For those of you that have read the book, and may have seen the movie that opened yesterday, I wanted to share a story that someone forwarded me about one of the puppy "actors" that John Grogan (author of Marley and Me) adopted from the set.
Also, take the time to visit the American Humane site and read about how the film makers are helping to make a difference.
Remember, while Marley in the movie may be cute and cuddly, as Mr. Grogan has found, puppies require a lot of love, patience, training, money, and TIME. Some puppies also need more care than others, especially those with special needs. Make sure that you are prepared to make a commitment to this life that you bring into your home, and make sure that you have what it takes to allow unconditional love into your heart.

Eastern Washington Siberian Husky Rescue has a 4-month-old Siberian husky puppy in Colville, WA, that was found on the highway yesterday. He has 2 broken legs, one front and one back. The vet thinks he probably fell out of a pickup rather than being hit because there was no "road rash" as if he'd been rolled. There are 2 breaks in each leg, both bones. One left and one right. His legs have to be pinned, and it's going to cost $1600. The rescue has a foster home for him while he recuperates, but really need help to raise funds for his surgery. No one has filed a report on a missing puppy.
The rescue (a non-profit) has a paypal account on their website, and there's a "make a donation" at the top of the page. They are a non-profit 501(c)3 Siberian husky Rescue. There is also an account set up with the vet through Colville Pet Rescue. The vet is:
Chewelah Vet Clinic
PO Box 29
Chewelah WA 99109
For: Spirit Puppy -Colville Pet Rescue/EWSR
We know that money is tight, but if you can spare a dollar or two to help this poor pup get better, every little bit helps.
