But this one represents the North Shore Animal League. I did some research, and found the following history ...
For the past 65 plus years, the North Shore Animal League America has been the largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization in the world, housing an average of 300 animals at any given time. As of the end of 2008, the Animal League had found homes for nearly one million dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. However, this exciting achievement did not happen overnight. The road was long and the efforts great. Many dedicated individuals shared their passion and perseverance in making North Shore Animal League America what it is today.

Having lived in Germany for 3 years, the message in this card surprised me. I guess in 1954 the Germans were a lot less receptive to the American presence than they were in the mid- to late 1980's.
On the other hand, for a member of the military to be able to afford a huge house complete with maid and gardening service? Wow. We had a tiny apartment in the basement of a house on a hill overlooking a small town complete with castle. No maid.
But the German family who lived in the house loved Americans and made us feel welcome in their tiny little town.
The people who wrote this card didn't want to stay ...
We didn't want to leave!

This handmade Valentine from 1931 is so delicate. The arrow is cut from very thin paper, and passes through tiny slits in the heart.
