    Special to The Trimble Banner

During this time my husband I have rescued seven dogs of various breeds and in various stages of health.  Homeless cats have also joined our family. On average at least one cat has appeared on our doorstep every year. Fortunately, we’ve managed to rehome some dogs or accommodate these new family members and to provide for them.
