"We ought not to treat living creatures like shoes or household belongings, which when worn with use we throw away." -Plutarch, biographer (c. 46-120)

Why not people?

Why spend our time and money on animals when so many people are in need?

We all have special talents, specific strengths that we should be bound to share with the world. Doesn't it make sense to do what we are pulled to do, instead of nothing at all?

Every animal successfully rehomed means a person benefiting. To me, that is a win/win situation.

The Starfish Story

Original Story by: Loren Eisley

One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.

Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”

The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”

“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said…

”I made a difference for that one.”
