This wonderful photo was taken by RCACP volunteers Teresa and Madeline.
Every Saturday, dedicated volunteers show up at the Roanoke pound to photograph the homeless animals and bring their stories to light, in an outstanding effort to save their lives. It's working; the number of animals walking out of the pound alive has increased tremendously since the volunteer program started.
Not that it's up to us, but we would title this photo 'Shielded". Little does this precious dog named Sheena know, that while Madeline is physically protecting her the high winds, she is more so saving her from becoming a dismal statistic.
A special thank you to all the RCACP volunteers. It's not easy seeing animals who are in jeopardy of losing their lives. Thank you for walking them, for buying toys for them, for transporting them to safety, for networking them, for photographing them. More than anything, we thank you for showing the world how wonderful they are.
