After suddenly losing our precious girl Raini to cancer last fall, our family was heartbroken. But we knew Raini would want us to rescue again in her name; which is exactly what we did!  When we first met spunky Molly in March she was very anxious and underweight from parasites. We found out she was purchased as a Christmas gift, but then surrendered to AGAG shortly after the holidays.

We are thankful that she was surrendered and not abandoned. Molly leaped into our hearts and stood by her new mentor sister Mazy (8.5 years old) in late spring. Molly was painfully shy and afraid of most people, especially males. Since then she has gained the appropriate weight and is a social butterfly in the neighborhood. Molly turns to Mazy for social cues, following her through doorways, and they love to take long walks together. She is growing and learning good habits every day.

We are thrilled to have Molly as part of our family, and by the look on her face she knows she has found her forever home too.  Thank you AGAG for this wonderful opportunity to rescue again.
