Thank you for dong that. Currently my husband and I have 2 dogs and 2 cats we rescued off the streets plus a dog and a cat we purchased as babies living in our house. Thank god we have a big house and back yard. In the past we've rescued 8 other animals that eventully died in our care due to previous neglect. Our current find is an Akita who had the worst case of mange and ears so inmpacted with dirt she couldn't hear. She is now free of mange and dirt and a very pretty dog. Thank you for caring.
