The first e-mail (somewhat edited to protect privacy):
I just received a call that has me in tears...
A gentleman in XXXXX just lost his wife and is in poor
health himself. Like many, he has also fallen on hard times
financially. He must move ......
He must also lose another family member, Juna, his sibe.
His sister contacted me, he can no longer afford a phone.
His electricity is being turned off soon, maybe today. He
has taken Juna to vets, etc. in the hopes of finding her a
home, but nothing. He needs to get out to XXXXX and
establish residency to receive the medical care he needs.
We need to bring Juna in now.
Juna is eight years old and a pampered baby. She goes
everywhere with him, very social girl. Obviously, he will
not leave until he knows she is safe. Time is critical.
Anyone??? The inn is full here, but we cannot say "no" to
Call or email me if you can help, even short term until
foster space opens up.
The second e-mail:
WE DID IT!
YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!
We are planning to get Juna Sunday.
She will be our guest until she goes to XXXXX's and final
destination at XXXXXX's.
Thank you ALL - I will sleep well tonight!
I'm thankful that I know such caring people!
