December is filled with special holidays for many different cultures. One common thread they all share is, the love to give from the heart. IBR has been so blessed this year and holiday season from so many caring people. We've had the opportunity to save more dogs this year than ever before. We've also been fortunate to give a second chance to those with sever medical issues. All because of you!
IBR would like to wish every one the joyous celebration of your holiday and a New Year filled with wishes coming true.

Emily J. Demone-Contribution to Food & Medication. I'm blessed to open my eyes every morning to my Heart dog Willow, Which is why nothing pleases me more than to help good folks like yourselves and the organization, Last Chance Animal Rescue, here in New York, which rescued her from a kill shelter in SC.
They held an adoption event I helped at one day and my intention was to foster someone who wasn't adopted by day's end. Of course all of the puppies went first, but towards the end of the event, she caught my eye, underweight and sheepishly looking at me from under a folding table. From that moment on I was hooked! I took her home to foster her, but was unable to let her go. She is calm, gentle, playful, cuddly and it is as though there is a human soul inside her.
I have had some wonderful dogs from childhood on....but this girl is everything I loved in all of those wonderful animals, wrapped up in one amazing package. I know that if Last Chance didn't grab her, she'd be dead. They said she was set to die the next day. I can't imagine my life without her in it.
