To all my friends, each of you know how much I love my own pets. I have fostered and done other voIunteer work for RPM because I want to see as many pets from area shelters find loving homes. RPM has helped so many dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, and asorted pets (even a sweet little pig) find forever homes in Colorado and other areas. People are waiting to adopt and love them always. It has been my privilage to help with puppies, moms and babies, a few large dogs and a number of small dogs during my association. RPM doesn't just take the easy adoptable animals but looks deeper at each fur baby as an individual. I have seen many animals with skin issues or missing a limb, old or other imperfections rescued, then thru the use of love and medical treatment, sent on to have wonderful homes. I had one such dog with a really bad case of sarcops (almost no fur and open sores) everytime I tried to pet him, he would curl into a fetal position but my little guys (Jack, Peanut, and Mason) were able to reach him and show him how to run and play. I would love to say I was able to bond with him but that didn't happen before he left on his big trip - I know the foster group on the other end worked with this poor little street dog until he was ready for a family and at the end of the day that is the best part of working with RPM, knowing that every animal we put on the bus has a furever home waiting at the end of their journey. Each time I put one of these special babies on the bus going to a wonderful future I cry a little because I will miss them but know they will be loved and cared for when they reach a new state and family.
I know many of you work for wonderful animal orginizations, rehabilitating and finding loving homes and that makes me feel a sense of community with each of you. Because of the wonderful work RPM does and my own personal experience with them, I am asking each of you for a small donation.
