Meet Jackson. He came in sort of hot mess, and we were able to groom him and make sure he was updated on vaccinations. After a stay with us, he went back to his owner, equipped with some information on keeping him busy, a new Kong toy, and an appointment for neuter and microchip.
Reunions such as the one between Jackson and his owner, we believe, are an integral part of animal rescue. Sometimes people need a little help in keeping their animals, and we can play a tremendous and important role in making that happen. There are times when us humans get a little lost along the way, times that we live, literally, day to day, because that's the only way to keep from falling into complete despair, and there are times when our animals are the only reason we get up and try it again, because they love and need us. And because we love and need them.
Welcome home, Jackson. We enjoyed meeting your owner very much; we wish you both a lifetime of health and happiness, and will always be here for you.
Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things,
man will not himself find peace.
