More Than Just Pets by Asha

I find that it is so easy with work, as with most things in life, to just go through the day completing tasks.  Marking something off of a task list has always been one of my very favorite feelings.  But sometimes in doing that, I forget the bigger, warmer, fuzzier picture. I forget that each day people who love their pets as much as I love mine turn to us to provide the very best care for their furry family members.  Today, we received the most excellent reminder of what this work is really about and I just had to share it with you.  Below is a poem written by a client by the name of Beth about her dog, Strawberry.

Strawberry”s Story

Strawberry was a feral wolf dog, an outcast from her home.

A babe in the woods she wandered, soon to have pups of her own.

Some good folks took her in at last. The pups were born and grew up fast

These folks had love, but they had no vet.  Who’d save the day???


Now Strawberry and her family will never be alone,

Together for a life-time in their forever home.

Their future will be bright, I bet, thanks to the folks at Emancipet.

God bless the staff, the volunteers and vet, and all the folks who support


Beth, like most of our clients, knew that Strawberry and her pups needed her help and she wanted to provide them with the very best. Her poem was a reminder that what we do is about more than “just pets.” It’s about the families who open their hearts and their lives up to pets who need them – and if you ask Beth, everybody wins!
