    Default I rescued a human today...

    I rescued a human today.

    -
    Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor

    peering apprehensively into the kennels.
    I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

    -
    I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
    As she stopped at my kennel,

    I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.
    I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today.
    Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy,

    and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
    -
    As she read my kennel card, I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past.
    I only have the future to look forward to

    and want to make a difference in someone's life.

    -
    She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.
    I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.
    Gentle fingertips caressed my neck.

    She was desperate for companionship.
    A tear fell down her cheek

    and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.
    -
    Soon my kennel door opened,

    and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.
    I would promise to keep her safe.
    I would promise to always be by her side.
    I would promise to do everything I could

    to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.
    -
    I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.
    So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors.
    So many more to be saved.
    At least I could save one.
    -
    I rescued a human today.

    Hubby and I adopted two cats from a shelter in May 2008. We were definitely "chosen'' by the kitties. What a touching poem!

    That is so beautiful. I am in tears.

    Sometimes I do feel like my three pound doggies 'rescued' me. I love them so much.

    Thank you very much for posting that.

    all our dogs have come from the shelter or abusive homes. We just lost my dear sweet old man a couple fo days ago and this warmed my heart and took me back to the day I first saw him. You can read about him here...Godspeed Mr. Moo

    great, now I'm crying again...SORRY! Excuse the blubering emotional basketcase!

    Aw, thanks for sharing.

    I LOVE my old man that picked me off of the petfinder website this summer. He was so depressed he wouldn't even pick his head up off of the kennel floor when I went to meet him. The first time he wagged his tail, after being in my life for two weeks, I cried.

    My young, never ending ball of energy Annie is a doll, but many days the quiet demeanor of Ben as he sweetly shoves his head under my hand for a pet, makes everything better in the world.
