WE STILL NEED YOU.
In times like these, when there is devastating loss and terrifying uncertainty, when there is so much need—for medical supplies, school supplies, food, a safe place to stay—helping out an old dog may not seem to be much of a priority. And yet the animals in shelters and rescues are among the most needy, since they depend completely on what humans do. They cannot speak for themselves; they cannot seek medical care on their own; they cannot provide their own food; they may not be safe even in a shelter, since the overwhelming problem of animal overpopulation forces many shelters to euthanize for space. They depend on you, as do the rescuers who continue to work hard to save them.
So if you have a little spare change, a little time, some compassion to share, share it with an old dog. Donate to your local shelters or rescues, foster or volunteer. If you can consider adoption, take time to look at the seniors; those old eyes hold a great deal of wisdom, and those experienced hearts are grateful for a kind word, a soft bed, a treat or a pat on the head. You can change the world for a dog.

This post is in memory of Billy Stovall, our much-loved friend and volunteer, who passed away on July 30. As he worked with our rescued animals, all of us benefitted from his insight, his empathy and his remarkable talent as a photographer. As we join his family in mourning his loss, we also celebrate the legacy of compassion and kindness that he left with us. These photographs, all his, are some of our favorites, and we want to share them with you. ...
