Special Friends In Need Of Homes

In the course of my travels, I have met some very exceptional friends in need of forever homes. I would like to introduce you to some of them on this page. Please consider taking them into your hearts and homes, and check back often for new additions.

A Rescued Dog's Wishes

(excerpts from a poem by Terri Onorato)

Rescue me not only with your hands, but with your heart as well.
I will respond to you.
Rescue me not out of pity, but out of love.
I will love you back.
Rescue me not with self-righteousness, but with compassion.
I will learn what you teach.
|Rescue me not because of my past, but because of my future.
I will relax and enjoy.
Rescue me not to simply save me, but to give me a new life.
I will appreciate your gift.
Rescue me not only because of who I am, but who I will become.
I will grow and mature.
Rescue me not to revere yourself to others, but because you want me.
I will never let you down.
Rescue me not with a hidden agenda, but with a desire to teach me to trust.
I will be loyal and true.
Rescue me not to be your pet, but to be your friend.
I will give you undying love.
