This is a profile from our “You Rescue Me” contest, which ran in early 2014. This particular entry won third prize, a $250 donation to HELP Humane Society in Belton, Missouri.
Dakota came into my life from a rescue organization, to live with me and three cats. I have worked most of my adult life for a home of my own and once here, had it broken into twice within a year, once when I was home. I became afraid to come home at night, and was in fear of giving up my home. Dakota changed all that, and now we all live in peace and comfort knowing he (and his rescued sister) are always on the job.
