Thanks To All Animal Rescuer’s

Our thanks to Your Daily Cute for allowing us to share this:

I am an Animal Rescuer.
I will never bring about world peace.
I’m not a brain surgeon and I’ll never transplant an organ to save a life….
I don’t have the ear of a powerful politician or world power.
I can’t end world hunger.
I’m not a celebrity, and God knows I’m not glamorous!
I’m not looked up to by millions around the world. Very few people even recognize my name.
I’ll never win the Nobel prize.
I’ll never save the rain forest or end global warming.
There are a lot of things that I’ll never do or become.
But today I placed a cat!
It was a small, scared, bundle of flesh and bones that was dropped off in a shelter by unfeeling people that didn’t care what happened to it, but yet who were responsible for it even having existence in the first place.
I found it a home.
It now has contentment and an abundance of love. A warm place to sleep and plenty to eat. A child has a warm fuzzy new friend who will give them unquestioning devotion and teach them about responsibility and love.
No, I’m not a rocket scientist but today I saved one of God’s precious creatures. Today, I made a difference!
I am an Animal Rescuer.
My job is to assist God’s creatures.
I was born with the need to fulfill their needs.
I take in new family members without plan, thought or selection.
I have bought dog and cat food with my last dime.
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand.
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid.
I have fallen in love a thousand times
and I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body.
I have Animal Friends and friends who have Animal Friends.
I don’t often use the word "pet."
I notice those lost at the road side
and my heart aches.
I will hand raise a field mouse
and make friends with a vulture.
I know of no creature unworthy of my time.
I want to live forever if there aren’t animals in Heaven.
But I believe there are!
Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind?
We may be master of the animals,
but the animals have mastered themselves.
Something people still haven’t learned.
War and abuse make me hurt for the world,
but a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for humankind.
We are a quiet but determined army.
And making a difference every day.
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan.
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life.
No higher recognition than watching them thrive.
There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play
who only days ago, was too weak to eat.
I am an Animal Rescuer.
