As I was looking for places to donate unused stuff I saw that there are less than a dozen dogs at the Humane Society (which often houses a hundred), indicating that there are more people willing to bring a furry friend into their lives. That have my heart a genuine boost. They're all good dogs and deserve a good home.
A co-worker recently fostered a dog and ended-up keeping him. She recently was in touch with the people that she got Jack (the dog) from and they never told her this before, they sent her a piccy of Jack when the shelter first got him and his neck was raw because Jack's neck had grown around the rope that he was tied to and they had to cut the rope out.
The coworker showed the shelter all of the loot that Jack got for Christmas and that's when they showed her that piccy. They were happy that Jack is being well taken care of.
