Timi’s Story

My name is Timi and I’m from LA. A wonderful lady, Traci Jean Gallegos-Schuver, rescued me from a high kill shelter. I don’t know why I was taken there but she was my guardian angel and saved me so I could be happy and live free.

My daddy knows Traci and saw my pic on her rescue site, Saving Imperial Rescue. He said when he saw me that he fell in love with me immediately. He asked Traci if he could adopt me and fly me to Atlanta to be his special little man.

I flew to Atlanta in August of 2017. My daddy said he was adopting me but I know better. God brought me into his life to save him through the hard times he had gone through with his health and almost dying. I loved being by my daddy’s side 24/7 and I know he loved me. He took care of me, loved me unconditionally (I taught him that. That’s what we dogs do best) and he protected me. In 2019, I could tell something was wrong with me. Daddy took me to Ansley Animal Clinic for another check-up. They said I had developed a heart murmur. When they told my daddy he cried. I wanted to let him know I would be okay and that we now both had heart conditions.

I had three occasions of congestive heart failure. My daddy rushed me to the hospital every time and the doctors (angels) saved my life each time. In June of 2020, I had my last congestive heart failure and the doctors said it was time for me to be with my friends in heaven and God.

I now look out for my daddy from heaven.

I hear him say that I changed his life. He says now we will change other babies ‘ lives and their parents. I love you daddy and will watch over you until you come and be home with me.

Provides Me With So Much Comfort

Growing up in the country there were always dogs and cats running around outside of my parents house. Once I became an adult and moved into the real world I just didn’t have the time to take on the responsibility of owning my own pet. About 5 years ago a small kitten somehow found its […]

Sam & Harlem

I’m writing this letter on behalf of my beloved husband who passed away 6 months ago to cancer. My husband’s battle with cancer was a long and hard struggle. We were both on disability and barely able to make ends meet even way before we received the news of his illness. My husband was never […]

Keeping Henry Where He Belonged

When asked to write a few lines about how the PALS program impacts my life with my best friend Henry, my only concern was how could I express my love and gratitude to such an amazing organization in only a few lines. I am a 89 year old very private women and never ask for […]

Mr. Addison & Sammy

There is nothing worse than knowing that you have a pet that needs care and you cannot provide because your disability check is gone before you even receive it. This was my dilemma seven years ago when I happened to hear about Pets Are Loving Support. My pet was two years old when I was […]
