A story of love, survival, three legs and thankfulness. On Oct. 9, 2017 a cat was brought to York Adopt a Pet. A lady found him on a country road south of York. He had been struck by a car and his bone was exposed through his shoulder. There was a massive infection and it was either euthanize or amputate.

“Blessed is the person who has earned the love of an older dog.” ~ Sydney Jeanne Seward It’s November, the month of Thanksgiving and love and yummy food. November is also National Adopt a Senior Pet Month. A month dedicated to the sweet older dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues across the country.
As I look out my office window here at home, on Thursday morning, the snow is falling softly, no wind and it is a beautiful scene with the birds and squirrels feeding at their food stations. I have a couple of fosters sitting with me, one sitting on half of the computer keys as I try to type around her, one sitting at the window diligently watching the birds eating their mid-morning snack.
You would think that having lived for several decades, I would have accepted the fact that my life is not and has never been complete without a dog. And since I have been sharing most of that multi-decade life with a person who also cannot live without a four-footed family member, be it feline or canine, I should have been prepared for Mandy, the five pound ball of fluff and cuteness that invaded our home three months ago.
There are some really awesome rewards when you are helping animals and people. They go hand-inhand and when you are helping one, you are also helping the other.
We’ve been hearing it for days, how the remnants of Hurricane Michael, and Florence before him, were causing flooding and even tornadoes inland, away from the coast.
