We went past an empty cage with a sign on it saying “Dog For Free”. There was not a dog inside the cage and we had lots of

Molly’s Amazing Rescue


4 years ago, While driving Down State Road 44 I saw her, she was just standing on the white line of the road….it was February, and very cold.  She was picking at something dead. Thin, dirty, and full of milk from puppies, clearly she had been dumped. I don’t know what happened to the puppies, they weren’t with her.  I pulled over and she was SO excited that someone stopped, I started to cry as she jumped all over me, Now we’re both covered in dirt.  I opened my door and she jumped in. I headed right to my vet.
