Why I Rescue – Diary of a Dog Rescuer

People often ask, “Why Do You Rescue?”

Well, it’s certainly not for the hot guys, ha! I think this photo sums it up. To me, life is about making a difference and giving back. Some help the old, hungry, or homeless. Others, like myself, are drawn to furless gargoyles!


We may think life’s reward is in designer shoes or fancy cars but I’ve been there, and trust me, it makes no difference. They are just things. No heart beat to connect with yours.  What will truly warm your cockles is seeing light return to neglected eyes, and watching the joy blossom. The icing on the cake is finding an amazing, loving home that will continue to nurture the furry soul you love.  What a score. THAT is why I rescue.

So, if you’re feeling down, or looking for meaning, in the words of that famous philosopher Diana Ross, “Reach out and touch somebody’s hand…” Or paw.
