No shelter or rescue organization can save all the dogs and cats that need a rescue – in their area. And, when people call from another county, town or state - - the answer has is “no” because there are too many homeless dogs and cats within a 10 mile radius of any town or home in rural Oklahoma.
One of the most difficult decisions I made had its beginning at another shelter. As you read this, please understand ….. this doesn’t work for everyone in rescue …. it shouldn’t because we need everyone working toward a common goal.
Collaboration is the process of two or more people or organizations working together to complete a task or achieve a goal. Collaboration is similar to cooperation.
Rural Rescue is challenging. And too few people understand the reality of the challenges faced by those of us who are the “voices” for homeless pets.
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”.
For Worse….. For Better
Feb 25, 2015 we broke ground on the Peaceful Animal Adoption Shelter. One year and a couple of months later, we opened the doors.
I’ve come to appreciate the value/power of a visual over the spoken or written word. When I tell people we transfer 25 – 30+ dogs every Tuesday night to Dumb Friends League they respond with luke-warm enthusiasm in their voices
