happy 5 year anniversary to Carol and SAINTS
Nicole · Dec. 14, 2009
Five years ago today, SAINTS officially became a charity.
381 senior and special needs animals would have never had a second chance at life had Carol not made the life altering choice to start SAINTS.
Gyp: such a crazy cocker
Potato Ed: the chainsaw dog
Tiny little Pippa, would have never got to be spoiled by Johanna
Luke, would have never got to bump his head around Sheila and Leila's house
I never would have been spoiled by getting to share a wee bit of my life with Oz:
Sandy: wouldn't have gotten to be the most spoiled dog to ever enter my parents house
Honey, who i still miss incredibly:
I won't post pics of all my quys from SAINTS but, Ozzie, Honey, Wesley, Sandy, Carley, Millie, Thorny, Shrek and Fiona were very happy to have landed at SAINTS.
mable mae wouldn't have gotten to eat large chunks of meat at Chris and Deb's
All the volunteers wouldn't have the pleasure of sharing 16 amazing months with Dexter
or the roller coaster ride that was spritely life with her leg, or the adventure of living with calves who very quickly turn in to 1000lb cows. or learning about caring for Felv + cats. or blind dogs. or crazy dogs (that's a shout out to phoebe for you Tammy).
or this face:
could you imagine not ever getting to see oka, the dog who had to eat every 2-3 hours because of his pancreatic cancer, try to eat a tree, it's an image I'll cherish forever.
the queen of the mp room would have gotten to rule over a room with a never ending supply of treat:
Without SAINTS and Trina at CAC, Dusty wouldn't have become with big-boned-ed diabetic peeing machine that she is today:
And let's not even think where Emily, Joy and Percy would have ended up:
The original peeing machine:
and moses, bill, cole, jazz where would they have gone.
Thank you for starting SAINTS and for all of SAINTS' supporters for making it possible.
Edited to add this photo: I had finished this post and walked over to sit down and saw Carley and Fiona, fast asleep. I had to take the photo 5 times because it kept being blurry because i was giggling at the sight of these two:
edited to add another photo, updates from James and Mikey:
without SAINTS, they wouldn't have gotten the chance to be placed happily together in one home:
