Dear Dog Lovers,

My name is Shades and I’m learning about the goodness there still is in this world. I’ve done my best in my 9 years to be a good girl but when it came down to it my family simply didn’t love me enough. You see, not too long ago I began getting a strange feeling in my… you know… private parts. I’m no pushover so I didn’t complain any, I tried to act like nothing was wrong. But then my privates started actually coming out of my body! I know, gross… huh? I still didn’t complain but I really was hoping my family would take me to see a doctor who could make me all better. They did take me to the doctor and he said I need something called surgery to repair my “prolapsed vaginal polyp” (I looked that up!). But it was gonna cost way more than my measly grocery store dog food so they decided to not fix me and were talking about just putting me to sleep. I know what that means! I’m not ready to die! I still have a lot of lizards to chase and bones to chew and beds to roll on! 

I prayed real hard and God answered my prayers because he loves dogs, too. He sent me a guardian angel family that is trying their darndest to raise the money needed to put me back together. My former family gave me away but it’s gonna be the best thing that could’ve happened! The daddy took me to see a really nice doctor today who was so nice and made me feel like I mattered. He started me on pills so I don’t get any bad infection and he is planning on fixing me next week. He has to cut off the polyp that’s hanging out of my privates and then spay me – I hear if my first family would have done this when I was young I wouldn’t be in this position now. Sigh. I’m trying real hard to keep on blankets so I don’t get yucky stuff all over their house. They want to keep me. That makes me smile. They keep telling me what a good girl I am and I’m gonna try real hard not to disappoint them. 

This is where I have to ask for you… to help them… help me. They don’t have tons of money, they have tons of love but this nice doctor has to be paid after he fixes me. I heard people saying how much of a great price he’s giving them and I know he wants to help as much as possible because he whispered so in my ear. He does a lot of good for all sorts of rescue animals in our town. It sure would make me the happiest girl in the world if you could just send in a bit of money to help my new family. You can pay the doctor directly so you know it’s going right to help me. I promise to be worth it and I will continue to say my prayers each night that every dog can be as lucky and loved as me!  


Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals, especially for animals who are suffering; for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated; for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars; for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals, and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
