Thanksgiving dawned bright and beautiful for the German Shepherd christened
Lucas in North Carolina. After being found tied to a bumper of a firetruck, 
emaciated beyond belief and covered in bedsores, Thursday morning found him on 
a warm bed of quilts with a full stomach and lots of loving care. This miracle 
was possible due to the consistent support and compassion of people on this 
list. LHSH was able to cover his medical bills up to this point (a total of 
600$), and is continuing to work closely with "A Shelter Friend's" Krista 
Hansen who has committed to this sweet soul. He is still experiencing some 
gastric issues; and Dr. Gensel hopes to soon have this under control.

It seems that Lucas has made some strong bonds with his friends at the 
Elizabethtown Veterinary hospital and pines for them when he is away.
His will be a long road back from the brink; and Krista is hoping for a loving 
family with perhaps a space on the couch for this dog who has endured so much. 
His personality is beginning to emerge and he is enthusiastically attempting to 
play with the other dogs on Krista's farm.

LHSH has been informed that Cole; the Rescue dog with the entropion issues is 
now a full fledged TRUFFLE dog! He now has a job locating truffles for 
harvesting and is loving every minute of it. Cole was facing euthanasia at the 
Bladen County shelter in NC when Krista found him. With financial assistance 
from LHSH and AGSRA, Cole was able to have his entropion surgery relieving him 
from the pain that he had suffered for his entire life. He has no obviously 
found his niche! 

We at LHSH are aware of the financial issues many of us are facing; and are 
deeply appreciative of the fact that even with the economic downturn, we have 
been able to continually serve those in desperate need.
Lucas is representative of the many dogs who are still waiting silently for 
help...Please consider them as you go about preparing for the Holidays. We are 
their voice...and you have heard their cries.
With our most sincere thanks for your continued support...
The Team From Last Hope, Safe Haven Inc.
