There are many people in the world who dedicate themselves to a cause, to something tangible and real. They’ll never be rich or famous – and don’t look for those things in life. They seek instead to serve and to make a difference in the quality of life for the rest of us. They work quietly and diligently behind the scenes in the work of saving souls – saving the lives of animals. They rescue, care for, train, foster and find forever homes for these wonderful beings who have been entrusted into mankind’s care. There’s an old saying about man rescuing animals but in reality, the animals are rescuing us. I personally have seven rescues in my own home – 4 dogs, 2 cats and a turtle. These are my babies and I could not imagine my life without them. I humbly bow and thank people like Deidre for the endless work that they do so that the rest of us can benefit. – Tomaca
” I have been in the world of rescue for about three years now and I have found my soul while doing it.” – Deidre
I was born saving animals, I swear it’s a gene. Growing up in a small town in the middle of nowhere, animals in need constantly found me as if they knew my weakness for them. From a snake freezing on my pond, to a baby goat saved from a slaughter farm that I bottle fed on my couch, to a squirrel who fell out of his nest and hopped around the beams of my house like it was his tree, my earliest memories are filled with stories of rescuing animals who lost their way.
