Heroes- Part 2

Karen is an Angels of Assisi volunteer who burst onto the scene last spring. She came on full force from day one, helping whenever we needed her, and always showing up at opportune times loaded with supplies.

A few weeks ago, she assisted with a stray that was found in her neighborhood. The dog went to the Roanoke pound, and Karen was diligent in keeping an eye on her, and was thrilled when the owner came to claim his dog.

However, the happiness did not last long, when the same owner turned her back into the pound a few days later.

At 13 years old, this was no place for a senior dog to be. Luckily, she had a hero in her corner, named Karen, who is picking her up from the pound as this is being written.

Another hero, named Melissa, will be fostering Gabby through Angels of Assisi. We can't wait to get a better photo, but for now, this one will do.

You get the point- cataract clouded eyes, a confused heart. And now network of heroes to see her through her last chapter on this earth.

Did Gabby end up at the pound because of the irresponsible public? We don't know the circumstances, but probably.

Is she being saved by a network of responsible volunteers? Absolutely. Karen, Melissa, Chaz, and Jill... awesome job. Gabby has a bright future, and along the way new friendships were made, the network of rescue grew stronger, and we've got some new heroes to appreciate. And you know we do.

A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help. A hero to me is someone who really deeply cares.
