there is no love like a rescued animals

Raven came to our zoo in 2004. She was in the prison rehab program and we waited for our "cell dog" to be released. She is a wonderful companion and tries to do whatever is asked of her. We both had breast cancer and I gave a speech at a local fund raiser regarding early detection. We proudly wear our pink shirts and hope to be best friends for a long time.

All my pets are rescued from a shelter, including my birds. Check my zoo profile for all pictures. Lenny tho however had to be put to sleep after we had him for 5 months. The 1st shelter he was in had tested him for heartworm and was positive and they were going to put him to sleep , so the 2nd shelter took him, tested him and they said it was negative. After we took him to our vet, he said he wasnt due to be tested so we thought nothing more. He ended up with coughs and coughing , so he was back and forth to the vet. On the 5th month Lenny became worse and finally the vet did a heartworn test and it was positive. He ended up with it in his lungs and most organs, we took him to purdue and nothing could be done about it without him suffering so we had to put him to sleep, which was the hardest decision I have ever made. We loved him and miss him a lot. After a couple of weeks we got chico, to try help take away the pain. We still miss Lenny a lot.
