      @desertskybulldogs, Oh you went and did it to me again!! I just watched again and the tears are flowing down my face, first at the site of poor Frankie in the beginning and then how happy he is now. Frankie touched a big piece of my heart, not that they all don't destroy me when I see the abuse. But for some reason my heart really broke extra hard over poor Frankie. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful success story. I Frankie!!

      Same here. Sometimes a rescue story, the ones on here and the rescue sites, can be such a hard read because it's so heartbreaking, that I just forward to the end and look for the happy ending.

      The more involved you get in rescue, the more you dislike people .........

  • I Rescued A Human Today

    by Janine Allen

    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 overworked 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.
