STORY: Rescuer Jumps into Traffic to Rescue Stray Dog

Here's the beginning of an amazing and touching rescue story:

About 10 weeks ago I was on my way back from Atlanta to my home in the North Georgia Mountains above the small former gold rush town of Dahlonega, GA. As I stopped at a traffic signal for a very busy 3 way intersection for three major four lane highways when on the grass island in the middle of this hectic and dangerous intersection I was horrified to see a German Shepherd Dog who was pacing back and forth on the grass island. Obviously frightened to death it appeared to be extremely emaciated and was holding up it's left hind leg not putting any weight on it or touching it to the ground, leading me to believe the leg had been injured.http://www.animalrescuechase.com/rescue_showcase/story.php?id=806

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
