MAIN LINE RESCUE INC
January 10, 2011

I became aware of Main Line Animal Rescue when my wife and I were ready to adopt a dog in July 2010, we went to their website to look at who was available. We put in an application for a black lab named Rex and got a call from Helen to set up our appointment for the following Saturday. We came out to their facitlity which is truely a beautiful farm in Chester Springs, PA and got to walk through the kennel with Megan the kennel manager who was helping us with our adoption. We talked for probably about 20 minutes about our lifestyle and then got to meet Rex. We realized with Megan's help that while we loved him and he was a great dog, he wasn't right for our lifestyle. We are always on the go and do not have a lot of space and a lot of breakables in the house!! She asked us to trust her and showed us a 10 lb. Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix that ended up stealing our hearts. Just like other rescues they had to check our references and make sure that our fence was secure. Bill Smith, the founder, came out himself to check our fence and we just happened to be outside when he got here. We ended up talking to Bill for about an hour and learned more about what they do and how they do it. I had seen him featured on Oprah so we talked about the horrible puppy mills that he is trying to draw attention to and put an end to terrible conditions that these animals are forced to live in.



Because of this wonderful experience I attended their annual fundraiser in September called the Wag N' Train. it was western themed and a lot of fun! We will be adopters and donors to Main Line Animal Rescue for years to come.
