Letter: Thank you to Fishers residents

I am so very thankful and deeply humbled by the overwhelming response of the residents of Fishers and the surrounding area to the plea for help to find and capture my 15-month-old puppy, Toots. For three days in the bitter cold, an amazing number of dog lovers put forth an unbelievable effort to help! Dr. Johnson and the Parkside Animal Hospital Crew, volunteers from the Humane Society, a leader from the Episcopal Church and a neighbor, Julie; Cheryl, Kellie, and Angie with FIDO, dog walkers, joggers, the Postman, two ladies who printed and hung posters, Dan setting food out, Lacey offering her backyard for a feeding station, Erin and Todd tracking and containing Toots, and many, many caring folks who walked and drove, searching effortlessly for my pup … I thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

The VCA at 96th Street and Hague is excellent. Thanks to the kind and compassionate staff … Lacey and Dr. Brown, who checked Toots and said she only had soft tissue injury, even after being hit by a car.

I can never thank the wonderful people of Fishers enough for all their prayers and help! This was truly a Christmas Miracle, as Toots would not have survived a third night out in the sub-zero temperatures. Thanks be to God!

Toots is now safely home, warm and recovering very well. All the best wishes to each of you in this happy New

Year and our deepest, most sincere thanks!

Margie Kilgus and Toots, Zionsville
