Sometimes we limit our expectations of people who have had more than their share of challenges in life. If you met Wesley, a resident of our transitional housing home in Bel Air, you would think twice about doing that.
Wesley loves dogs—really loves dogs. He wanted to find a way to help homeless dogs, so he took the initiative to do some research and found information online about the wonderful shelter , in Edgewood.
He filled out the volunteer application, was accepted, and began volunteering. He described to us what a wonderful place Luna’s House is for animals and humans alike.
Having just bought a house, and no longer restricted from being a pet owner as a renter, I was looking around for the right shelter to find a pet. Naturally I picked Luna’s House to check out, and adopted my pets there.
They really love Wesley at Luna’s House, and ask about him when I stop in to buy pet supplies. Lisa, the director, asked me how Wesley got to Luna’s House to volunteer, since he lives in Bel Air. They were amazed when I told them he took the bus and then rode his bike the rest of the way. Even as he completes a job training program that will open new doors for him, he remains faithful to his beloved dogs at Luna’s House.
Welcome One Emergency Shelter and Luna’s House are planning a fund raiser together for next February that will benefit our shelter and transitional housing residents and the animals awaiting a loving home at Luna’s House.
Never underestimate the power of one to change their corner of the world and make it a better place.
