Hope for Paws

So last night as I was catching up on my weekend blog reading and feeling like poopy, I came across this post on Desire to Inspire. Instant tears...seriously, instant. The story behind this little guy is so touching and sad...
From Desire to Inspire, I linked to Hope for Paws and immediately purchased this book. This non profit, that strives to rescue even the sickest of animals, is raising money to ensure that the good work that they are doing can continue.
I've been looking for coffee table books and for $9.95, I think this is a win-win situation.

Awwwww. Can't stand to see an animal suffer.

Sorry you were feeling poopy.

Oh, this is soooo sad. I'm glad the poor little guy spent his last 24 hours with a loving family and eating cheeseburgers and fried chicken. It was probably the best day of his short little life. Hope for Paws is such a great organization. I really admire people who spend their lives rescuing animals. My boy's aunt runs a one-woman rescue group, and I applaud her for it. I'm sorry to hear you're feeling "poopy". I hope you take some time to rest this weekend and do things that make you happy!

That puppy is so adorable and yet so sad. I'm afraid to read the story because I'm sure I will sob and then not be able to think about anything for the rest of the day. Le sigh.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww so amazing and adorable! I rescued my little shih-tzu Swindon from the streets of NYC, so I have a definite place in my heart for these little guys. I wish I could take them home!

I have to say that little guy is amazingly adorable!! I'm terrified to open the link- my heart is already breaking because I can only imagine what I am about to read...but you mentioned nonprofit and raising money....I completely back both of those!

thank you for sharing!
