When you work in rescue, you get to deal with all types of people. Those who adopt are refreshing and lovely to speak to, however, the ones dumping their animals on you can be hard work. Here are some of the things I have to hear regularly (and some of the things I would love to say back);
Choosing to volunteer for a rescue is one of the best decisions I have ever made, but it’s not easy. I have always been drawn to rescue animals, even before starting my career at a rescue. I have adopted animals that other people didn’t want – I always asked my Mum if I could have a dog as a child, and remember saying to her “I want to give an older dog a second chance!” instead of begging for a puppy like many kids do. I think I drove her mad, as I asked for a dog every single day. Eventually our circumstances changed and we were able to adopt a dog, although that’s for another post!
