Finley was found as a stray tied to a pole in a small park in a crime ridden area of Chicago. Once at Chicago Animal Care and Control it was discovered she was pregnant. This tugged at my heart strings, because it took me a few years to finally have my baby and I feel all moms regardless of species deserve to have their babies in a safe place free from stress. This fur mamma deserved to have her babies in a warm quiet home and her babies to be given a environment free from sickness and loved. Mending hearts rescue was the only rescue able and willing to take in Finley and her pups. Without them this mom would have had her babies in the shelter exposed to sickness. I promised myself that whichever rescue provided this beautiful family a chance at happiness, then in return I would compete in a triathlon and raise at least $1000. Please help me reach my goal and give back to this caring rescue Mending Hearts. Thank you in advance!
