Urgent .... when love isn't enough .....

I love picking blackberries!  Even if every now and then I get swept away in a spur of the sunny moment and wind up with scratches in sensitive spots!  Does that keep me from picking blackberries?  Of course not!
At the end of the day, I know that I only have myself to blame for not taking a few extra minutes to fish out a thicker shirt and work gloves, eh?
If only life was so simple for the animals who are depending on us to keep them safe.   When a good dog has been through the school of hard knocks, it is not because they chose to be injured and / or ill treated.   Even worse, dogs are genetically hard wired NOT to complain ... nor is there really anyone they can complain TO if life has not handed them a bowl of cherries.
If a dog is very lucky, life can turn around.   In her horrible old life, before she was the star of Breakfast Television, Molly was lucky to survive her mistreatment.  
Happily for Molly, size does not matter for the kind hearts at Atlantic Small Dog Rescue  ... "Molly may not be considered a small dog, but she needed us and that's good enough for us!"   
Molly was missing a toe and part of her tail ... and her poor sweet self was riddled with BB shot!   It is no wonder she was frightened when she came to ASDR!
I am continually amazed at the generosity of spirit that moves the animal loving community.   Not every one has the time or the skills to run a rescue ... but everyone does have enough heart to help!
Like her beautiful sweet self, Molly's vet bill is anything but small!   If you would like to help ASDR with this, please click here.
What time is it?  It is always, always time to help when love knows no boundaries!
