Changing Lives … One Tail at a Time …


Sweet Maggie, the cutest 11/2 – 2 year old Papillon/Corgi mix, soft, fluffy and yummy, was brought to the Shelter as a stray, though it seemed that it was her owner surrendering her. We pulled her from a high kill shelter in N. Carolina and she was placed in foster care. Then, someone who had lost her own dog, and who thought she wasn’t ready to adopt yet, saw Maggie on our website. She fell in love and came to meet her. It was an instant connection. She said, “I never knew how I could love another dog after losing my own, but now I see…”

A few days later she wrote, “…I want to thank you…for finding, rescuing and caring for Maggie/Honey (her new name). She is a fabulous dog; we have bonded, and I think she is adjusting to the city just fine. She is walking better on the leash each day, and responding to her name…Thanks again.”

We always say…the greatest gift you can give to the memory of your beloved dog who has passed, is to save another. And so, we genuinely thank Maggie/Honey’s new Mom for opening her heart again and giving her a new chance.
