With Thanksgiving approaching, everyone will soon be taking time to acknowledge what they’re grateful for. I am grateful for many things, but one thing that stands out to me the most is my puppy Mango. I recently rescued a puppy from the Humane Society. Going to the Humane Society or any rescue agency is probably one of the saddest things ever, but also rewarding in many different ways.

Mango has made my life so much better! I have a constant companion, an endless source of entertainment, she’s always eager to welcome me home, and she gives unconditional love that you can’t find anywhere else... what can be better than all of that? Animals are just the best.

I am so grateful for the rescue agencies out there. Without them we would have many more stray animals suffering. Adopting/rescuing is a great opportunity to save a life, while adding a new member to your family. I love animals and seeing them suffer makes me extremely sad, but knowing there are rescue agencies out there makes me grateful that other people care too.
