Just Because…

Here’s a great piece sent to us by Montreal Dog Blog reader Laurie Ann Simmonds.  She asked us to share.  And how could we not?  You may have read this before, but we figured with all of our adoption posts lately, it’s a nice reminder. To those of you who work tirelessly in animal rescue, those of you who have ever adopted a pet and anyone who has ever known the joy that a companion animal brings  – enjoy:

I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY

by Janine Allen

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.  I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.  I wagged my tail, but not too exuberantly, so she wouldn’t be afraid.

As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.  I didn’t want her to know that I hadn’t been walked today.  Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn’t want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn’t feel sad about my past.  I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.  I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.  Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.  Soon my kennel door opened, and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.  I would promise to keep her safe.  I would promise to always be by her side.  I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.  I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.

So many more are out there who haven’t walked the corridors. So many more to be saved.

At least, I was able to save one.

I rescued a human today.
