Throwaway Pups

So now here we are, all confused and alone... in a shelter with others who long for a home.

The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat, with so many to care for, they can't stay to chat,

They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer... we know that they wonder how long we'll be here.

We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads.. of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds.

Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears - our friends filled with emptiness, worry, and fear.

If you can't adopt us and there's no room at the Inn - could you help with the bills and fill our food bin?

We count on your kindness each day of the year - can you give more than hope to everyone here?

Please make a donation to pay for the heat... and help get us something special to eat.

The shelter that cares for us wants us to live, and more of us will, if more people will give.
