I have been in animal rescue for 5 years. I have seen and heard it all! Riley came to me recently by way of a very high kill shelter. She was found as a stray. No one came for her. She sat day after day waiting, and nothing. There is only a three day stray hold for our shelter. It is always over crowded. Her time was up. I begged for more time to try to find her a home. I got two extra days. On the last day, I hadn’t found her a home. But to the shelter I went. Something in her eyes. I couldn’t let her die. I brought her home in plans of having her go to a rescue. But after the first night, she had my heart. She wasn’t going anywhere. She was home.
