A few days ago, we posted a beautiful video about House With a Heart Pet Sanctuary in Gaithersburg, Maryland, which is dedicated to providing a sanctuary and forever home to senior and special-needs pets. A wonderful article on dogster.com takes us behind the scenes to see how the operation runs and to meet founder Sherry Polvinale:
“I was enjoying a meal with friends, and the question on the table was: What would you do with your life if money was no object?” explains Sherry Polvinale, cofounder and director of House With a Heart Pet Sanctuary (HWAH). “I said I would do something like Best Friends Animal Society in Utah, but for senior dogs and cats. I felt terrible thinking about all those dogs and cats being given up because they were old and not so convenient anymore. So my friends said, well … why don’t you?”
These are some special people doing wonderful work to make the last days, months, and years for these dogs in a loving place.
