I am a proud volunteer for Animal Rescue New Orleans.  This organization has done amazing things (http://whatssospecialaboutneworleans.blogspot.com/2011/08/arno-gives-new-orleans-pets-fresh.html) and is one of few in the country that rehabilitates feral dogs.  Mario is the newest feral dog member, here is his story:

Here is Mario 10 days later:

I am humbeled and more than proud to call myself an ARNO volunteer.  I just wanted to share what a little bit of hope and a whole lot of love and determination can do for one dog.  To the world he was just a dog but to him we are the world  :)

If you don't already, please consider giving to your local rescues and shelters, in any way you can.  I don't have much to offer but I open my home to foster homeless pets, I work adoption days, I share homeless pets on Facebook.  Tonight I spent the entire evening washing blankets for the ARNO shelter so the dogs would have clean blankets to keep warm for the coming cold snap.  Everyone can make a difference, a little at a time.

Good night Mario, sleep well.

 That's one thing i miss about being in the states,there's no such thing as fostering here. I was a SPCA volunteer for almost 10 years.When i lived in a place where i couldn't have animals i went to the no kill center and helped in any way i could.But once i moved into a place i started fostering. I loved it soooo much. Can't wait to be able to do it again.
