Today I was going through some old rescue folders, I found something I once wrote, way back, when I first started animal rescue.
Someone asked me….
SO WHAT IS RESCUE?
This is what I told them, I feel the same holds true today, maybe even more so…
Do you care about
The future of our children?
Do you care when a sentient being is
Have you ever looked into the eyes of another and seen nothing but, fear, desperation, and hopelessness?
Have you looked at a dead body and felt empathy for the one who has passed?
I HAVE, and it burns into my very soul.
All of the above are the very reasons I do animal rescue.
I want our future generations to grow up knowing the same love and companionship of an animal as I did.
I do not want to see a future with no trees, no grass.
I want a future with birds, wildlife.
When a living, feeling, emotional life form is suffering I want to help
I want to stop the pain.
I want to stop the bleeding and offer comfort.
I want to offer shelter from the winds, the snow, and the sun.
I want to calm the fears.
I want to fill the empty stomachs.
I want to ease the fears, quell the unending flow of desperation, and assure all that there really is no need to feel alone, without hope.
I want to be able to look at a dead body, and while still feeling great sorrow at the worlds loss; I want to be able to say, This is how our higher power meant this life to be lived, and how it was meant to end.
This is why I help animals. This is why I do rescue.
THIS IS RESCUE.
Rescue is not just about animals; it is about our future, our childrens future, and the future of the earth, as we know it.
But I can not do it alone I need your help.
So ask me questions, I will answer as best I can, all I ask in return is that you approach me with an open heart and mind.
