Since 2004, Leonard has traveled from Wisconsin to Maine to Florida in his own van, at his own expense. . . . . driving animals to safety for Southern shelters who would have had no choice but to put the animals to sleep. The number is in the thousands as his van will hold about 50 dogs each trip and Leonard, now, has 300,000 miles on that old "dog" van. But just mention a transport to "it" and "it " is up for the job because Leonard has replaced the transmission, wheel bearings, tires many times and made front end and back end repairs. . . . again, with little to no help from any of us.
Leonard can be caught helping people, too. He's been encouraging and mentoring a few troubled youths in his neighborhood; friending a mentally handicapped youth who has no Dad and when adults stop by asking for work . . . .he can always "find" a project they can complete, for which he gives them a good day's wage.
Now, Leonard needs us. He is retired and has only his military pension which isn't much since he retired many years ago. Since his wife passed away several years ago, it is only Leonard and the dogs . . . .but they need their home back. They will not be allowed back in until the house is repaired AND brought up to code.
If you have been blessed by circumstances or by God and able to share
your "wealth" . . . please think about giving a donation to help Leonard repair
his, and the dogs', home. The collection plate is passed every Sunday for
just this purpose . . .except to whom your generous gift is going, you do not
know. This time, you do. . . . . he is "one of our own" and he needs
