It’s 10:00pm and you’re short three volunteers for tomorrow morning’s adoption event.
A dog that was due for transport in two days is sick with kennel cough.
Your rescue’s vet has sent an invoice that costs more than several months of your salary.
You found the perfect home for a dog the county shelter refuses to release.
Your foster has taken a special interest in small, shiny objects which she pilfers from your nightstand, bathroom counter, and kitchen table. You find them under the bed. In a shoe.
Our work is rewarding, but it’s stressful! And it is often sad. In our line of work, we see the results of the best and worst of humanity. Every. Single. Day.
I am a rescue dog mom, animal welfare advocate, non-profit board member, and Petfinder addict. I started a blog several months ago for those in the rescue dog world. Things crashed to a halt after my Petey died, but it’s time to start again. Because Petey would want me to.
I’d love for this blog to give those in the trenches of dog rescue a wider support community. Some of us have been in rescue for a long time. Others just a few weeks. But we are all experts on our own experiences and successes. We all need ideas, and help from time to time.
I’m inviting you to sign up for my monthly newsletter. I want this to be your newsletter, so I hope you will email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to share dog topics that are near and dear to your heart!
