Gracie, our beloved, beautiful friend who was so gentle and loving had to be put to sleep yesterday (05/03/2012). Those of us who tried so desperately to save her, despite all of our efforts combined... Gracie could not overcome her compromised immune system and due to years of abuse, her heart could no longer sustain life. She was a real lover, always happy to see a caring face and eager to give a gentle kiss and wag her tail to show her appreciation for just a simple pat on the head and a loving voice that said "It'll be OK Gracie, just hang in there girl". We will miss her dearly and she will be a reminder forever in our hearts that our animals are our family. Every abused animal deserves help and we need to continue to work together to stop this very thing that killed this beautiful creature
