The 2019 Small Paws Rescue Holiday Online Auction is In It’s Last Three Days!

Jody Ferraro, our Auction Webmistress, told me on Wednesday, the day that she buried Steve, her husband, that all she really wanted was for this auction to do well, in Steve’s memory. She has worked on it each day while making funeral preparations, since he passed. She worked on it yesterday, Thanksgiving. I hope we can make this the best auction ever, for Jody and Steve. Ok. Here we go.

Humphrey Sisco
Dec 26, 1993~ Aug 30, 2006 Pet Loss Link

When I first saw this beautiful picture of Cheri Sisco’s “Humphrey”, I thought it was truly the epitome of what we do, and why we do it. I wanted to use this black and white picture of Humphrey, taken only days before his death due to congestive heart failure, to let those who may be new to Small Paws, know what we do and why we do it. Without Small Paws, Humphrey would have never known love. He would have died in a kill shelter, sick and alone. Because of Small Paws, and Cheri Sisco, he lived, he loved, and he smiled.
