rescue is a brutal business. you can only do what you can do, and there is a never-ending stream of those who need help. you must go in at the beginning with the knowledge, and remind yourself often, that YOU CAN'T HELP THEM ALL. you have to develop a really high tolerance for man's inhumanity to animals. you have to always hope for the best but prepare for the worst in all your rescue endeavors. when it gets overwhelming you have to take a break...sometimes short, sometimes long...always educate those who don't know about the fabulous dogs available in rescue, and how important rescue is, educate those who don't know about the importance of spay/neuter. always envision better days ahead for animals as the word spreads...give whatever you can until that happens and know that you're workin' with the ones who wear the white hats.
i SO HOPE there is someone out there for momma-dog and her fifteen tiny babies.
