Adoption and the pet rescue stories that become a history are so appealing — adopting in itself is such an exciting event, thinking about different traits and characteristics, looking through photos on the web, getting to know who might fit with your life, or maybe you already know. When you find who “speaks” to you, everything changes and you bring home the new love in your life.
That search and find mission turns into a story often told to friends, other pet owners you meet at parties or even out on the street. Ask me, I’ve told my pet rescue tales at the check-out line of the grocery store! I never tire of hearing someone’s voice shine with the happiness experienced when they first met their best friend. Imagine all the stories people in rescue have and all the lives that have been touched with that bit of magic when a lifelong match is made. If you love these stories too, here’s a treat!
Julie Klam, author and rescue volunteer, has written a book on her experiences revealing how the dogs we save also save us. A guest on the Today show and written up in the New York Times, Julie has a video chat with Steve Dale about her book “Love At First Bark”.
