Find a cause! Being part of a cause doesn’t mean that you have to move to Tibet and become a monk or stand on a street corner handing out leaflets. Technology has made supporting a cause as easy as joining a facebook group or watching it’s website. Supporting a cause does not mean that you have to send money or goods (but it does help) it means that you are part of a community of care. Your supportive comments and emails are very important moral boosters for those people in the physical world who are working with that cause .
Here is a cause that I follow and help. It is the Carolina Loving Hound Rescue. I came across the rescue on facebook. A friend shared a link and it peaked my curiosity and I fell in love. The Carolina Loving Hound Rescue is more than a page on facebook, it is a community. From our own homes we cheer dogs on, cry for the pain they had to endure and wonder in awe at the two mighty forces behind the rescue, Angela and Mark. Angela and Mark run, well not just run, they LIVE the Carolina Loving Hound Rescue. The rescue saves dogs, hounds, dachshunds and hound mixes. The poor dogs that they save have been abused, neglected and thrown away like trash. They also rescue the old dogs, the senior dogs who are so hard to place. And they rescue the pregnant dogs that no one wants. Angela and Mark have such dedication and love that it shines through the darkness that has entered these poor dogs lives and they bring these dogs back, back from all things bad to all things good!
Some of the doggies go to foster home to live until they find their ‘furever’ homes. There the foster Mom and Dad angels help nurse the physical and emotion wounds the dogs have suffered. Other dogs stay with Angela and Mark at Casa Loving until adopted and some dogs find their ‘furever’ homes at Casa Loving itself.
See those happy tails wagging at Casa Loving!
Angela’s dedication to posting photos and updates on the rescues facebook page is remarkable. You have to see it to believe it. Check it out and become part of the community!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words…look at these before and after photos:
