A Dogs Soul

Every dog must have a soul somewhere deep inside
Where all his hurts and grievances are buried with his pride.
Where he decides the good and bad. The wrong way from the right.
And where his judgment carefully is hidden from our sight.
A dog must have a secret place where every thought abides.
A sort of close acquaintance that he trusts in and confides.
And when accused unjustly for himself he cannot speak.
Rebuked, he finds within his soul the comfort he must seek.
He'll love, though he is unloved. And he'll serve though badly used.
And one kind word will wipe away the times when he's abused.
Although his heart may break in two his love will still be whole;
Because God gave to every dog an understanding Soul!

Another Happy Tail -- Petey


From the Cannons of Festus, MO:

My husband works nights and our daughter went away to college. I wanted a dog for a
companion in the evenings and started searching Petfinder.com. After weeks of
looking and sharing the photos with my husband Mark finally agreed to getting new
pet. We found a dog we were interested in and he was already taken when we called,
however they had a Fox terrier available. We went to see very shy Petey and he has
turned out to an energetic, bundle of joy. He's my husband's buddy and they are
inseparable and go everywhere together. Petey is so friendly, he has turned my whole
family into dog lovers.

PETSMART WILL NOT COME TO PIEDMONT

The town is too small! The PetSmart truck will not deploy.

We have contacted ASPCA to see if they can help.

PIEDMONT ANIMAL CONTROL UPDATE IV

We are in need of a place to store supplies. A large empty area in a garage or other type of building would be helpful.

Please email info@actnowrescue.org if you know of a place to store donated supplies. A central location would help us direct donators and transporters, too!

Thanks for all of your offers of help!

RESCUES CAN'T SAVE LIVES WITH PET LIMIT LAWS

Pet Limit Laws Limit Rescue Organizations and other Responsible Pet Owners, Not Irresponsible Pet Owners
An irresponsible pet owner will be irresponsible with one -- or 20 -- pets! Until a city can write an ordinance that forces people to CARE about their animals, a few irresponsible pet owners will continue to indirectly help in the killing of healthy, adoptable animals at kill shelters everywhere.
A rescue organization member is trained in how to handle more than 3 dogs, is responsible enough to say, "I can't handle any more dogs right now," pays to spay/neuter, vaccinate, and put pets on heartworm and flea prevention, and gives much needed additional time for the pet to find its forever home.

We have asked the City of Arnold to allow rescue organizations the opportunity to save more lives by going over the pet limit every now and then to save a life. Our many requests are falling on deaf ears.

If you believe the City of Arnold could -- and should -- tolerate rescue groups enough to make an exception to the dog limit every now and then to save a life, please contact Mary Holden at mholden@arnoldmo.org and Matt Unrein at munrein@arnoldmo.org, and contact your city council representatives and tell them there is such a thing as COOPERATION between government and citizens! We're doing it for the New JCAC Shelter Fund!
