In the world of animal welfare as it has always existed, there are two doors through which any shelter or rescue animal will eventually pass: Door Number One is adoption. Door Number Two is euthanasia. Now, thanks to Home for Life's visionary efforts, another option exists: The Third Door®. The care-for-life sanctuary.
Here are some of the animals at Home For Life, some of which even come to them from other countries:
1.Here's Indi, a paraplegic dog from India, totally rocking a magenta sweater.
2.Program and Goofy enjoy a romp in the snow earlier this year.
3.Tiger was discovered as a stray with a leg infection so bad that his leg needed to be amputated.
4.This goat buddy needed a little help getting around thanks to his deformed front legs, but he's making it work!
5.Polar might have FIV, but he's still livin' life to the fullest.
Even kitties need some outdoors time every once in a while! Polar seems to be enjoying it.
6.Playtime is very serious business at Home For Life.
7.Dodi the Great Dane might have epilepsy, but that doesn't stop her from making her rounds at the local hospital.
8.Rainbow needed some TLC after being found malnourished in the woods.
9.Ahhh, living the life of luxury.
10.Here's Flurry! He's an Australian Shepherd mix who is super cheery and doesn't seem to mind his blindness at all.
Just try and challenge him to a race!
11.Shroeder lost one of his legs in some farm machinery, but thanks to the staff at Home For Life, he's doing much better.
12.Meet Roo. He's named after the peculiar way he has to walk, due to his deformed front legs. Here he is without his special cart. What a goof!
So, why does the staff do what they do?
13.Because everyone deserves a snuggle buddy...
14....no matter what.
