  1. What a blessing to these animals to have a place with loving, caring people. My husband and I adopted a dog that had been left in a backyard to starve in the summertime about 6 years ago. A pitiful lab mix, she was scared of everything and had heartworms. Maddie is MY keeper now. Loving and loyal. Ican’t do without her!!!

  2. Loved the story about Red. So glad he has a good home. It never amazes me how mean some people can be, and also how kind others can be. God bless all of you who helped Red!
