I’ve Created a New Blog-please check it out if you love animals or even just like them

About my new blog;

I created this blog to help save, heal, rescue and find forever homes for animals. I will post news stories that will ask readers to take action if they feel so inclined. I will post pictures of animals up for adoption. I will do my best to make sure the sites, organizations, rescues & shelters are legitimate and sincerely committed to the life and love of these animals. I would love to hear from readers that would also like to help save animals.

This is the second blog I’ve created. My first, Dipsintheroad.wordpress.com dips in the road  has been fun, an inspiration and evolution of my soul. It has been and continues to be a  journey that brings me back to my true self.  The love and concern I have for animals deserves a space of its own. 

 
 So I welcome my fellow animal lovers, activists and rescuers. The inspiration for this site comes from my own rescue pup Gracie, who with the love of others, escaped a high kill shelter in Arkansas.  She is my friend and soulmate. I am inspired by ://www.luckypuprescue.org  who brought Gracie to Maine. I am inspired by the thousands of people around the globe that are working, not giving up, to protect and save animals.  I am immensely inspired by David Hendrickson and his brothers at Hendrick Boards and A Loving Goodbye.
In Gratitude,
Jen Donahue

Emmylou Harris Turns Nashville Estate into Animal Shelter

Emmylou Harris is the “Queen of Country.” She has been topping the charts with incredible award-winning music for almost 4 decades. Now she is doing more than rocking the country world. She has become a rock star for animals in need.

The country singer has turned her Nashville estate into a shelter for unwanted pets. She decided to rescue and adopt multiple animals after rescuing her dog hours before he was to be euthanized. Harris decided to “make it her mission to save animals facing the same fate.” So she created Bonaparte’s Retreat and turned part of her home into a shelter.

There are 29 dogs in the program on her estate currently. Ten of which live happily in her backyard. A website has been set up for the organization which describes each of the adoptable pets at the retreat and approximately how old they are.

The mission of Bonaparte’s Retreat reads: “Bonaparte’s Retreat is dedicated to providing nurturing foster care for shelter dogs when their allotted time at the shelter has elapsed. Our mission is to prevent these wonderful animals from being euthanized and to place them in permanent, loving homes.”

Harris isn’t stopping at just a retreat on her estate for animals in need. She is continuing her pet projects by working on “Crossroads Campus”, a project that will pair animals in need with people and also provide financial and emotional support.

A Loving Goodbye

  1. He was extremely scared and did not trust me at first. That is until I showed him the ball I was holding in my hand….BAMB I had a new best friend…
    …After he received his shot to be euthanized by the staff I held him as close as I could to my face. I told him he was going to a place where he would play ball all day and all night…. I told him I loved him with every piece of my heart. He took his last breath.
