Entrant's First Name
Maggie was rescued from Indianapolis Animal Care and Control 15 years ago. That began an incredible journey for both of us.
She was my first rescue. I knew nothing about shelters, about how many animals end up in them every year, about how some communities don't provide enough resources to save most of the animals who are homeless.
Fifteen years later, Maggie is still my loyal companion and friend. She has Cushings disease and has lost most of her muscle mass. She has dementia and is sometimes confused. Her hips are weak and sore. Still, she is a happy girl who gets very excited to go outside, to get a treat, or to welcome me when I get home.
Fifteen years later, I find myself in Asheville, NC, working every day to save dogs and cats (and guinea pig, chickens, pigs, and any other species who ends up at our door).
Maggie is my inspiration. Her days are short. She's in the twilight of her life. I'm so happy that I had the honor of saving her, but in truth, she saved me.
