Our annual donation to a small, all-volunteer grassroots not-for-profit, Kindred Spirits Greyhound Adoption Inc., is always rewarded with wonderful success stories. Their compassion and tireless efforts, supported entirely by the generosity of others, make us proud to be considered a valued partner. Miller’s story is one of our favorites.
Miller was a stray picked up by animal control in South Carolina and sent to a shelter with a high “kill rate”. Although he wasn’t a greyhound, Kindred Spirits could not bear to let him languish or perish in that shelter after seeing the first picture of him. Battered, in need of medical attention, and clearly living in fear, Miller desperately needed help.
They took him in and immediately started diagnostic tests and treatment, giving him a chance to heal, both physically and emotionally. While Miller still has chronic health issues that will probably continue to plague him for the rest of his life, he improved to the point where he has a great quality of life. He has been adopted, and is now much loved by a wonderful family.
