The pictures here are of Shadow, who ended up at the Habitat for Horses in Hitchcock, TX.   She was found wandering in the woods because someone didn't care enough to take care of her.  She had cancer and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on January 3, 2000.  Click here to read her complete story.  Pictures used with permission of  Habitat for Horses.

Rescue Me
By Terri Onorato

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.
I will cherish you.

Rescue me not to be your pet but to be your friend.
I will give you my undying love.
