Rescue Intro

Freddie, my heart dog forever!

 

My Rescue stories are not just about how some dogs have found good homes, but rather how some dogs and cats were destined to find the right human to change their person’s life forever. Although our family had many dogs while I was growing up, my rescue stories begin when I was recently widowed, and starting a new chapter of my life.

Looking back at all of my adopted animals, it’s difficult to imagine that they were someone’s throw aways. The truth is that with the exception of my first dog, Bill and my cats, Fergus and Felix, I don’t know any of their histories. Often I imagine that my animals came from abusive or neglectful situations, but it’s just as possible they were lost or stolen from a yard. Maybe someone is still grieving for their loss.  I’ll never know…

Those of us who have rescued pets understand all too well, what possible fates await these poor creatures in high-kill shelters and so we bring them home and love them.  This is really so little compared to what they give us in return by filling our hearts and remaining there forever…
