It's with a heavy heart that we accepted a very generous donation from Greg & Heidi Thomas-Dunn from Springfield, MO. ESRA Volunteer & Member, in the memory of little Maggie from Kansas.
Maggie was a setter that was pulled from a shelter by Springer Rescue and we were going to bring her to Illinois in a week or so. For unknown reasons, she passed away while spending the night at the vet's office.

A Brilliant Rainbow
By: My friend
High on whispered wings I fly,
a radiant star, I light the sky.
Toward the sun I soar so free,
a brilliant rainbow follows me.
I pulsate through your very soul
and in my paws your heart I hold.
The day will come when you'll fly too,
I'll be here then to welcome you.
Until the time we meet again
I won't journey far my friend.
For in your love I live so free,
a brilliant rainbow guiding me.
