Amazing 81 Year Old Woman saves 800 dogs in 7 years!
illi News/10029436

CHICAGO - illiNews -- Have you ever met a woman who is so driven that she is able to do things that are insurmountable to most people?  A woman so humble she never asks for money or allows you to sing her praises?  A woman who is widowed and 81 years old, with 4 knee replacements and a recent back surgery, who never complains and always says 'yes' to any dog whether unwanted, abused or unloved?   A woman with a reputation for great strength and endurance, praised by her volunteers, who share stories of trying to keep up with her passion and work pace?  A woman who has been called the 'Mother Theresa of Dogs' because of her life-long devotion to all those who are in her care?

Let me introduce you to Gail Ross of 'Gail's Pets Second Chance'.  Gail is beloved in the Ozark Mountains of North Central Arkansas for her remarkable love of dogs. As a no-kill shelter for the last 20 years, dogs that are abandoned, abused or unwanted end up on her doorstep. Just to get a perspective, in the last 7 years, Gail has adopted out 815 dogs to forever homes. Gail has also turned her house into a home for all dogs who are deemed too old, too ill or have been through too much abuse to be adopted. These dogs become her 'personal dogs' and are loved by her and cared for all the days of their lives.  They roam her beautiful log cabin, enjoying coolness from the tile floors in the summers when temperatures near 100 degrees and warmth in the winter months curled up beside the fireplace.  The sign on the front door sums it up well: "Saving one dog will not change the world – but for that one dog the world will be forever changed."
