On this Valentine's Day we celebrate the love shown to Stanley the Boxer who was abandoned at the NYC AC&C and by the grace of Boxer Angels Rescue (BAR) in N. Bellmore, Long Island, Stanley was pulled off the kill list and taken in by his foster mama Katie. Sadly, Stanley would not be able to recover from the conditions that were causing him pain, which included a 5 pound tumor on his leg. The decision was made to help him go to Spirit just a few days after his rescue. In that time though there is no doubt that Stanley was shown the greatest of love, kindness and care from so many in the rescue community.
The world is a better place because of rescues like BAR that not only rescue 'adoptable' dogs but also senior, hospice and special needs dogs, dogs who would usually be overlooked.
Run free handsome Stan. If you see my Boxer angel Maddy, give her a kiss for me.
Happy Valentine's Day everybody. Be true to yourself and everything else will follow.
