Groups Benefiting from Long Leash On Life Winter Pet
Food Drive 2015:
Animal Humane coordinates the
distribution of 3,000 lbs. of donated pet food weekly through
their completely volunteer-run Pet Food Bank. The food is shared
with rescue groups statewide, pet owners who cannot afford to feed
their cats or dogs and homebound senior citizens through the
Albuquerque Department of Senior Affairs meal delivery program. The
latter program ensures that seniors can provide nutritional meals to
their companion pets at no additional cost to their food budget. This
service provides emergency assistance to families experiencing hardship
in order to ensure that fewer pets are surrendered.
More events coming soon
are scheduled throughout the
year.Please call for upcoming dates & times.
We are committed to helping local rescue organizations and shelters to find homes for dogs and cats.
I Rescued A
I rescued a
Her eyes met
mine as she walked down the
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 overworked 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 someone's life.
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.
