Our work touches and impacts people daily. We know this, but it’s still nice to receive validation. Last week, it came from a surprising source – a woman who adopted two dogs from us six years ago!
The dogs are alive and well. This woman, Rosemary P, simply wanted to let us know that we had been in her thoughts quite often and for some time. She explained that she is still blown away by the level of care she saw in our shelter at the time of her adoption.
The pair of Papillons she adopted – Joey and Middy – arrived in our care after a shelter outside our area raided a hoarder’s home, then reached out to shelters across the state when they were overwhelmed with the rescued dogs in their care.
As is often the case in these large scale hoarding/rescue situations, many shelters did what they could and opened their doors to a small number of dogs, like we did.
All the dogs found new loving homes. I happened to take this call from Rosemary who explained that her “little Band-Aids” have been a constant source of support for her and have helped her through life’s challenges.
The dogs and cats pictured here – just four of more than 100 animals available for adoption at our Center for Compassion right now -- might be Band-Aid material. They could be a young family’s first pet, a companion for a senior, wingman for a single guy, or the world’s best laptop.
