I am an animal rescuer
I am an animal rescuer.

I will never bring about world peace. I will not save the rain forest.

I'm not a brain surgeon and I'll never transplant an organ to save a life.

I don't have the ear of a powerful politician or world power.

I can't end world hunger.

I'm not a celebrity, and God knows I'm not glamorous!

I'm not looked up to by millions around the world. Very few people even recognize my name.

I'll never win the Nobel prize.

I'll never save the rain forest or end global warming.

There are a lot of things that I'll never do or become.

But today I placed a dog!

It was a small, scared, bundle of flesh and bones that was dropped off in a shelter by unfeeling people that didn't care what happened to it, but yet who were responsible for it even having existence in the first place.

I found it a home. 
It now has contentment and an abundance of love. A warm place to sleep and plenty to eat. A child has a warm fuzzy new friend who will give them unquestioning devotion and teach them about responsibility and love.

A wife and mother has a new spirit to nurture and care for. A husband and a father has a companion to sit at his feet at the end of a hard day of work and help him relax and enjoy life. And a sense of security, that when he is gone all day at work, that there is a protector and a guardian in his home to keep watch over his family.

No, I'm not a rocket scientist but today I saved one of God's precious creatures. Today, I made a difference!

I Am An Animal Rescuer.

My job is to assist God's creatures. I was born with the need to fulfill their needs. I take in new family members without plan, thought or selection. I have bought dog food with my last dime. I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand. I have hugged someone vicious and afraid. I have fallen in love a thousand times and I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body.

I have Animal Friends and friends who have Animal Friends. I don't often use the word "pet." I notice those lost at the road side and my heart aches. I will hand raise a field mouse and make friends with a vulture. I know of no creature unworthy of my time.

I want to live forever if there aren't animals in Heaven but I believe there are!
Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind?

We may be master of the animals, but the animals have mastered themselves. Something people still haven't learned.

War and abuse make me hurt for the world but a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for humankind. 
We are a quiet but determined army and making a difference every day.

There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan. Nothing more rewarding than saving a life. No higher recognition than watching them thrive. There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play who only days ago, was too weak to eat.

I am an Animal Rescuer.

My work is never done. My home is never quiet. My wallet is always empty, but my heart is always full.

In the game of life, I have already won!

I Rescued A Human Today

I rescued a human today.
> Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering
> apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I
> had to help her.
> I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. As
> she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I
> had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't
> been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I
> didn't want her to think poorly of them.
> As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about
> my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a
> difference in someone's life.
> She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I
> shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort
> her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for
> companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to
> assure her that all would be well.
> Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I
> instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I
> would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do
> everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.
> I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are
> out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved.
> At least I could save one.

Take Action! Alaska is the only state in the U.S. where a few hunters still use aircraft to shoot wolves from the air or chase them to exhaustion before landing and shooting them point blank.
But the practice of "denning" - the killing of wolf young in the den - is prohibited even under Alaska law.
