Carl — Emerging Hero

Charity Partner: Pets for Patriots
Location: Davenport, Iowa

I rescued Carl during a very difficult time in my life. Having just been diagnosed with schizophrenia and having just been released from a psychiatric hospital, I found myself moving home to live with my mom at nearly 30 years old. I had lost my career and home and car and really had lost hope for ever becoming a normally functioning member of society again. When I fist saw Carl I was suddenly filled with love and hope for my future. He suddenly gave me a reason to want to live and I woke up every morning knowing I had him to care for. It has been 6 years and I am back on my feet, in my own home, in a new career, and consider myself a highly capable and productive member of society. I have Carl to thank, and I can’t imagine where my life would be now if it weren’t for him.
