Right up front, let me just say, my passion for rescue is not nearly as lengthy as Kristi’s. I stumbled across the world of rescue a few years ago thanks to the wonderful world of Facebook. The more I saw people sharing dogs in need, the more groups I started to follow. One day, a well known bomb sniffing dog by the name of Gabe shared a picture of an emaciated pit bull. This dog was given the fitting name of Hope. I was extremely shocked by her appearance and felt incredibly sad that someone could allow an animal to degrade to that type of condition. So, I watched her picture closely to see if she would be rescued. Sure enough, a wonderful lady stepped up and offered to take Hope into her rescue. I started to follow this group to be able to watch Hope’s progress. This is where my life in rescue began.
Most importantly, I love working with Kristi, Jennifer and the group of people Kristi has managed to assemble as her volunteers. They are kind, understanding and flexible. They are giving, patient and sweet. I’ve never met an easier group of individuals to work with. It’s a lot of fun to hang out with them! I consider it a privilege to be included in this group of wonderful people I now call my friends.
