When I first met Connick it was 100°. He was trapped in a rusted cage in a dilapidated “sanctuary”. His food was moldy, flies infested his open sores and he was too weak to stand.
He was dying. I wanted so incredibly bad for him to know love -just once I wanted him to feel something more than the concrete burning his sores. I arranged for him to come to Detroit Dog Rescue fully understanding that he didn’t have much time. Here he was loved, he gained some strength back, his sores closed and his heart filled.
Dogs are born knowing how to unconditionally love, that’s why they never get to stay as long as us. Sadly, Connick passed away, but the memories he made and the helping hands he experienced was the last thing he knew- not the nightmare he came from.
Rescue is rescue, whether it’s fifteen years or five days, I want dogs to experience the love they so freely give us. Sadly our Forever Foster hospice program is the most under-funded program at Detroit Dog Rescue. Please help me give more dogs a chance by making a tax-deductible donation by clicking here.
