Military Wife Rescues Puppy While Watching "Marley & Me" | Care2 Causes
That afternoon my husband came home to find his wife and a new puppy and asked “what did you do?” I told him the story and he agreed we needed to do our best to help her. Being newlyweds in the process of saving money to move into a bigger house, we knew we couldn’t keep her, as we already had my three dogs waiting to move home with us. We called every no-kill shelter in town and no one had room for her. My husband is active duty military, so the next step was to go to responsible people he knew and ask them if they would want a puppy. We took pictures and posted on Facebook, sent e-mails and text messages and waited. Four days later, as we were driving to a shelter that said they could probably take her, we got a call from one of my husband’s Sargeants who said he would take care of her until we moved to a bigger house, so that she didn’t have to go to a shelter.
