I am a lucky dog. My Momma and Daddy love me.
I go everywhere with my Momma and I get to bring my toys along too!
I live in a happy cottage where I get yummy food every day. I have a
cozy little bed to sleep in (although I always cuddle up with Momma and
Daddy at night in their bed). I can run around in my yard and bark at the squirrels or
the cats who stop by. I love the postman who comes to visit me! I am one
of his favorites on his route.
I am an important member of my family.
But ... life is not always happy for other dogs. Many are abused and neglected.
For these dogs and yes cats too, life is very sad. My Momma told me about an

for pets that are unwanted or neglected. Their mission is to reduce and hopefully
one day eliminate the huge number of dogs and cats destroyed each year in
our nation's animal shelters. They have spent over 20 years working toward

hurricane Katrina left so many homeless dogs and cats alone, frightened
They have a wonderful sanctuary at Angel Canyon in southern Utah where
they care for lots of best friends in these special areas:
Here is a little pot bellied pig who is getting special care
at Piggy Paradise. This should be of special interest to my friend
Thank you for reading my special message from me to you. Momma
says that you humans are to care for the animals because Our Lord says,
"For every animal in the forest is mine and the cattle on a
thousand hills". (Psalm 50:10)
By the way ~ Boo Boo bear is doing great and is climbing trees at the
sanctuary in McCall, Idaho and will be released into the forest very soon now!
Okay Momma, I'm all done now. Can I go help Daddy drive the truck?
Not yet Bentley, you still have to tell everyone that you are joining these
fun parties ~
Okay Bentley, now you are finished!
