So okay I KNOW there are some over-the-top rescuers and you know who they are too. They must be the ones mentioned here in this article which is, I think, very wisely written. But you must read the ENTIRE article ALL the way through before you react to the “dare I say constructive?” criticism aimed at animal rescuers. This is about finding ways to convince people to stop visiting pet shops and breeders for their family pet. If they’re afraid to go through rescues AND shelters, where else are they going to get their pets from?
Feel free to offer your opinion or relate your experience. Rescuers need to hear feedback even if they don’t like what they hear. Remember, it’s about getting these animals adopted into good solid forever homes. It is not about damaged egos or hurt feelings.
Related: This article is getting lots of comments both here and on the author’s facebook page. In my opinion, the author appears bitter and petty and is basing her assertions on one bad experience she may have had. But you be the judge and read the article.)
