I'm so glad to finally share what I was able to do with the card!
My best friends mom is an amazing woman. She has a heart for shelter animals, particularly dogs, who need a forever home. The shelter she supports is regularly overcrowded and it's typical for the animals to be stressed out and scared out of their minds.
Susan visits once a week and takes each dog outside to get a break from the concrete floors and all the noise of the other animals. She plays with them, loves on them and takes pictures of them to share on social media so people will know they are available for adoption. Often when the shelter just doesn't have room for one more dog or there is a special medical need, she will take a dog to her home as a foster until they find a permanent home. The large majority of this care is done at her own expense.
Bruni was one of the dogs brought to the shelter in crisis. One can only imagine why or how he came to be in such horrible condition. Susan took him home, nursed him back to health, and now he is happy and living a great life in a wonderful home.
I wanted to give Susan one of the #GivingCards to help her with the expense of caring for her foster dogs. I'm so encouraged to have a friend like her in my life and am inspired by her willingness to be inconvenienced to care for those who so desperately need help.
Many thanks to the Rockstar Community Fund for sending a card for me to share and being such a blessing to so many!

Amazing difference when someone feeds you and loves you!

Giving Susan the card. She had tears in her eyes when I told her what it was and why I was giving it to her.
