When I was first let inside the house, I thought I’d hit the big time. The people that had been feeding me smiled, opened the door and I walked inside. I slept in a bed for the first time in my life.
I didn’t have to dodge cars, didn’t have to scrounge for food. I was warm and sheltered. They gave me a bowl of water and food and kisses and hugs. It was like a dream come true.
