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

To the dogs never given a fair chance….

I’ve never really been good at saying goodbye, it has always been extremely hard for me. Even for the loving pets that I have lost through the years, it was hard for me to let them go, but I was brought joy by all the beautiful memories that they left me… and that helped me through it… I’m not sure what your name is, where your from, or your story, but I imagine you to be a humble and beautiful spirit. I can see you running wild and free, using that little wet nose to sniff out everything! I imagine a wiggly tail showing how excited you are about life, I imagine you placing your furry head on someone’s lap in their time of need, or kissing their tears away. You are a true essence of a friend, and the true purity of love. I’m saddened that you weren’t given the chance to share this with someone. I’m sorry that others may have overlooked it, but I promise that even though I’ve never met you, I’ll always remember you. Your life meant something. So to the dog that was never given a fair chance, this is my loving goodbye.

A Happy Ending

Sammy…. Bait dog rescued healed by LOVE

by David Hendrickson

This story is a little different then the normal tributes we do for animals. This is one story that ends with a happy ending. This is the story about how a abused, tortured, destroyed bait dog changed my life….His name is Sammy.For those of you who dont know Sammy was a dog I found a few months ago. He was used as a bait dog in Pomona CA. Bait dogs are animals used literally as “bait” for dog fighting rings. They are continually attacked, broken, and tortured every day. When I rescued him off the streets he was completely destroyed. Cover from head to tail in cuts, gaping wounds, bite marks all over and his nose had been broken over and over. His nose was so badly broken it will never look “normal” again. Even that night when I rescued him, through his pain, he still was the sweetest guy ever. He had been like this for quit a while and his wounds were covered in dirt and puss. I took him right into my bathroom and picked him up in my arms and gently cleaned his injuries. I cried because I just could not understand how anyone could do this to animals. Even tho he was clearly in a lot of pain and with blood washing down the shower drain…. he sat there and licked my tears away. He is a true hero. 

That night I held him like a baby. A 60 pound destroyed bait dog pit bull laid in my arms like a newborn and I cuddled him the whole night. He slept so well… as if it was the first time in a very long time he was able to sleep un-afraid and finally loved. Well now a few months later I received an email from his new family the Blaylocks showing me his home and his happy smiles! I am still crying with tears of joy as I write this because seeing Sammy finally with the love he deserves means everything to us at Hendrick Boards. He taught us all just how strong animals are and is yet another reminder of why we fight every single day to save animals just like him. Tonight I will sleep happy holding my rescue dog William knowing our buddy Sammy is loved. I love you Sammy and we will fight every day to save animals just like you. Just shows the power of LOVE!Much Love,
David Hendrickson

SAVE Piggy

SAVE Piggy

  • signatures: 2,605
  • signature goal: 3,000

Please SIGN to help SAVE Piggy from an unjust termination.

Piggy is a lovable, eternal puppy that is loved by all…although currently not loved by Riverside Humane officers, her nieghbors, or the jogger that she scared. Piggy has been impounded for scaring a jogger, she did not maul anyone or anything. Her love of the outside world found her on her second offense for escaping the family yard, which is a 1/2 acre, fenced in, secure doggy playground. So that is what happened…now what can be done. Please share her story. Piggy and family will learn her fate, which yesterday (7/19) it has been determined, it is strongly recommended by the courts and the family neighbor, that she be “destroyed”. This will happen in now 5 days of her 14 day hold.

Piggy is a Pit Bull. What does that statement mean to you? Well to her family, she is a laughable, eternal puppy, loved by all who meet her, two or four legged. She is surrounded by people pets, and children all the time, because if you knew her family, there is always a reason to celebrate at their house. Piggy’s #1 fan, besides her mama, is her 2 year old human niece, Stella. Yesterday, during the hearing, the cries of Stella were heard, while wearing a “Free Piggy” tee-shirt of “PIGGY OUT”, “GrAnnie, PIGGY OUT”!

There are families who are not responsible with their pets…this is not the case. Just recently the world was brought to their knees with the case of Lennox, the N. Irelend Pit Mix that was impounded for 2 yrs for measuring to be of a “Pit Bull” type dog, not for any action of his. After the worlds cries to release him…he was “destroyed”. Yet less then 2 weeks later a very similar story is being played out in the US.

Please help us release Piggy back to her loving family. We truly believe that Piggy can be saved. Share this group, send information, or just PRAY! Share your stories and photos in support of Piggy, the family pet.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Piggy’s loving family and friends
