Moo Shu

We got our Moo Shu at 7 weeks of age. Little did we know that she would nearly die twice at 8 months before she was diagnosed with Addison’s Disease. She is our special needs girl and she turned 8 this week! She needs a stress free life and we make sure she has it! She has made our lives so full…in spite of all her medical issues. We wouldn’t trade her for a hundred healthy dogs!
Because of her, our inspiration, we have been volunteers with The Shelter Connection, at the North Hempstead Animal Shelter, making the lives of shelter dogs better until they get a forever home.We also rescue dogs slated for euthanasia from overcrowded shelters when our kennel has extra space, which we often have since the volunteer program began. There are so many tears, but so much more joy. We have nursed dogs back to health that were nearly starved to death. We have had to have chains embedded in dogs’ necks surgically removed. We were deeply touched the night you talked about your dog and greatly appreciative that you are one of the wonderful folks who adopts an older dog. So many senior canines are dumped at our shelter in the golden years of their lives. We work as hard, or maybe even harder, to get them a good home, as we would any puppy. Every dog deserves the dignity of a wonderful loving home right up until the day he passes over the Rainbow Bridge. If people only knew..and saw…how sad their dogs are when they are abandoned at a shelter, perhaps they would try a little harder to keep them. We could go on and on, but suffice it to say that helping dogs in need has made our lives fulfilled. It is no mistake the God spelled backward is dog. They are one of His greatest gifts.

God bless you, Denise and Roc from NY
