Gail Calver hasn't added a story.
My name is Gail Calver. I have dedicated my life to rescuing homeless, unwanted dogs from all over the US for over 25 years. My rescue, "Snout-in-the-House", has a nice listing of my many successes. http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/NY740.html
I love dogs and hate the future they face in kill shelters or out on the streets. Now I share their fate. After 19 years in my home, I will lose it. Bank of America is foreclosing and I must leave.
Like so many hard-working people, I fell on hard times. I became disabled after hurting my back, I have 3 slipped disks in my back and neck, need replacement surgery for both knees. I have worked every day of my life, Sometimes two jobs and now I am only 58 and find myself unemployable.
I never thought I would be in this situation and, yet, here I am. I will be homeless and never would have expected that after 25 yrs. of rescuing animals. I have 4 dogs and a blue and gold macaw that I have had for 24 yrs. Anyone who rescues or owns pets knows they are yours for life, I will not leave them and can't leave them. They are my family. I found an RV that is big enough to hold all of us without tripping over each other and I think my pups will be happy in it. I have an American Bulldog (Tugboat) an Alapaha Blueblood Bulldog (Madea) a Great Dane (Charlie) and (Chopper) a mixed breed and they are all rescues that I fell in love with and adopted personally. And I can't forget "Sachmo" my parrot.
The RV is $7000 and I am desperate to raise the money because I have no where to go.
I am pleading with fellow rescuers to please help however you can. Forget about me and save my animals. I have tried making smaller payments to Bank of America and they send them back. They now want everything or nothing. I can be happy in the RV trailer as long as I have my "family" but I have to act fast so the gal who owns it doesn't sell it.
All I can give is my undying gratitude and the promise that my animals will always be loved and cared for.
