Lacy here, I haven’t met most of you in person, but I am grateful to you. My life has changed a lot in the last few months and it is all because of you!
When I was kenneled in Houston, I was terrified. Before that, I had lived on the streets for as long as I could remember. Though I love people I had never been fortunate enough to have one of my own. When I saw Maureen in the shelter, I could tell that she was someone who could help me. As she walked away, I saw my chance to escape and I was taking it. I didn’t want her to leave without me.
I felt so lucky when Maureen took me with her. Her voice and eyes were kind and I knew she would care for me. Boy was I right. The first thing they did at the SAPA! Clinic was put me in a bath full of warm water. It felt so good, I finally got relief, I couldn’t remember the last time I wasn’t itchy. As I cuddled into a safe warm bed for the first time ever, I was told that Rebecca was coming for me in the morning. I wasn’t sure who Rebecca was but I was pretty flattered she was coming just for me!
Rebecca sure does know how to spoil a girl. At her house I got lots of hugs, regular spa treatments, and even sparkly clothes to wear. She even took me to a fancy party where I met dolphins, that’s right y’all...dolphins!!! I’ve never had so much fun, everyone seemed to love me and I made so many friends!
Soon Rebecca said she had something important to tell me. I then heard the most beautiful words in the world. Rebecca said, “Lacy, we have found a home for you. You will be safe and you will be loved. The people that stay in this home need your light and you will shine for them”
The next day I visited my new home at the San Antonio Recovery Center. Rebecca was right, they love me there. People sometimes look sad but I know how to make them feel better. Sometimes they need me to be funny, sometimes they need me to cuddle, and sometimes they just need me to sit quietly with them. I’m very good at knowing what they need.
Thank you to everyone for helping to save me and helping me to live this beautiful life.
Thank you for keeping hope alive!
