Everyday Star

I want to do a panel on my mom’s friend, Paula Fike. She started her own dog rescue program for mostly West Highland Terriers, but she takes in other dogs as well.  She keeps the dogs at her house and washes them up and takes care of them until they are adopted.  These dogs are mostly from puppy mills, where they live in small cages and are forced to breed.  Many of them have never walked on grass before.  Often dogs come to her coated in their own filth.  Paula spends so much of her own time on these dogs, even when her own family is going through hard times.
