You Can Make A Difference

nannie bred dog

A breeder was auctioning off his Golden Retriever breeding stock because he was going to concentrate on smaller breeds.  He said they “take up less space.”  One of the dogs he wanted to get rid of (sell) was Nannie.  She was born in January of 2003.  She has been bred constantly since she was a pup.  Nannie had a significant (3+) heart murmur.  When we spayed her, we also removed an ovarian cyst the size of a fist.  She was very overweight because of lack of exercise and bad nutrition.  We had to pull eight of her teeth that were rotten because of the poor quality of food that she was fed.  Her skin was terrible from a combination of bad food, thyroid problems, and very poor hygiene. We have had many stories like Nannie’s for the dogs that come through our doors.  There is more to helping than with cash donations, you can help with your time and your heart. YOU can make a difference in this world, you just have to choose where to start.  Someone like Nannie, is waiting for just that “somebody”.
Is it you?
