Compassionate 12 year old boy, Jack McPadden, would like nothing more than to see his neighbor’s near blind dog, Brody, someday cured of a disease that threatens his eyesight.
Determined to help, Jack recently appealed to his schoolmates and raised $211.05 toward anticipated veterinary bills, coupled with an additional $100 from his own family and that is just a start, he says.
Jack will be thrilled when Brody can see again, but he will never actually see it himself. That is because ever since he was 9 months old, Jack himself has been totally blind.

when i went in and rescued this wonderful creature she was recovering from a hit-and-run car accident. she had no one and no home as winter just began. now she’s nice and plump and has her pick of any food, bed, blanket, treat she wants and she has my heart.
i used to think i saved her, but she saved me.

This is the sweet and amazing pit bull Carter. He was abused as a puppy  and his abuser left his broken femur untreated for 5 months. When he was  rescued they thought his right rear leg would have to be amputated. But  after surgery and a lot of rehab he regained the use of the leg!  Unfortunately there was some irreversible damage to both back legs, so  his new mom who works for OrthoPets had some braces made for him. Now he  is running around like a crazy boy and hopes to one day be a therapy  dog!  He loves life and lives every moment to the fullest. He is a great  example of how we all should live our life!
