Norman Says...

Foster Manley

Manley the blind Boston Terrier, was found wandering the streets of Long Island, alone, on a rainy night. A good Samaritan stopped and picked him up and rescued him and contacted the NEBTR, where Jane Tirc provided a warm and comforting foster home.

A story has now been written about Manley for the Amityville Record. Attached is a copy of that story. The story was written by one of the wonderful people who came to his rescue. It's a great one, and Manley thanks everyone who helped save him with endless kisses!

Foster Rosie

And thank you to Amy for fostering her!

Rescue Me

Rescue me not only with your hands but with your heart as well. I will respond to you.
Rescue me not out of pity but out of love. I will love you back.
Rescue me not with self-righteousness but with compassion. I will learn what you teach.
Rescue me not because of my past but because of my future. I will relax and enjoy.
Rescue me not simply to save me but to give me a new life. I will appreciate your gift.
Rescue me not only with a firm hand but with tolerance and patience. I will please you.
Rescue me not only because of who I am but who I'm to become. I will grow and mature.
Rescue me not to revere yourself to others but because you want me. I will never let you down.
Rescue me not with a hidden agenda but with a desire to teach me to trust. I will be loyal and true.
Rescue me not to be chained or to fight but to be your companion. I will stand by your side.
Rescue me not to replace one you've lost but to soothe your spirit. I will cherish you.
Rescue me not to be your pet but to be your friend. I will give you unconditional love.
