(C.A.R.E. Name: Buster)
This update has been long overdue but never too late. My mom and I have adopted many animals from CARE through out many years and they have brought nothing but joy to our hearts. All of them have been precious to us but our most precious gift from CARE is our Shiloh Ray that we adopted back in 1997. In 1997, he was approximately three years old, severely underweight and had either been beaten or attacked by another dog to the point where he lost his eye. He sat for months in the shelter cage with no luck of adoption and throughout that time my mom fell in love & we put in for foster parents. Unfortunately, we never really made good foster parents because once he came home we knew he was never leaving. It is now 2010 and Shiloh Ray is approximately 17 years old and still melting our hearts everyday.
He has survived his many brothers and keeps his now 4 year old sister in line. Shiloh Ray has a heart of gold and the spirit of a 6 month old puppy, if it were not for his arthritis I do not know if anyone would tell that he has surpassed a Lab/Shepherds life.
My mom and I just wanted to send you are many thanks for all of our animals and our superstar Shiloh Ray. It was until this year that he attended every Strut for Strays but unfortunately his legs can not keep up with his spirit. Shiloh wants you to know that he is very grateful for you rescuing him and giving him the life he would of never had.
