I Rescued a Human Today!

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knewI had to help her.

I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.

As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelterKeepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make A difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head Up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed myNeck; she was desperate for companionship.

A tear fell down her Cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I Instantly jumped into her arms.

I would promise to keep her safe.

I Would promise to always be by her side.

I would promise to do Everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in herEyes.

I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So manyMore are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to Be saved. At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today.
