Many years ago, to my utter surprise considering my background of neglecting my childhood dog and not being a dog lover in the least, I rescued my first dog – and then the next one, and the next, and on and on. The first one I called Miracle, and so began what became over 15 years of sold-out, over-the-top, dog rescue. I started a rescue group, a low-cost spay neuter clinic, planted the seed and organized some wonderful people for a high-volume low-cost spay neuter clinic, and continued in full force with dog rescue.
As it became abundantly clear that my life’s calling is in fact as an evangelist and author, it became increasingly clear that full-force rescue was in fact not the life’s calling many might have believed that it was. Long story short, the Lord made it clear over time that part of my ministry work would include providing sanctuary-style care for a limited number of special needs and senior rescued dogs, but that I would no longer be in the traditional animal rescue “business” of rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing homeless dogs by fostering and adopting them out. He also made it clear that the very special dogs in my care would in fact have a number of purposes, the most important one being to be used to open people’s hearts to hear about the Lord. I was quite surprised to realize that there in fact were eight reasons these dogs had landed in my life, and these purposes can be seen HERE.
That said, while I no longer take in new dogs, and while I no longer have a traditional fostering and adoption program, I am wide open to the Lord’s will should He send someone along who might be interested in fostering or adopting one of the ministry’s dogs. If you are interested in that possibility and would like to get more information on the ministry’s dogs and to discuss the possibility of filing out an application, you can feel free to get in touch with me at 843-338-2219 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
