Our Mission: Being the Voice for the Voiceless
Did you know that homeless animals outnumber homeless people 5 to 1? According to the U.S. humane society, there are roughly 70 million stray cats and dogs living in the U.S. and only six to eight million of these animals find their way into shelters each year. For the dogs that survive long enough to make it into a shelter, one HALF will be euthanized each year. Have you ever walked into a shelter and looked into the eyes of one of these poor souls? Don’t you wish they could speak to us like in the movie, “A dog’s purpose?” What would they say? Here are some of their stories:
“My owner left me in a trailer park after a fire burned our house down. I was on my own for 4 months while people either threw food (if I was lucky) or stones at me. It may take a lot of time for me to trust any human, but once I do, our bond would be unbreakable.”
Eddie- 2 yr. old poodle maltese mix, 9 lbs.
“I was tossed into a dumpster because I had mange and lost all of my fur; I heard I was unsellable. I may not be the prettiest now, but that wouldn’t stop me from loving you more than anything or anybody in the entire world.”
Georgia- 4-month old chihuahua, 1.2 lbs.
“My owner never vaccinated me so all of my babies died of parvo and I was really sick and depressed for a long time. I know I was born with a purpose; to love somebody more than I love myself. If you truly want to know what unconditional love is, adopt me.”
Charlene- 7 yr. old pug mix, 10 lbs.
