That is very kind of them. They really care and that means so much. I know those families feel so much better knowing their dogs are being cared for.. I know I would.

It is a gift from a caring person to reach out to and for defenseless animals left to fend for themselves at a time of destruction, devestation and misery. The animals know what is happening and are showing how grateful they are in the only way they know how by giving their unconditional devotion.
