I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the
corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly
and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she
wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had
in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked
today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to
think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past.
I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my
shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck.
She was desperate for companionship.
A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would
be well. Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I
instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would
promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could
to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that
she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked
the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.
