A few weeks ago, a friend shared an article on Facebook from The Columbus Dispatch about Dave and Jill Cottone, a Dublin, OH, couple who created a small non-profit nearly three years ago to honor their dog's memory. The name of the organization is the Sedona Grace Foundation and the mission is to keep pets with their families and out of shelters by providing canine and feline care packages to owners who are struggling financially. Below is an excerpt from the Dispatch story:
Like many other people who lose pets, Dave and Jill Cottone thought their dog left them too soon.
I thought this was a lovely testament to the impact that our pets have on our lives and was a great example of two people who showed tremendous character in the wake of tragedy. It's also beautiful to see that Sedona's life will never be forgotten, and her memory is saving the lives of countless other animals, plus allowing the bond between pets and their owners to continue even on hard times.
