Special Cases: All the rescues matter

Published 8:00 am Friday, August 10, 2018

In the past few weeks, I’ve been dealing with rescuers from my rescue rally, and today I wish to follow that trend.   

I’ve had a few individual cases that I may or may not speak of in the future. Most of the rescues I deal with are self-sufficient these days, but I was there in their beginnings and I’m glad to be there for their kids when needed.

In the past few weeks, we’ve helped tell Krudo’s story for Foothills Humane Society and are helping with Dali at Pet Tender Angels. I’m in constant contact with P3 and Forever Dream Sanctuary.

Today, we will speak of Service Dogs for Veterans, which was the SAP program when they first began.

The Bulletin has been kind enough to post some of the photos of our warriors and their new service dogs.

A $1,000 check will be sent from Lennie’s kids.  Please keep both our heroes in your prayers, the dogs and their vets.

Thanks for listening.
