 Here is a wonderful poem that one of our fosters wrote, for the dog she adopted from us (see "Chula" under our successes section):

My name is Chula and breeding was my game,

Every 6 months my puppies came...,

and then went;

and this Chihuahua girl was spent.

Along came ResQ and carried me away you see,

They took me home for a rest,

And I was careful not to be a pest.

I took a trip to the vet

For a special operation so I could just be a pet.

I stayed in ResQ for some time,

And a Foster Mom took one look at me

And said there is a girl I want to see.

So ResQ packed me up and drove me there,

And my Foster Mom wondered how I would fare.

I wasn't sure of this place where I came,

Everything was loud and new and strange.

I hid in my little cave,

And under the bed I stayed.

With time and care I ventured farther each day,

And made friends with my new animal family.

There is Morgan and Rosie, both dogs like me,

And Happi the big cat,

And her little gray friend Izzy who was rescued out of a tall


and that's that....

My Foster Mom decided that since I was so sweet,

That no more families would I meet.

I'm here to stay and have fun on my new turf

I call this place My Heaven on Earth!
