a perfect match for both of them. 100_0912

Marnie Simmons group donated a bunch of dog food for my rescue and Ricardos. My friends Dawn and Michael picked up dog food for us from Marnie in Addison and drove it all the way here for us. God is awesome to send me angels all the time.

Welcome to Our New Foster/Volunteer

Welcome Tim Zweck from Tyler TX!!! Glad to have you onboard!

WHAT A MIRACLE!

If you remember folks, I found Stubby dashing thru cars on 294 outside Elkhart and never found his owners. He was running in circles like he was looking for them on the road. Well I just got a message from his new owner Lauren Danielle McCracken-Maguire <She and her hubby adopted Stubby to have him trained as a service dog for their 3 yr old daughter who has seizures>…. here is what she has to say… 

“Stubby saved my daughters life yesterday. She had a seizure and fell and cut the back of her head open. She was unconcious and had lost a lot of blood by the time she got to the hospital. The reason we got to her in time was because he grabbed my pant leg and dragged me into her room. So thank you for giving me the dog that saved her life.

One night he laid on top of her during a seizure until it ended. This happened while she was asleep and we havent even started training him for a medical dog yet and that was the first day they were together. He has a collar he wears at all times and a service vest when we go into public.”

 

This is a MIRACLE and what rescue is all about! God is sooo GOOD! PRAISE GOD! He knew Little Lily would Need Stubby!

Here he is laying with Lily while she sleeps!
