I just watched a youtube video about a pit bull in a California kill shelter. As I sat there and watched this poor dog with his head hanging down, his right eye puffed closed, his left eye puffy and oozing, dermatotic mange, red and raw in areas, a Cocker Rescue woman noticed him and her heart melted. Through her network of friends, their friends and her rescue knowledge, she was able to find a Vet that would donate his time and talent to treat his mange and neuter him, people to donate food, supplies, and money for his recovery. They were able to find a Pit Rescue in Canada that would foster him in their home, socialize him, introduce him to other dogs, love him and let him blossom, and they got enough donations to be able to pay for his flight there. He went from a sick, scared, broken dog, that had no reason to wag his tail and days away from being euthanized to a happy, healthy, much loved dog who found his forever home with a pal to run around the yard with, tail wagging non-stop.
This story is much, much longer, and if you would like to see it yourself, the link is at the end.
It's a story to make you cry and it's a story to make you smile, it's a story that will make you want to help and it's a story that confirms the fact that there are a whole bunch of wonderful people out there.
I am so grateful for these loving, caring people. People who donate their time, talents, money to help Just One Dog. Without them, the world would be a sad place.
I would like to live the rest of my life as one of these wonderful people. If I can just start out small, do one thing at a time, donate to the Humane Society the price of just one grande, skim, pumpkin spice latte a week...well, that would help a lot.
So I say Thank You to all the anonymous, giving, caring, loving people in the world. They were able to save Just One Dog and his name is Stanley http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fblip.tv%2Fcamp-cocker%2Fjust-one-dog-3033717&h=zAQFZmNfQ
