Home for Life's Summer Appeal: The Story of Poppy: to make beauty out of things that make us weep

Poppy in the dandelions

"Any fool can be happy, It takes someone with a real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep."- Clive Barker.


Dear Friend:

Home has never meant more than in this time of uncertainty amidst a deadly pandemic sweeping the world -- a place of safety and protection.  Having a home, a place to belong, provides a foothold amid chaos, a stable base to imagine a new and better future despite the challenges that surround us.

We know the miraculous power of having a home for life and have seen again and again what having a place to belong means for animals who come to Home for Life®  longing for the safety, security, and acceptance that our sanctuary provides.  There's no place like Home for Life® for dogs and cats like 2-legged Sheltie, Poppy, where we make sure the trauma and rejection of their prior years will neither define them nor be the end of their story.

NOTE: The summer appeal $10,000 match deadline is August 15, 2020.
