So often, those of us who do rescue are considered heroes for what we do to help these Airedales find a better life. Take Daisy, for instance. Daisy was a puppy mill girl who came to rescue with Demodex mange along with multiple bacterial infections. She had many heroes including the rescue person who picked her up, her foster dad who tenderly loved her, a special vet who cared for her more than she charged, a groomer who donated her time for baths and medications, and the awesome supporters who donated to rescue to make this all possible - just to name a few. Thank you to each and every one of you. You are Daisy’s heroes!
However, as you read the heartwarming stories of Airedales on the pages of our website, you will see that more often than not, the real heroes are the rescue Airedales, like Daisy, who worm their way into our lives. The ones whose kisses help wipe away our tears or heal a broken heart, whose antics provide us with laughter, whose companionship brings us a better understanding
of life, and whose tenacity shows us strength and character. Despite what they have been through, they know how to let the past go and live completely in the happier now. They are our teachers, our healers, our friends, and most of all, our heroes. And we are far better people for having known them.
Charlotte is just one of our recent rescues who came to us one day and gave birth to three puppies the next day. Charlotte is 10 years old. Two of the three pups were taken by C-section and one did not survive. Despite all this, Charlotte is a happy Aire-girl. She is trusting of her caregiver handling her puppies and her story is a perfect example of how the Airedale community works together as heroes.
The new year is just around the corner. With it, comes the opportunity to resolve to be a hero; to make a difference in the life of a rescue Airedale. Our heroes come in many different forms, from our transporters, foster homes, coordinators, Facebook fans, computer helpers, donors, and people who just help spread the word. We appreciate them all - our heroes! Join our growing family of heroes today. Volunteer your time or make a donation to help. Thanks a bunch!Lynn O’Shaughnessy
