When people are asked to explain the meaning of kindness, you’ll often hear responses that talk about how selfless, compassionate, and giving a person is. People will say kind people go above and beyond themselves to help others, even when it’s at their own expense at times. Thayne Hamilton and his late wife, Christine, perfectly exemplify this description of kindness.
Over the past 12 years, the duo has rescued over forty elderly dogs from kill shelters all across the country. After caring for so many dogs that have gone through neglect and abuse, Thayne understands just how much love an old dog can give. Thayne And Christine Founded The Grey Muzzle Rescue & Sanctuary In Orcas Island, Washington, In Order To Give Elderly Dogs A Second Chance At Life. One Of The Rescued Dogs They Have Saved Is Lilla. She Had Previously Been Chained Up For 14 Years. When She Arrived, She Was In Terrible Condition And Her Legs Were Essentially Glued To Her Body. Thayne Was Undeterred And Helped Her Move Around With A Wheelbarrow.
