An Angel Has Lit ~ by Deanna

On Wednesday, we traveled to San Francisco for two huge reasons.

First, we received a third incredibly generous donation of dog food from Freshpet. This is an extremely high quality product and our dogs all love it. It is made from human quality ingredients, just like when we cook here for them, and is sold in the refrigerated section. I urge you to try their product. Locally, it can be purchased at Raley's. Incredibly, the warehouse is quite close to Linda's house (Wonder Dog Rescue), which is perfect, because;

Second, we welcomed home a grateful and loving older girl appropriately dubbed "Angel" by the dedicated members of Wonder Dog who fostered and cared for her since her release from the Martinez shelter on Saturday, July 11. Visit their site for additional information here.
Linda shared that Angel was one of the worst cases of neglect she'd ever witnessed and as her website details, Angel preferred to drink urine and dug frantically in the dirt for worms to eat. Heartbreaking.Angel seems to be completely contented here and is fascinated by the bunnies and chickens. She fit into the pack perfectly and is always ready for a cookie or a tummy rub. She smiles. She sleeps with me. She seems to be quickly returning vibrancy and we are so thrilled to be a part of her healing journey.Whatever she had been through may have broken her body down, but her BT spirit is completely in tact.

I look forward to posting photos soon revealing a body reflecting the radiance of her spirit. The food here is good and she is getting plenty of it now.Loving up kids like Angel is absolutely the best part about what we do here. I love her so much already!

Hi Deanna -

Thanks for the update on Angel. She looks very relaxed and contented and I know she will improve every day. She is a remarkable dog with a loving and unbreakable spirit. Thank you for giving her such a great home.

It's so lovely and heartwarming to see the work of people in organizations like yours. I've been in animal welfare for years--I know it's not really considered work--but love that keeps you doing what you do. Angel is truly blessed to have at last found a home to comfortably live out the rest of her years. I'm sure she'll finally know the peace that has been absent for so long. Thank you all for what you do.
