The wheel keeps turning

Published 10:10am Friday, May 18, 2012

Last week I thanked all those who lovingly support my cause.  I’ve often  explained about the many cases my fund has handled that never get written about, but the animals and the people helped, know that’s truly what my funds are for.  Within the last two weeks we have helped Pokie, Pebbles, Roxie, Charlie and Angel and tomorrow after work, I will visit Faith and see what I can do.
Maggie, the beautiful 8-year-old Maine Coon cat, who had a stone removed, is in a loving home.
Angelique, the sweet Boxer, who reminded me of Allie, is adopted.
Sergeant, the sweet pit-pointer mix has been accepted into a rescue.
The amazing Coffee (too cute for words), lasted three days after her story and is being tearfully loved in her new home.
We are merely tools in the hands of our Creator and we can never stop the wheel from turning, but with His help, we can make it run more smoothly.
Thanks for listening.
