Quickly I opened the email and read the plea asking if there was any way I could take some time out of my day to go to the pound and rescue four little dogs that were going to be put down if I couldn't make it.
I got up early and picked up this little guy. He couldn't weigh more then 2 or 3 pounds.
Poor guy has an infection that is making him lose all his fur. He was so cold as all the dogs at the pound are in outside cages.
So thankfully this little one will get better and live a happy life.
This darling little one also had a skin condition that caused not only major itching but pain. His whole under side is a flaming red. You could just tell it had to hurt so bad.
But, now he is getting treatment and will have a nice warm bed to sleep in.
This little one had kennel cough. With meds and some extra love she will be as good as ever in no time.
It's so sad to see these loving animals being mistreated and dumped at the pound. There they have only a few days to find a home or be put to sleep.
Even though they have been neglected, abused, injured or are sick they still have so much love to share. They still want to trust you and have you love them.
I am so thankful for all the rescue places out there. They not only save the life by getting them out of the pound but they provide all medical treatment and will never put the animals down. They will either find a loving home for them to live at or they keep them.
So please, if you ever get a chance to adopt a dog, donate money or give some of your time to any rescue I hope you do. You will not only be helping to save a life but you will find your heart is over flowing with joy.
Merry Christmas to you all!
P.S. I think I didn't explain myself correctly. I did not keep these dogs. I only picked them up and drove them to Oceanside which is about an hour away from me. There is another wonderful lady, Rebecca, who is the one who finds the homes and gets them all the medical treatment.
I would love to be a place that could rescue dogs. However, I don't have the space and I don't think my two dogs would take kindly to having several other dogs around.
My part in the rescue is a tiny one. Yet I'm still pleased I can help out whenever possible.
