    (CBS) Household pets may be the recession's forgotten victims. When families can't afford them, they're often abandoned. But hundreds are getting a second chance thanks to guardian angels with big hearts, and the American spirit, as CBS News correspondent Cynthia Bowers reports.

    Inside a Peoria, Ill. house is an orphanage of sorts - a place where Jennifer Brackney cares for the homeless. They just happen to be dogs and cats.

    "People say you can't help all of them, you can't make that big of a difference," Brackney said. "The way we look at it you may not be able to save everyone but we save one and we make a difference in that dog's life and that puppy's life and that is incredibly rewarding."
