True statement: In the early days of rescue I didn’t want to “know” how bad over population is for Oklahoma dogs and cats. Even today, it still gives me an awful feeling in the pit of my stomach, but I’m determined to ferret out a realistic count for rural rescues and municipal shelters.
This week a van with rescue written on the side - - and another vehicle - - were seen in Vinita and it looked as though they were selling puppies out of the rescue van. Myself and a board member high-tailed it down there (I got there first). I sat for a minute and watched and realized it might not be what we’d suspected.
Yes, I usually write about collaboration. Yes, it is one of my favorite words. However, I also know the power of one. This past weekend, while PAAS Board Members and Staff were helping runners preregister for Run Jack Run, I heard a true life story that exemplified the power of “one”.
