Why We Do What We Do

why we doUntil you have held a tiny puppy in your arms as it kissed your face with slobbery puppy breath and felt the love,

Until you have held a severely ill or injured dog in your arms and felt their pain,

and until you have looked into the eyes of a tired, aging senior dog and felt their wisdom, you will never understand the life of a rescuer.

We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces.

It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, sadness and defeat and find the true soul that lies within.

We are rescue.
