Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Okay. I'm going to admit something here. No. Well, my kids want a puppy to keep them company during the pandemic so far, though, we have held off But you, my friend have heeded the call. I did. I got a puppy on Sunday. He is amazing. I named him go, Liam. Oh. Ah, really, although that's a whole other conversation. Okay, Anyway, there's a 14 year old animal lover in San Jose Rachel, who says people should consider adopting older dogs, not just puppies. Our people to understand that, like older dogs like they should adopt a more senior dogs. I guarantee you that they will give you the same love and unconditional affection as any other dog. I believe that that's Mina Kumar. She was adopted in India and brought to the U. S. By her parents, Meena is focused on the idea of a forever home. I just feel like many senior dogs do struggle to find a forever home because of their medical conditions. I really hope that one every one of them gets a forever home, just like I did. Her mom J. Aya says It was clear early on that her daughter loved animals a dark and laid a litter of puppies. You know, in the apartment complex animal by and so we would spend hours just taking her there. She loved the puppies. But older pets really have a place in her heart like this one mud by the name of George Sr Dogs, Eircom. They remind him a grandfather who is also old, and I loved George because he was so calm and he was just a very loving and he was such a great cuddler. So Meena heard about Mudville, which is a cage free dog Rescue program for older pets. Stop it. Sherry Frankel is the founder. I started my bill about 13 years ago when there was no such thing as a senior dog rescue. Excuse me. I'm gonna have to grab this one little dog coming in Romer. She want me to start over. Meena would drop into my build a visit the senior dogs, But there was a problem. Here's mom actually immediately. She wanted to go volunteer at much well, but she was too young. Because you're only nine. She was only nine. You have to be 17 years old to volunteer there. But Meena would not be dissuaded. She came up with a plan. A great idea popped up in my head and that was to take care of dogs around my neighborhood and donate all the money. I earn too much, though she raised $14,000. My goal is to contribute 25,000 too much, though. Frankel says Meena has become something of a V I P at the rescue centre. Martha was honored to have her as a friend of my fill and also I am so happy to know her and know that there are used out there that have compassion like she does. She's a leader..
