Abigail, THANK YOU for all you have done.
Not this time…
It’s been my experience and the experience of others when they have needed help with a project, help was HARD to find. Sometimes you would call someone, leave a message and would not receive a response to your request. BUT NOT THIS TIME!
This is a thank you to two organizations and two individuals for being uncommonly professional, courteous and compassionate at just the right time. First Thank you from a heart of gratitude to Abigail, the director of a fairly new non-profit “Project K9 Services” way out in Brunswick, Ga. I do not know how she was initially contacted but I am grateful she was. I do not remember working with anyone who had more “can do”, “stick to it” attitude than Abigail. Within just a few hours she had found resources right here in Cherokee County to fill the fast-approaching needs of 3 big dogs. The dog’s owners were in the hospital with uncertain discharge dates. One of the owners is a veteran with several medical issues. The other had been in the hospital 12 weeks.
Abigail, in waving her magic wand, contacted Denise at Murphy Pet Mama and Denise was on the job. There was no “I’ll call you back”, she was there. Then and I’m not sure how Abigail did it from Brunswick Georgia, she contacted Kadillac Kennel in Cherokee County. The owner David Worsham joined the effort as soon as he heard a veteran was involved. David went above and beyond to help this veteran and his dogs. Then to top things off, Tractor Supply in Murphy donated a big bag of dog food to keep the dogs happy.
Abigail, Denise, David and Tractor Supply; you did not know this couple in any way. But you saw a need and jumped in with both feet. Your compassion is an example for most of us. When we see a need many times we think; “well, someone else can take care of that”. Well, not you! You have made a difference for a couple you don’t know and from me, a very heart felt THANK YOU for your professionalism and commitment to accomplishing the task of meeting a need. There are many good people and organizations, but these four are setting a true example.
