star I Rescued A Human Today

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 wouldn’t be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today.

Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's 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 haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today.

Forget holding them back!! My tears are FLOWING! That was so precious!! If I had the money/space I would adopt every single animal from the shelter!! I like kitties, but I developed an allergy after my cat of 13 years passed so it's definitely dogs for me!! Adopt a pet today!!!

This makes me want to cry. I too was rescued by a kennel dog. She is the best little doggie ever. I always say to anyone looking for a pet to adopt from a shelter. Please! These are perfectly good pets just waiting for a home. My Maggie is my little sweet baby and I can't even stand to think of the day that she isn't with me anymore. Everyone should be rescued by a little fur ball with a wet nose!

That is so, so beautiful!

I'll show my sister in law that one later She'll love it too

My two cats were saved too. My husband adopted the eldest (or, the cat adopted him - I forget), who was covered in fleas, skinny and out in the cold. The second cat, my husband found that was living in a skip in a builders yard. Again, she was skinny, frightened of everything, had a hurina (sp??), and needed us. They are now both pampered house cats that even get stockings at christmas lol.

Similar stories for my sister in law. Only she has adopted 3 cats

Our lab we got as a pup from a reputable breeder.
Our two cats we found at our vets. Strays are always being dropped off there and he is always taking them in and finding loving homes for them. We had a kitten we had gotten from a local shelter. Five days after, she took gravely ill, our vet said there was no hope and we needed to have her put down. We were devastated! Shortly after our vet phoned us and said they had a momma cat for us. She was only one, she had already had kittens, been fixed then taken to a new home. Only to be returned when that family's cat would not accept her. Were we interested?
We went and saw her. Only one problem in the very next kennel were kittens looking for homes. So yes, we became the proud new family to one grown cat and one kitten. Gilbert is now 6 and Simba is 5. Yep, both are female and were named by our DS and oldest DD, who happened to be 3 and 1 at the time. We adore them. They sleep each night with our two daughters.
