In Like A Lamb, Out Like A Food Lion

Dogster member Mozart gave me a bark to share the news about a new way to donate to the North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue, located in NC.

Food Lion grocery stores are donating a small portion of the proceeds of your bill every time you shop using your MVP Card. All you need to do is sign up on the NMAR website, just use the online form filling our your name and 12 digit MVP number.

Voil, the North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue starts receiving much needed donations. Easy, safe, and painless.

The NMAR is a wonderful organization who give dogs like Ana, pictured, a chance to have a normal life. Beautiful Ana hasn't had it easy, she's lived at the shelter since she was four months old, over 2 1/2 years.

This poor girl has been with us since she was a 4 month old pup, and was feral for all intents and purposes. A kind man was able to trap her and bring her to us with the hope that we might be able to turn her around. We attempted to present her for adoption, thinking that someone with a soft spot for tough cases would take her, but we had no interest from anyone. When she was only 8 months old, the vets discovered that she had extremely bad hips, and we did not expect her to live comfortably for long.

Amazingly, Ana has continued to surprise us. Although still very, very shy, she is sociable on her own terms, in her own time. She will sit for petting and loving as long as the human is also seated. She will often jump up on the couch and initiate the attention, even with people she has never met before. She has NEVER shown any aggression towards humans, she simply runs off when she is frightened. She plays with toys and snuggles with her doggie friends. Ana gets on well with every dog she has ever met, and runs and plays with exuberance despite the conditions of her hips. She has required very little pain medicine up to this point, and if you did not know she had hip issues, you would not be able to tell by watching her play.

Ana is going to require a very special family, preferably with no more than two dogs and parents who will have lots of time and love to give her. If you think you're the one please contact NMAR as soon as possible, there are some changes at the shelter and Ana desperately needs to move on to her forever home.
