Thanks, Samantha. I’ve been taking in rescues for most of my life. I lived on 3 acres in the country for more than 20 years and once had 8 rescue dogs, 6 cats, and a pig. Now that I live in a townhome in the city, my space is limited but still we have 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 guinea pigs — all rescues. As we age, we choose older rescues and they are so loving and appreciative, as if they realized their chances were few and know we truly saved their lives. Their love is boundless!
