many of the animals here have had pretty damn crappy lives. year after year they were discounted, de-valuated and pushed aside. they were things without hearts, without spirits, without souls..they were the victims of humans wants, needs, and ever changing moods.
some suffered violence, some suffered neglect...all of them suffered betrayal and broken promises.
when they were old and broken, sick with sad hearts, mixed up minds,
and rotten teeth, homely with matts and dirt and cloudy eyes..they finally made it to shelter care when they were too wrecked to find a new and more caring family.
and these survivors, these animals, who are still here... despite lifetimes of heartache and challenges, who have proven incredible personal strength and amazing abilities to forgive...join the ranks of the unadoptables and their time left is suddenly limited.
if lady luck has pity for them...maybe they get one more chance for that elusive happy life...maybe they can come to a place like saints for a little more time.
and while not likely and against some pretty big odds..maybe one day, someone will care enough to put their own personal fears, wants and needs aside and take them home..worn out, beat up, sick and old and love them with all of their hearts.
it happened for bruiser, it has happened for others..maybe one day it will happen again for the ones who are still patiently waiting for that magical and elusive gift near the end of their lives.
