Raha - Home for Life's® Fall mailing

Our fall mailing features the heartbreaking story of Raha who survived an unimaginable act of cruelty when firecrackers were put inside his mouth, his mouth taped shut and the firecrackers lit. Although Raha, whose name means peaceful and free in Persian, survived the assault, his face was terribly disfigured. Why do the nicest animals always seem to be the victims of such hostility and cruelty?

Home for Life’s Texas Connection

Raha, our new dog from Vafa Animal Shelter, who survived having firecrackers taped in his mouth, has pretty much monopolized our social media recently, and rightfully so! But we have a lot of news to share, and we want to start with one of our Texas connections, the Australian Cattle dog Outlaw, who came to Home for Life near death, blind, diabetic and suffering from EPI (endoctrine pancreatic disorder) on Labor Day 2016, just about a year ago. He originally came from Mesquite Texas, a suburb of Dallas. FYI Dallas is about 250 miles north of Houston - about the distance of Madison Wisconsin to the Twin Cities, Minneapolis-St Paul, Minnesota.
