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!
