The people that saved Fresno should be nominated. That's about as good as it gets for a rescue story.

just want to bump this up again. This is a great opportunity for us to take a chance and nominate our Rescues. Humm...I wonder if I can make this part of my signature so everyone who sees my posts on the Urgent boards will see it????

My recommendation for a hero: but I don't have Joanne's full name to do so...

Originally posted by spiritsmam:
I am the ultimate foster failure. Of all the dogs I have ever take in (all rescues from shelters or slated for euthanasia for other reasons) I have only ever had one leave me, for what turned out to be a perfect forever home.

I have 5 rescues in my house at the moment. All came with baggage, some adopted within hours of being euthanised. Do I have a perfectly behaved household - err nope - they all bark at strangers going past the house, training takes a long time, and my king size bed is considered fair game. Is it worth it - oh yes, I would never consider getting a puppy from a breeder, give me a "reject" any day - no dog is beyond hope.

I may not be able to change the world, but hope that I can make a difference in the lives of the few individuals I am honoured to share my life with.

I believe it is ShannonT who pulled Ruthie and Grace. Definite nomination there!!

There are so many others here who on a daily basis step up for the dogs.

I remember Ruthie and Grace- what a sad story and pictures when I first seen them. I was new here at that time, and was in shock by what I seen.

I'm waiting for approval from somebody so I can submit her.

If I get the OK I'd like to solicit help in writing her 250 word nomination statement. Anybody be willing to help with that??
