The Animal Assistance Group (TAAG) was founded in 1991 by a group of women who had a deeply rooted desire to help animals in need. For many years, close friends Marg Macreath, Gladys Bennett, Betty Breed, Eleanor Dunn and Christa Dilanzo, worked tirelessly to find alternatives to the high cost of spay and neuter services. Their work and dedication has created the foundation of what is now known as TAAG.
Today, The Animal Assistance Group continues to help people and their pets throughout our community.
A starving dog should never go hungry, and never go cold
No pet should be forgotten because they were old
There should not be a cat to roam as a stray
They have no silver lining all their clouds are dirty and gray
But I am just one little girl merely a child
So why are my dreams so dumb and so wild?
To give a home to every stray
To warm the ice cold hearts that throw them away
Because they were too old to play
And every stray that I might meet
I’ll find them a home and give them something to eat
But most of all I’ll give them love
Because animals are my gift from above
And now I can go back to bed
Because I’ve written down what’s in my head
The thoughts and tears that keep me awake
The wish I wish for every birthday cake
And maybe my wish will some day come true
but it’s not only up to me, it’s up to you.
