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.
