Thumbs up Thanks to our Rescue Angels

I felt I needed to stop in here and say thank you to all who rescue/adopt and foster our beloved K-9 friends. My goal/bucket list is to help many 4 legged friends when my retirement rolls around.

I saw a forum member today jealous1 when taking Tuff for his laser therapy. Terry is such a joy to speak with and her dedication to helping critters is admirable to say the least.

God bless all of you who are helping out.

My Buddy TuffDog.

Alan, what a nice post. I think Finn and I rescued each other, him from horrid owners who abused him, and me from the heartbreak of missing my heart dog Cody.

Golden retrievers think life is a party thrown especially for them

Both Calvin and Skyler are rescues..........they've done as much for me, as me for them. When I transport for rescues, it makes me feek like I mad a difference. With 4 here, I cannot foster as I know my limits! I only help because it makes me feel good!

I will be eternally thankful to those in rescue who made it possible for my rescued dogs, Charlie and Joseph, to come to me. They are amazing dogs and if not for their Angels who saw their dire need (they were shelter dogs on death row) and stepped in to help them out - I would not have the priviledge of their love, companionship and devotion. Also a huge thank you to another angel, the trainer who gave us, the guidance, support and encouragement that enabled us to understand, help, and keep our rescued reactive dog Joseph- he was such a mess. They have both come a long ways, and are so worth the time, effort and commitment to make their lives better, and mine... amazing.
Bless all their hearts for caring and trying to make a difference.

I've never met Jealous1 (Terry), in person, but from years of emailing rescues to try to find rescues for dogs in High Kill Shelters, I know how dedicated and wonderful Terry is! She has saved so many.

I am eternally grateful to Golden Retriever Rescue, because without them I wouldn't have been able to adopt my Smooch, the sweetest female Golden Retriever in the world! Smooch was a stray on the streets of Chicago and we adopted her at 16 months old-her name was Bedlam.

Without this forum's Golden Retriever Rescue Cases thread, I would never haver found my wonderul boy Tucker, who I adopted from someone on this forum!

Alan & Karen - Thank you, but I couldn't do it alone. There are so many wonderful people out there who make it all happen--the fosters, the transporters, the cross-posters, the person who gives $5 to help a dog get vetted, the person who gives up some time to help fundraise . . . I could go on and on. No one person can do it alone. This year when you are considering your Christmas list, please don't forget your local shelter or rescue, whether financially or with a donation of dog food, blankets & towels, treats, collars, leashes--give them a call to find out what they need. You will learn what I have learned--the reward I get back when getting an update on one I have been able to help is priceless!
