The Why of the Holiday Season

No matter if you Celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus  or just enjoy the time with your family, I wanted to take a moment to wish you all peace, blessings and happiness. 

Rescue is hard (whips my butt regularly) but because of all of you we have been able to make a difference in the lives of so many pups and humans.   Yesterday we got an update from an adopter who adopted over 6 years ago. 

Sweet Gypsy  was a senior in 2015  when she came to us suffering from a chronic skin condition, underweight and a mess. Her foster family worked so hard to get her healthy and she was adopted by an amazing family. 

Yesterday, like some of you I was done with the holidays... foster puppy, family, last minute shopping... as a matter of fact I was in the pharmacy line at Costco.. so yeah .....more bah humbug then ho ho ho...... and I get a text.......It was a picture from Gypsy's FURever home thriving in her senior years, all snuggled up in a new blanket she got for Christmas. 

So this Holiday Season I thank all of you for what you do, and wish you all the warmth  of sweet Gypsy wrapped in her new Christmas Blanket in a loving FURever home. 

With gratitude, 
Kim, The Emperor and our foster Tater Tot.
