Hope For Paws

I can't sleep tonight- for now I am blaming the descent of the New Moon (the actual moon, not the Twilight book... Just wanted to clear that up now). I was going through some blogs I had missed reading today and came across this wonderful one:

"What It Means To Care" by MadeByGirl

It's about Bradley, the dog pictured on the left. He was rescued at a shelter by Eldad Hagar who runs an animal rescue organization called "Hope For Paws". They rescue and foster animals that ordinarily wouldn't have a chance in regular shelters.

Thank goodness for people in the world like Eldad who gave Bradley a couple of hours of pure happiness (nothing is better then fast food burgers and fried chicken- just ask my old roommate.). After doing a little research it turns out that Bradley's condition was fully preventable but his puppy mill, backyard breeder just dumped him in a shelter. He ended up going blind and living in severe pain- the lack of consideration and empathy in people breaks my heart. I just don't understand...

As MadeByGirl mentions "Hope For Paws" has created a book showcasing many of the animals they have saved and fostered. It's only $9.95 and it goes to an amazing cause.

More about Bradley and Hope For Paws...
