    Paralyzed In Shock

      I have always grown up with animals. There has never been a time where I have not had a pet in my house. This has brought many things; learning of compassion, of caring. Learning about animals and having friends...but it also brings hurt and death. As any living thing...

    Hopefully I'll Save Many More In Later Years.

     I've saved a few animals. I've found and cared for baby squirrels twice. One fell from our attic into our utility closet, and the other fell from the nest and impaled himself on our fence. I've saved many a caterpillar from my dorm room freshman year. I was silly about it...

    I'm holding a cuddly puppy rescued from the animal shelter on his "last day."  He's not mine for keeps--I'm a foster mom for shelter dogs.  It's always incredibly hard saying goodbye, but this helps homeless animals find families and allows me to help as many...
