Happy New Year! Our holiday decorations have been put away, binging on delicious meals and treats has subsided and the rush of shopping and traveling has slowed down. What has not slowed down or ended is the giving spirit of the residents and businesses of Mesquite.
As I begin this new year I am happy to say that I had the great pleasure to work with our wonderful Mesquite Animal Shelter in a very personal way. I have been waiting for a very special rescue dog to come my way. In late November I adopted my Golden Retriever the shelter had named Bones. (The name was very appropriate.) The shelter could have easily chosen to put the dog down but the love and care of all of the volunteers and staff did not want this to happen so they spent their own money to send her to the vet to have her taken care of. Thanks to those volunteers and a few weeks of food and love she is beginning to thrive. “Lucy” is the sweetest dog and I hope to have her for many years to come. If you have a chance to rescue an animal or help out at the shelter I encourage you to do so.
