A Message From a Friend

I’m learning that part of Kate’s legacy is how her story has affected and influenced others. With their permission, their stories will be shared here. Jenn reminded me that this week is the 3rd anniversary of the evening I met Kate at Lamar-Dixon. It means a lot to me to hear of the efforts of Jenn and others like her!

 Hi Jenny,You don’t know me, but I feel like I know you after reading “8 State Hurricane Kate”. Thank you so much for sharing your story and Kate’s.I took in a 10 yr old ACD from a shelter in Houston on the day she was to be euthanized. It has been difficult at times and has taken a LOT of work, but she is now healthy, happy, and gets along with my 2 yr old ACD, Yoyo.I just wanted you to know what an inspiration you are to me. There have been times in rescue that I have felt overwhelmed and ready to give up – but after reading your book, I feel rejuvenated and have a fresh passion for helping these guys – especially the old dogs that deserve a chance.

If I remember correctly, today – September 16 – is the anniversary of the day you met Kate. After over a month of work and worry – we finally got a 10 yr old ACD named Sweetie Pie to her forever home today. This one is for Kate – as she has helped show the rescue world that even the old guys are worth saving.

Thank you again for your diligence in saving as many as you can. You make me want to try harder and do more.
