Dianne-THANK YOU for the update on Penny!!!
Many blessings to her and to those who pulled her from the shelter!

I've been going through a very rough time lately and crying a lot; the tears now running down my face are tears of JOY.

Thanks to your networking, the story made it to the good people at Leave No Paws Behind.

On Saturday afternoon, I received the following from Toby Wisneski, CEO and founder of the rescue agency:

Your article on Penny made it to our FB page and I was so taken with it that I immediately called the shelter and placed our loving paws prints on this beauty! I am thrilled to let you know that Penny is safe and is now resting comfortably at our vets where she will be receiving the medical care she needs! Thank you again for all you do for the animals!

Thanks to networking, fate or coincidence, and the ability of Leave No Paws Behind to take Penny in, this senior will not be spending the rest of her days alone in a kennel run.

Thank you!

Noted - ecstatic for Penny - she so deserves to live out the rest of her life with kind, loving and compassionate humans. I hope she lives the life of a queen. Heartfelt thanks to all who helped her.
