A Rescuer’s Creed – VIDEO
A rescuer is a special breed… they dedicate themselves, their hearts, even to the last dollar in their pockets… they toil, they suffer, their heart breaks… they fight a never ending fight… and in the end, they may not be able to save them all but they make a difference… every day they make a difference…
To all those who are going out today to save a life… who go out every day… you are blessed… you are respected… you are loved and cherished more than you know… For all those times you never hear it… Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
I promise I will take your unwanted animals.
I will heal their wounds, their diseases, their broken bones.
I will give them the medical attention they need and deserve.
I will nurture their starvation and give them a warm place to sleep.
I will spay and neuter them, vaccinate them against the diseases that can harm them.
I will treat them and honor them.
I will buy them toys, blankets, balls and teach them to play.
I will speak softly to them.
I will try to teach them not to fear, not to cry and not to hate.
I will whisper sweet, kind, gentle words into their ears, while gently trying to stroke their fear, their pain and their scars away.
I will face their emotional scars and give them time to overcome them.
I will socialize them, potty train them, teach them to be obedient, show them dignity
I will hold their paws and stroke their ears if they have endured too much and walk them over the Rainbow Bridge
But most of all, I will teach them love
