Everybody that knows me has been somehow involved in my rescue world and my passion for helping animals in need.
I have come to a place in my life where I have found that we are in this world with a purpose and we should pursue it. Mine is helping animals.
I understand that each one of them has their own voice, their own soul. And they each hold a very special and dear place in my heart.
I have met and gotten to know the most remarkable companions. They are so much more to us than we think and they continue to prove that each and every day. They are our eyes for the blind, provide therapy for post-traumatic stress survivors, they have been able to predict certain cancers in humans and are companions for the companionless. Dogs are so sensitive to human needs they can actually predict seizures. These are just a few reasons why we should be as sensitive and compassionate to their needs. They are true “Human’s Best Friend”.
Cats have been shown to help people get over their loss more quickly, and show less physical symptoms of pain, like crying. Cats, in particular, lower your stress level, Petting a cat has a positive calming effect. One study found that over a ten year period cat owners were 30 percent less likely to die of a heart attack or stroke than non-cat owners. Cats are able to heal because their purrs fluctuate between 20-140 Hz, a frequency range which has been proven to be medically therapeutic. Purrs aren't just preventative health tools, your kitty's rumblings can also help heal. Purrs have been shown to cut down the healing time of infections, broken bones and muscles injuries.
I can go on forever giving reasons why we should help them. I personally rescue animals because they stole my heart a long time ago.
The images that I have seen during my work as a rescuer have deeply affected my everyday life. Our four-legged friends do not receive the credit that they deserve and I want to use whatever platform I have been blessed with to gain attention and help to continue my work saving and helping these beautiful creatures.
