Many people question why I choose to provide care to elderly, abused, terminally ill and/or physically challenged animals when there are so many healthy animals that are in need of a home.
My response is to ask a simple question of them – if they had a friend that was elderly, abused, terminally ill and/or physically challenged would they not want to provide them with loving and supportive care?
With animals we are loved unconditionally. We dedicate endless time, energy and emotional attachment to them and in return, they become our soul mates, companions and sometimes our guides. For this simple reason, they deserve the chance to live their lives to the fullest.
The animals I care for deserve, as do all animals, to live a good life with as much love, peace, dignity and ease from pain as possible. All of my charges will be fully supported for as long as they are able to live a quality life; however, I believe that no animal should experience unnecessary pain or suffering simply to prolong its life.
