Oh, what a difference a day makes! Animal rescue can be grueling work, but nothing makes it worthwhile as much as seeing the sheer transformative joy in the face of an animal whose life has been saved by human kindness.
Case in point: Benny. Not as outgoing as some dogs--although thoroughly loving at heart--Benny's time was almost up. He'd landed at the Carson Animal Care Center, a high-kill shelter in Gardena, California. For weeks, Benny languished in his kennel, consistently overlooked. Until the day one human family showed up and said the magic words: "We're taking him home." If you can hold back happy tears at seeing Benny's unbridled ecstasy upon realizing that he has his forever family at last, you're better than we are!
The only thing as good as living with an animal is saving an animal's life. Adopting from shelters lets you do both. To learn about adopting a pet, or to find out other ways you can help, visit your local animal shelter.
