My name is Lilly. I'm going to be 9 years old. For my birthday I hope I can raise money to help protect & care for all the homeless and abused animals in Maryland. I grew up with a great rescue dog, Marley she loved me & protected my sister & I. She had scars from where someone had stabbed her, but she loved & trusted us. We lost her to cancer two years ago & she's in heaven now, my moms heart was broken. We knew we had to rescue again, and we did! Now we have Macy, she has scars too, someone burned her. She is simply the most loving and sweet dog. I share these stories so you can know that rescue animals are not broken...they are grateful, loyal, & fabulous! Please give one these animals a home if and when you can. If not, just help make my birthday fantastic & their lives better by giving what you can. Thank you so much!
