• Riding The Rescue Railroad

      I’ve seen the posts a few gazillion times.  “Can anybody transport a dog from here to there?”  “Who can pick up a kitty at such and such an address?”  I’ve seen them, I’ve even shared them, but it wasn’t until this past week, I had any clue about the breadth and depth of the

  • The World Needs More Cat Guys

    An urgent email came in from Melissa, my husband’s co-worker of nearly 3 decades.  Her son Zac had rescued yet another kitten from her husband’s job site and the employees at the company needed help stat.  “I can’t stand the thought of so many cats there that keep reproducing and the risks associated with that.

  • Two Words You’ll Never Hear Her Say

    Anybody who spends their days following animal rescue efforts knows there are certain names that seem to constantly rise to the top. One of those belongs to an angelic-faced, steel-backboned warrior named Emily Clare.  Over the past five years, her name has been on the forefront in the fight to end BSL in Canada, Save

  • The Secret Life Of A Vet Tech

    Like so many of our introductions these days, this one came via a Facebook message.  It was from a licensed veterinary technician who also happened to be a hobby photographer and wondered if there was any place in the campaign for a photo she’d taken of her son and their foster dog?  I ran down
