What a week

This week was nothing but an up and down roller coaster ride. We saved 10 dogs this week from being killed and have a few more on hold that we will be getting in this week. All the shelters are FULL FULL FULL to the brim and there seems to be no end in sight. No matter what breed or mix breed it is in a shelter in Ohio! Why?? What is wrong with people?

I have 24 dogs in rescue right now with 20 of them in foster care. That is the most I have ever had in foster care. I am so thankful to all the amazing people who have stepped up and are fostering. Thanks to them we are able to save way more dogs then normal.

I am hoping to be able to save a few dogs this week.

Over all this has been a pretty good year. A lot of dogs saved.. I mean for as small of a rescue as I am. No parvo this year, nothing really too major. I mean Sparky's broken leg and let me tell you that was the WORSE weekend ever. But good things came out of that and a realization came out of that too.

I realized that there are people who do dog rescue FOR THE DOGS! And there are people who do dog rescue because they THINK they are doing it for the dogs.. what their real motive is I am not really sure. You would think that rescues would all work together but they don't. I always say being in rescue is like being in high school.. you are either a cool kid or you are an outcast. How stupid is that? I mean really!?

There are plenty of rescues that I don't 100% agree with everything they do but I know their hearts are in the right place and they do what they feel is best and right for the dogs in their care. And really isn't that what it is all about?

Dogs need an special care because they can not say anything to us about their health.We have to understand about their expressions and all.Thanks a lot for sharing this post.
