This is a series of diaries highlighting animal rescues around the country and noting and celebrating the work they do to help animals who have no voices but ours to speak for them. I have decided to make this a daily series because there are so many wonderful rescues out there who need human help and weekly just doesn't seem to be enough. I have long wanted to start a rescue but lack the resources or time available to do so right now so this is my attempt to do my part. Today's rescue was found while searching for a shelter to help out ladycat713. Please see her diary here seeking assistance placing two of her cats. Her landlord is forcing her to do this and she can't afford to move now. I hope they are able to help but they're a fantastic organization anyway. I hope that these rescues will benefit from the kindness and benevolence of the community here at Daily Kos. They are amazing organizations and worthy of Kossack attention and care.
Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed
All nicely tucked into my warm new bed
I'd like to open my baggage
Lest I forget
There is so much to carry-
So much to regret.    Hmmmm…..

Yes, there it is, right on the top.
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss
And there by my bed, hide Fear and Shame
As I look on these things I tried hard to leave
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain

I love them, the others, the ones who left me
But I was not good enough - For they did not want me.
Will you add to my baggage?
Or will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things -
And take me right back?

Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage
And never repack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see
But I do come with baggage -
Will you still want me?

About the Shelter

Founded in August 2011, the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter is a NO-KILL, non-profit organization on a mission to save the abused, neglected, abandoned and injured animals in Corinth and Alcorn County in Mississippi. Funded by private donations, the City of Corinth, the City of Farmington and the Alcorn County board of supervisors, the shelter is managed by community leaders, volunteers and a dedicated staff.

Our work would not be possible without the generous financial support of caring people like you. Your donation will go to work instantly to help feed and heal hundreds of animals at our shelter. Whether you are a longtime supporter or you are donating for the first time, thank you for helping us to carry on this worthy mission.


#3498 Goldie Locks is for adoption. A female chow mix pup around 3 months old. The color of her coat is to die for, plus a small patch of white down the front of her face. Potential adopters will be screened for Goldie Locks.

Hmmm. Woke up this morning and thought "what a great day to stay in with a good book and cup of coffee". But then I thought about puppy and kitten kisses and hugs and walking with Momma, Pop, Bob, and Georgett. So I am up and on my way to the shelter. How about you? Want some puppy love and kitten kisses? Come on out to the shelter this weekend. We will be open today and Monday 10 AM til 4 PM.

Lap Baby is for adoption. This is a female young pup maybe 4 to 5 months old. Shouldn't get much larger. So loves to sit in your lap and give kisses.We just do not get many of these this young. Great time to get a small house dog. Very laid back and reserved.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
