A beloved pet can never be replaced. Giving the gift of life; through rescue adoption of a lost soul that may have been abused, lost, thrown away, or tragically given up due to the tough economy; is the greatest tribute we can give to the pets that we have lost.
And through this selfless act of love, many unexpectedly find that it is the only thing that will heal a broken heart.
There is an old saying, "The dog you rescue will rescue you". A rescued dog will absorb your tears of grief and lick your face with love!
I Rescued a Human Today
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.
Now that I'm home, bathed, settled, and fed,
All nicely tucked into my warm new bed.
I would like to open my baggage Lest I forget,
There is so much to carry - So much to regret.
Hmm... Yes there it is, right on the top -
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave -
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.
Will you add to my baggage? Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things and take me right back?
Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage, To never re-pack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage - Will you still want me?
