Some you know will find homes easily; others you know will be with you for a while. In rescue, you take them all in, believing in the animals and hoping for a loving home of their own for each one.
Lil Bit is a cute little thing, active and engaging. Her people dumped her in the park, probably because of weakness in her hind legs that interferes with house training and causes momentary collapse when she plays hard or gets too excited. The medical term is myasthenia gravis, a neuromuscular disorder. We did all we could for her medically and worked on socializing her to dogs, cats and people to ready her for the day that special adopter came along. We knew it might take a miracle to find the person who could look beyond Lil Bit’s differences to see the charming dog we know. She settled into the rescue’s routine and made friends with the other residents, adding her distinctive little bark to the daily chorus.
Like all miracles, this one came when least expected, and we are so very grateful. We’re hoping for just one more: sufficient donations to get us through this slow time when the needs of Silver Rescue’s dogs and cats continue even as the holidays swirl around them.
Don’t forget that we are a 501©3 charitable organization, so donations big and small are tax deductible. Why not finish out 2013 with a gift for the animals!
