Our newest edition to the family--Ziggy! Ever since our beloved Pit, Tyson, died a few weeks ago, I have been on a mission in his honor. I've dedicated myself to research local [open admission shelter] Pitties to post awareness and cross-posting "urgent" rescues from other volunteers. Twist was due to be put to sleep on Tuesday, 9/21, and 11:00 pm on Monday 9/20...there were no responses. My hubby, meanwhile, was behind my back, emailing the shelter to rescue her. That Tuesday morning I was still hopeful through the tears when my hubby told me he had spoken with the shelter! Although the tears came on harder, they were tears of happiness! We were five-and-a-half hours away from the shelter, so we drove halfway to meet volunteers from Evansville Vanderburgh Animal Care and Control to save this sweetie from being put to sleep. It just so happened to be our three year wedding anniversary that next day and it was the best gift we could have given each other! We have now inspired several friends to also rescue! Keep it going...IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE! "We can not change the world by saving one dog....... but we can change the world for that one dog." This is Ziggy (aka Twist) with our four-year-old Bichon, Trixie.
