My Story

I've had animals all my life...But there was a time I couldn't have any as I was renting or moving from place to place, etc...But there was also a very dark time in my life...see I was addicted to drugs and alcohol and felt that I wanted to die...I did make many attempts to try to end my life, but something got in the way..A power greater than me saw my potential...I got clean years later, and got my life back together gradually,but what really helped me feel complete was when my parents took me to the shelter to adopt my very own pup...I finally was living in a house and needed some uplifting in my life so my parents paid for the adoption and told me they would cover any vet expenses as I wasn't working full time and was very worried about that. Well, got a job, and started to feel I needed to do more...Then I adopted another pup to keep Anastasia company...That was it...I knew I had a greater purpose so in 2003 I reached out to Westside. Met Robin on Dec, 31, 2003 to take in my first foster...The rest is history. I take on the special dogs...Mange was the first medical cases, then came seizure pups, parvo, broken legs, hip dysplasia and luxating elbows, EPI dogs, MegaE dogs, fearful pups, pups that needed extra confidence, broken legs and tripods...Now I've got distemper survivor pups and a cancer pup that seems to be in remission...So I'm always busy 24/7 I treat my fosters as my own and when they get adopted it is a good/bad feeling all combined but I know I have made a difference. I will do whatever it takes to educate people about spay/neuter, responsible parents, and positive training...I found my purpose and I feel grateful every day!!! I am proud to be a volunteer of Westside.....
