  • I volunteer with a dog rescue group. Done it for about 10 years now. It's an underground world (that I hope to enlighten you about). A world of unwanted dogs, abandoned and abused dogs, shelters, pet stores, and breeders. More importantly, it's about the volunteers who give them each a chance to love and be loved. To be the best and happiest dog they can. So the stories I wish to share may contain heartbreak, while at the same time they are intended to be one of hope.

    I've often been thankful, that the many dogs I've fostered couldn't speak and tell their stories. I knew many of their stories would be so painful.

    I've fostered many. They each got a new name, a new life, and later, a new forever home. In sharing, I hope to give a voice to those with none. It's rather simple to me, if you don't know, then how can you care?

    So now you shall know. The ugly, heartbreaking and amazing stories about the dogs who need help, and those who help them. My heart's desire is that the stories will enlighten and inspire you to care. That in knowing you can act.

    I'll add stories and give voice to some of the precious dogs I've know. in the hopes that your heart will be touched.

    So the picture provided is one of Charlene. She's an elder girl.
    Found in a box with other small dogs next to a highway in Charlotte. A rescue volunteer was able to pull her from the local shelter before she was put down. I was asked to foster her.
    Her story will be the first and continued......
