There are many deplorable and shockingly cruel things happening to dogs every day.  Yet, countless volunteers are doing everything they can to rescue and find homes for dogs.  They are indeed ascribing to the following:

"Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good."

           -Romans 12:21

Whatever way you can make a contribution to the effort to save more un- wanted pets will also be helping to over come evil
  with good.

"Commit to the Lord what ever you do, and your plans will succeed."

            -Proverbs 16:3

"God is able to  accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to hope or ask."

           -Ephesians 3:20

 "Look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others."

            -Philippians 2:4
