With Gratitude...

As the seasons are changing and I take a moment to reflect over the year that is quickly passing, I'm so very grateful...
For good friends, new friends, animal lovers, artists who give so lovingly of their time and talents, fellow rescuers and those of you that read my blog.
The kind notes, donations, stories of beloved pets and all the good energy that has been sent my way, keep me doing what I'm doing. I know I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't think you can say Thank you or appreciate others too much..

Lately I've been doing a more than usual, so much so, I've lost 12 pounds this last month without really trying:)
I haven't posted much lately do to the overwhelming number of animals we have taken in.
I think this next transport will be the biggest one yet. I couldn't do it without the constant support, so THANK YOU ALL for making these trips possible. Costly as they are, it saves lives and that is priceless..

Please know that even though, I don't post as often as I should and am constantly behind, my thoughts are with all of you.. It's tough being a one person rescue, but I'm working on that and will be merging my rescue with another, so that I have help and vice, versa. These past few years have had a learning curve, learning what my limits are, the hardships of running a rescue, time management and the financial challenges. With dreams and doing things that make a difference, we learn, hard as things can be at times, we have to start somewhere and with time our dreams can come true...
This I believe and the past years have shown true. It all starts with intention.

The puppy mill dogs are finally in the last stages of criminal case and will be going to new homes soon.
I've taken part in helping to care for them, while they were being warehoused during the court proceedings.
Their little eyes grab at your soul and you're heart is never quite the same again..
This is a local update and at the bottom is film footage.
If you watch closely, you'll see a quick cameo of me applying for one of the dogs. The little one that stole my heart and that I was applying for, when they were filming is a geriatric Chihuahua named Daisy. She stole my heart..
Tiny, old, all teeth gone and just needing a soft place to lay & someone to pamper her..
If I get her, she'll be my little muse, spending her time with me in my art studio.

The Humane Society of The United States & Nashville Humane has played such a big part in helping these animals.
The teams of vets that came from all parts of the country to fix the hundreds of animals are part of the HSUS team.
I'm proud to recommend both organizations if you are looking to donate to good causes.
