I rescued a human today

I received this in one of the groups I belong to. I will be more than happy to credit whomever is responsible for it. It is a great thought.




I rescued a human today

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 wouldnʼt be afraid.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldnʼt feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someoneʼs 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 havenʼt walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.


Red, the dog pictured here would love to save you. Call 955-4131 and ask about him. Or check out all the available animals for adoption here.
