39 Days of Rescue – Rudy

by Bob Price

  I’m Rudy! I’m sad to say that there is something wrong with my heart. It’s probably because no one cared for me while I was caged with dozens of my friends and siblings while we waited for days on end without food or water. Nice people from In Defense of Animals rescued me from […]
