WW-#LightForPets-My Reasons

Join me and others around the world for the #LightForPets candle lighting service. Light a candle in remembrance of those who lost their lives and those who are still waiting for their special someone.

I will light a candle for Nadia. She along with dogs like Rocky and cats like Tank and Tiger spent their whole lives waiting for someone to call their own but that someone never came. They were our forever pets and they called the Owensboro Humane Society home. The years went by and old age creeped up on them but they can say "I was loved" 

 My candle will represent those like Gunner. They have waited and waited for somebody special to give them a home but for now they are happy that someone cares enough to sponsor them so they can have things they would have in a home.

Those like Dozer who have so much love to give if only given the chance.

and last but not forgotten is Zen. Who Oct. 5th will be missing a year. He was there one minute and gone the next. I hope whoever has him is taking care of him until we find him.

Their lives depend on it. 

I would be honored if you shared a photo of your candle on my FaceBook page.
