Violet (first photo): This little dog in a Midwest mill was, in addition to all the usual perils of her situation, almost totally blind. She could not see who or what was coming at her at any given time. Fear was all that tiny Violet had known until we rescued her in August.

As it happened, one of our stalwart volunteers had come along on that trip — one who frequently welcomes special-needs fosters into her home. When she saw Violet, she scooped her into her arms and into her heart. It wasn’t long afterwards that the adoption took place.

Today, here’s what Jamye says about their newest family member: “Even though Violet is vision-impaired, it doesn’t slow her down. She has picked up on potty training, the stairs and layout of the house faster than any of our other 25 fosters had. Ms. Smarty Pants is her nickname, and she is a very happy, friendly girl.”

Each day for Violet — and for all the dogs we rescue — is a gift, a gift made possible by caring people like you.
