Time Magazine. Strays to the Rescue. A Photo Essay.

Time Magazine has come out with a photo essay on rescued dogs who have, through their humans, contributed to societal good in one form or another. The stories come from a book entitled, To the Rescue: Found Dogs with a Mission by Elise Lufkin. The photographs were by Diana Walker. Each individual case warms the heart and underscores the fact that a human-animal relationship could be the very best relationship one, or many, could possibly have on this Earth. Read through each case and come out even more assured that dogs do have a special and comforting role in our society. These examples of harmony between dogs and humans make it ever so clear that abusing a dog, or any animal for that matter, is disrespectful, indecent, inhumane and outright barbaric. Tell me how you treat an animal and I will tell you who you are.

If you're wanting even more stories about dogs who found their purpose in life, check out Angel Dogs with a Mission by Allen & Linda Anderson, published by New World Library (publishers of The Power of Now). You'll read about a cancer sniffing dog, an avalanche rescue dog, a dog who did search and rescue at the Twin Towers on 9-11, and the first dog to ever be trained to help a person with mobility impairment. Truly a set of true, heartwarming stories!
