I opened my eyes this morning and waited for someone to call my new name. If I could just hear this I would be free from worry.  And then it happened, someone called "Rescue".  It is for real, a new name and a new start at life. I want to get up but I could not.  I tried over and over but I am just too weak. I needed to let them know I heard my name so I lifted my head.  Everyone around me looked very happy.  Now all I need is to hear that familiar voice who whispered to me just the night before.  And then she came and that voice made everything more real.  I am saved.  I need not worry anymore.  I trust my new friends.  They did what they said they would do, help me through this.  I feel a heartwarming relief that my new friends will not fail me as I have been failed in the past.  This is important to me for my healing because my emotional pain seems to be leaving me and that will give me more strength to conquer my physical pain.  I will forgive the humane who discarded me and begin my life with trusting people.  Thank you all for giving me the chance to trust again. I am told that I have badly injured my front left leg and I may loose it.  I also injured my front right shoulder but I must wait to see how bad it is.  As far as my back end, well, we just have to wait and see what happens.  It is way too early to tell.  I feel much better and have a positive attitude.  My spirits are good.  Without the help and prayers of you, I don't know if I would have opened my eyes this morning.  I realize now how important to my new friends it is for me to pull through.  I am trying very hard. Alex has been such a big part in my recovery.  She has gone over and beyond for me.  I want to soon get up and run over to all of you and feel you touch me.  I am looking forward to that day.  For now, I am tired and will need to go so I can get my rest.  My only wish for tonight is to wake up again and hear someone calling "Rescue".

"Today was a quiet day for me.  After looking out the window I am so glad that I am not wondering outside in this weather looking for food and shelter.  It makes me sad to think of all the others that are still out there waiting and praying to be saved.  There are so many humans that help us but more that discard us each day.  I once heard someone say that the soul would have no rainbow if the eye had no tear.  My tears are not able to be seen by you but for now my tears are shed for others like I was only a few days ago."

"I received a beautiful letter from someone today.  She read my story and responded to me with kind thought and comforting words.  If you get the chance, take a minute to read this.  I will read it one more time and then return to resting.  Again, I will be looking forward to tomorrow and my recovery so I can extend my never-ending loyalty to you for all you are doing for me."


Letter which Rescue received:

"You never met me and probably never will, yet I know so much about you.  It breaks my heart when I think of all the torture you had to go through and I thank God you finally found so many people who love and will take care of you.  Think of the voice that whispered in you ear, she is the one that brought you here, she is the one that will stand by your side, she won't give up, she never does, she's your angel sent from above.  This angel's name is Sharon, she saves so many, but never enough, the job she has is really tough.  She's not looking for someone to blame, she just wants you to live for her, she's the one that gave you your name.  You have a long road to go down, you won't go alone.  When you get better you'll have a brand new home.  So PLEASE wake up each day and fight to stay alive, so many people are praying for you  to survive.  Right  now all we can do is pray, pray for you to get strong enough so the vet can decide  what has to be done to make you better and keep you alive.  You have come this far, PLEASE don't give up, be brave, stay strong, this was so very wrong, lets make it right PLEASE RESCUE WIN THIS FIGHT."

Thank You to all the prayers and love everyone is sending for "Rescue". She is one of many, but at least she has a chance now, thanks to Animal Rescues such as Adopt-A-Pet. Please keep those prayers and happy thoughts coming. I will be posting updates as I receive them. Can you imagine her being out in the streets in this snow? She never would have made it after being hit by that car. The thought is just too much for me to bear.

Much Love to all of you! Woof Soon!

  10. What wonderful news, it is great to hear Rescue is feeling better.

    Cindi Lou wants you to know she understands what it's like to be discarded by someone you trusted. She understands living on the street and having to find food and stay warm. But most importantly she knows that you can learn to trust and love again. You can be safe and have a forever home.
    Get well soon Rescue.

    Thanks for the update Josie.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Judy and Cindi Lou
