Sometimes I am an Angry Rescuer

Yesterday i went to pick up a load of feed to hold me over until i get my truck fixed and was reading the board they have on the wall outside . The board is typical of most feed stores out here that will host event posters , an array of business cards , tree services, hay for sale and " HOME WANTED" .

You ever notice that when someone is giving up someone they always state something along the lines of " we love him to pieces but " and or " much Loved ", What a pile of bullshit And i feel this way because i do love and know what that is and it means i would do everything i had to do to make it work.

Do these people say this to relieve some sort of inner guilt or are you saying that to make us feel sorry for you? Because giving up someone and then saying you love them on a crappy piece of paper on a feed store board is such bullshit.

Then they add must go to good home well how would they know a good home from a bad one ? Clearly they were a terrible home as they are getting rid of someone they love!!

Oh and now the very popular " adoption fee" is added to the post as they have learned that stating a value doesn't go over too well with people who love like me so they use terms the rescue orgs use and that is " must pay adoption fee" I am rolling my eyes here but this shit sells and works on the average joe as they are not in the rescue world and facing this kind of bullshit on a daily basis.

In fact anyone can pretty well say anything they want now as there is no one policing "bullshit" animals unwanted ads.



Now before i have to read about tragic stories that are an exception to the rule ..please don't bother . I will see more of those in a week then you will see in a lifetime.

EVery day i get an email from someone wanting to get rid of someone they claim to love. And after years of getting these emails how can you honestly expect me to be as gullible as i was 20 years ago, Do the research before there is another innocent soul wondering why YOU don't want them anymore. I am an angry rescuer now as i don't forgive your stupidity because it has ultimately hurt someone i really do love. and i am doing everything i can in my life time to make it better for the ones you claimed too. .

Those of us whose hearts have been ripped out with the death of a precious animal, who have moved heaven and earth to make their lives better while they were alive, who have arranged their own lives and choices around their companion animals well-being; absolutely cannot understand the disconnect of people who can part with theirs. Saying I had to get rid of her or him or them is unthinkable. and heartbreaking to even contemplate. It has to be a lifetime commitment. Anything less is abysmal cruelty. and to put a dollar sign in their salvation is sick.
