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!

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!
