Benji, so the rescuers had heard, lived his entire life on the street. Wary of people, no one was ever able to get near enough to him, but finally a rescue happened. Benji’s reaction was what one might expect, but he soon learned what the touch of a kind human hand could mean.
Living Free Animal Sanctuary has a mission, as do all rescues, but this one has more than just themselves in mind. The Almost Home 2020 initiative has a clear objective, but it is not one they can do alone. This multi-pronged plan targets the ending of shelter euthanasia in the United States by the year 2020, effectively turning all shelters into “no-kill,” shelters and working to encourage people who want pets to visit their local shelters and rescues before going elsewhere.
