    A great big THANK YOU to the trooper who took care of the owners beloved pet. This shows he/she has a big, caring heart. God Bless and protect them and their fellow officers each day as they do their job to protect us.

    I hope the person recovers quickly. Thank you rescuers. I feel sure the owner of the dog will be forever grateful you took care of their pet. I know I would be.

    I’m glad the dog was rescued so when the owner recovers they’ll have him/her to go home to. As a foster mom for a local rescue I’ve seen.and heard of people getting in an accident,their dog gets scared and runs away. Most of these people never see their pet again. In fact, we bought harnesses that attach to the seat belts for all 8 of our own dogs .
