In the movie, It's a Wonderful Life, you learn that every time you hear a bell ring, an angel gets its wings. Wouldn't it be nice to believe that every time a person or group chooses to help homeless dogs, especially senior dogs, that it is also a sign of something wonderful happening? Their compassion is a sign that the world at large, that humanity, is choosing to do the right thing, not because they are coerced but because it is the right thing to do. They are proof that not everyone is consumed by greed or narcissism, as much of the media would have you believe.
There are people and groups who understand that the compassion we show towards senior dogs will have a positive influence on the world. Watch this video about a Maryland retirement home for senior dogs, and be inspired:
Nearly two-dozen dogs are spending their golden years at House with a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary. Sher Polvinale and a team of volunteers at this Gaithersburg, Maryland, home spare no expense and care for the dogs' every need—from washing and feeding to medications and vet visits.
