New Page Added to the Website: Senior Rescue

A Good Reason Not to Drop Your Animal at the Shelter

He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; […]
