To Rescue Or Not To Rescue!Wanting to make a diffrence is something we all feel like doing when we see the amount of suffering going on around us. However wanting to make a diffrence and actually doing it takes a lot of time money and oppertunity. It is not just rescuing another lost soul it is also a question about being abel to provide the nescessary care and love and understanding for years to come that should make us think twice before we rescue.Truth is we can all make a diffrence without a penny to our names. There are websites such as the animalrescue site click for free and make a diffrence for countless causes. There is Freekibble .com as well a good place to start and something that makes you feel good because you are making a diffrence every single day.Remember that every long journey starts with a singel step. Then you can gather knowledge about certain aspects of animal rescue and find a course that speaks to your heart and that makes you feel the need to make a diffrence. You might stumbel upon it by chance or a specific breed of dog might capture your heart and soul. This is what happend to me and it has brought me so much happiness that I am all too happy to share it with others. It all began with the death of my nine month old whippet puppy. He had been diagnosed with a cerebral tumor and haemophelia. I had to let him go with love for his sake. The love we shared was uniqe and I thought of one way to honour that love would be to share it with a hound that had never known love or what having a home would be like. Hence Connor came into our lives and it was a lifechanger beyond words. I started my own organisation in 2006 and without being rich. I make a diffrence by simply alerting others to the plight of racing greyhounds and the Spanish galgoes. Lots of lives have been saved in the nick of time because of the many contacts I have avaliabel. I have never been abel to take any hounds in myself untill two and a half years ago. I was only allowed to keep two hounds that changed when I moved to a bigger place that allowed me to have two more hounds. Those two places have since been filled with two more deserving greyhounds. My hands on rescue Tristan and my surplus to requirements retiered racing champion. I have learnt a lot over the span of those short years. Enough that starting to rescue animals should come with a warning never take in more than you have time money and space for. I am not trying to discourage anyone but it does take all of the above mentioned qualities in order to make that vital diffrence and it takes commitment as well for years to come because what you bring home is a helpless family member that will require a lot of time money and understanding as well as patience. So before you decide to start a rescue remember this and you will be well on your way to making a diffrence wether big or small is not the issue it is the deed in itself that makes the diffrence. You could voulenteer at a shelter or rescue if you have what it takes. Best wishes and good luck to all would be rescuers out there. God bless Lisbeth Mønsted Larsen Greyhound Action Denmark.
