In memory of Bruce, a handsome big boy who captured the hearts of many in a very short period of time. Your spirit, strength and gentle soul will remain with all of us at Saving Paws Rescue for a long time to come. I’ll remember you always as “my big handsome guy.”
– Charis Williams, SPR Volunteer “Foster Mom”
On August 4, 2017 our SPR family suffered a devastating loss. Our courageous Isa lost her battle at 2:15 am and passed away in her bed at the doghouse with volunteers by her side. She was surrounded by all the things she had come to love – her roommates, Cosy and Jasmine, her collection of stuffed toys, a warm bed and surrounded in the love of the volunteers and supporters who rallied her to fight. She was wrapped in the loving arms of those who came to feed her, love her and encourage her to fight from the first day she arrived until the last breath she took.
There had to be a reason we had a volunteer sitting in the lobby of county picking up another dog that day – to bring this sweet girl to a place that would push and go beyond to give her a chance. Sadly her life before SPR had been too hard to overcome.
As she slipped away, volunteers talked to her of all the wonderful SPR dogs who would greet her as she crossed over. Run free sweet Isa.
Thank you to all the volunteers and supporters who have followed, sent prayers, donated and shared her story.
