WE TAKE CARE OF YOU!
His eyes met mine as he walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt his need instantly and knew I had to help him. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so he wouldn't be afraid. As he stopped at my kennel I blocked his view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want him to know that I had not been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and
I didn't want him to think poorly of them.
As he reached my kennel I hoped he wouldn't feel sad about my past.
I only have the future to look forward to, and
I want to make a difference in someone's life.
He got down on his hands and knees and made funny sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and the side of my head up against the bars to comfort him. He seemed so sad..... Gentle fingers caressed my neck; he was desperate for companionship.
I felt a tear down his check and raised a paw to assure him that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and his smile was so bright that
I instantly jumped into his arms.
With Gods blessings I promise to keep him safe;
to always be by his side,
and to do everything to protect him...
I will work very hard to make the grade!
I was so fortunate he came down my corridor.
So many more to be saved! At least I could save one!
I rescued a human today!
God put wonderful things inside of us all ...and we need to let them out.
