We're walking for the homeless pets!

My husband and I are excited to participate in this year's Bark in the Park and join hundreds of walkers and their dogs to raise money for homeless animals on October 3 in Chesapeake, VA. This is a passion that is very dear to our hearts.

We've named our team Gehron's Comet in honor of our newly-adopted beagle, Comet. We adopted Comet from the Chesapeake Animal Control in June. He was surrendered by a family who couldn't take care of him anymore. Getting Comet was one of the best decisions we've ever made! He has been a blessing to us.

There are many homeless, loving animals in the shelter that are patiently waiting to find their “furever” home. We believe these homeless pets deserve a second chance to be given a decent home, a family and for them to show their unconditional love. As the Bible tells us, those who realize their need to be rescued will in turn show all the more love towards he/she who rescued them (Luke 7:40-47). Any adopted-pet owner has and continues to experience this love from their rescued pet.

Help us save more lives like Comet! Your donation will go a long way in caring for the homeless animals and helping them find a home. The Chesapeake Humane Society works and struggles to find loving homes for these animals. But because they do not receive any government subsidies, they are completely dependent upon private donors, such as you, for its funding.
