Everywhere - Children dream of stockings packed with goodies and big boxes filled with the latest and greatest toys. A homeless dog dreams of one thing - being loved.
That sentiment is what drives animal rescuers to find homes for the thousands of shelter pets across the nation. We want simply and beautifully, the obvious - what every dog lover knows in their heart, to end the suffering and homeless of dogs throughout the US. Dogs want to be loved. They want to be scratched behind the ears, taken for walks, or sitting by the side of the person that they love.
Every dog sitting behind the bars of a kennel door wants the very same thing - the simple pleasure and comfort of being loved. This holiday season, consider donating to your local shelter or rescue.
Tis' the season of giving. Don't forget those less fortunate this time of year; Especially our furry friends.
My name is Melanie Samet, and I am an avid lover of all things animal. I have worked with several animal rescue groups over the years, but started my own rescue, called Mutts Matter Rescue, in 2010. Helping animals is my calling in life. I am married to my wonderful husband Brian, and we live with our three beautiful, furry babies named Ferbie, Shiloh and Barney (not including any foster dogs passing through on their way to their forever home).
I felt that a blog would be a great way to talk about anything related to my life involving rescue, my dogs, or just anything that may move me that day. Sometimes it may just be a photo or story that inspired me in some way. Some days I may have to vent and shed light on some animal related issues that are bothering me.
Either way, it's all about the animals. Clearly my life has gone to the dogs....
I would like to dedicate my blog in memory of all my animal friends who have lost their battle for life. This is for you...May you rest in peace.
