Jeff and Cerena invite us into their home one late afternoon. They offer us Sweet Tea or Coffee and introduce us to their 2 beautiful girls, Alexis and Kendal, as well as their larger extended family which includes Princess, Sadie, Red Bear and her Majesty. These are their 4 dogs that they've opened their home to - as well as Smoky, the cat that has adopted all of them!
Jeff has been diagnosed with alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency. He travels up to Denver at least once a week to receive infusions from the VA hospital. As his illness continues to take hold of his life, he finds taking care of day-to-day activities more and more difficult. Cerena would find Jeff trying to mow the lawn while lugging his oxygen cannisters with him. Now he is much more comfortable giving Cerena and the girls direction while they take care of the day-to-day household tasks. But, that doesn't mean he doesn't miss being able to take his dogs for an afternoon hike.
Maybe this is what caught his eye when he saw the Safe Place for Pets brochure while waiting for his infusion treatment. Jeff admitted that it was not easy reaching out and accepting help, but that "doors stay closed unless you open them." He was willing to give the program a chance. Since then, Jeff has felt a huge relief as the Wellness Group helped get the dogs current with their rabies and vaccination shots and arranged for full dental work for them, and has helped out with day-to-day tasks like bringing over dog food so that the rest of the family can focus on more important things, like enjoying time spent with each other.
