Animal Success Stories

Skyline Bar


 ... Janine Allen  ...

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 overworked 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.

(1.29.13)  I just wanted to keep you up to date on Willie.  I attached a few pictures for you.  He is doing so good! He is the best dog ever!  My husband and I (and our boys) cannot believe how lovable, obedient, and adorable he is.  We take him to the dog park almost every weekend, and he loves meeting new dogs, and has started warming up to people as well. He has definitely made himself comfortable, he is the king of the house! Ha!  He has brought so much joy and laughter to us on a daily basis.  Thank you Boxer Rescue!
