There is a wonderful pet adoption program that I’ve been able to be a part of. It’s called appropriately, “Love on Wheels”.
It turns out that there are some places in the northern states of the U.S. that have a shortage of pets. In Texas, we have plenty!! Someone, I think it was Stacy, came up with the idea of saving the rescues in Texas and sending them to deserving folks in New York.
I had the pleasure of fostering two of the dogs in the early stages of the program. They are such a delight. Usually the first couple of days, the dogs seem very sad, but by the third day, they begin to perk up. By the time they make it to New York, their tails are wagging. You can see a big smile at the 1:37 and also, the 1:54 mark of the youtube video below. That was one of my fosters, Smokey. She was the cutest dog and made me so happy in such a short amount of time. I cried when she left, but, as you can see, she is in good hands and that makes me even happier!
I smile every time I see the new group headed to New York. Happy tales to all of you precious puppies.
