Of Love, Rescues and Heartbreaks: Always Choose to Rescue

The highs and lows. The ups and downs. It’s a roller coaster ride. It’s an everyday struggle where you are being tested. Of course, there are some who are winning – from being able to save a life from the streets. However, there are some moments which are heartbreaking. In a blink of an eye, everything can crash down. Rescues and heartbreaks always go together. Once you put yourself into this world, expect that your heart will break a lot of times.

Not all survive.

When you actually see the lives of the unwanted and neglected stray animals, it changes you. The neglect, abuse, suffering – they are everywhere. Ignorance and lack of initiative from people anger you. The more you become aware of your environment, the more it destroys you. Do you know what drives us? It’s the conscious need to help these abandoned animals out of their difficult situations. But, the bigger question is: Do you know what drives us crazy? The task is overwhelming. The fact that you see those faces who need your help, but you can’t save all of them. You will start to mourn and grieve. Then, if you want to ask for help, most never really care.

Rescues and Heartbreaks

Every time you forget why all of these matter, you question what you’re doing and wonder if all of these are worth it, every time you forget, just look at them. You will find the answers. You will see how grateful they are, the smile in their faces, and most especially, their love.

So, I get up…

When you ask for help and people neglect you, you will learn to trust less, and do a little more of what you can do – and that is, to fight a little harder. You will learn to try more, and hope that the next time, you can do better.

“Rescued does not mean they are damaged. It means they had been let down by humans.”

When you look at their eyes, you will remember how they got here and how far they have come. You will realize that if they didn’t know you, they wouldn’t be here, and that they had already given up. As you look back, that’s the time you want to move forward.

The above images show some of our rescued babies. Look how love transforms. Yes, we choose to rescue, and YES, we all have the chance to walk away. But, we choose not. Rescuing is painful. Rescuing is joyous, and it’s all worth it.

To more triumphs and heartbreaks. Cheers!

I have 4 rescue cats and it’s amazing to watch them transform into happy pets that aren’t scared anymore.

I totally agree with you. There are so many animals in need of loving homes. If we only had a bigger space, I would adopt one more dog!

Krysten Quiles

Amen, this is why I only adopt through rescue and why I’m a foster mom as well. Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

My cat is a rescued cat who has been abandoned with his little brothers when they were only a couple of months old. He was so tiny when I got him. Now he is a proper full grown cat, playful and very vocal, who is the soul of the house. Love him to bits.

This is so heartbreaking!! My bunny rabbit is a rescue rabbit and he has so many health problems. but if it wasnt for me then he wouldnt be alive!

Amber Myers

Yes, I so agree with this! We’ve picked up both our cats from shelters! I wish I could save more. There are some strays in the neighborhood that I feed. I always worry about them.

I 100% agree! My cat is a rescue and I’ve never looked back. I’ll always rescue before buying.

Seeing the before photos is heartbreaking. I am a huge proponent of adopting and rescuing over shopping for pets.

This post is inspiring and a good reminder. I rescued my dog and my cat years ago. We had years together. They both were beautiful.

I love this! Bringing awareness to this is essential. All of the dogs we have ever adopted, including the ones we have now, were rescued. Thanks for sharing!

I definitely think rescuing is very important! Such a good cause to support.

I think recusing animals is a beautiful thing. My kids saw a parakeet that looked ill in a pet store, it looked like it had been neglected by the shop and bullied by the other birds (a runt), it was at that moment my kids wanted to keep it and provide it a home. We did! now ‘Pineapple’ (birds name) looks and feels healthy and happy. He gained weight, has feathers and chirps happy songs/noises every day!
If we ever get a dog, it will be a rescue!
Great post to spread awareness 😉

It’s wonderful that you chose to rescue! I definitely want to do this once I buy a home. These animals just need to be loved!

All of them look so adorable and deserve all the love they can get. I am always up for the adoption of rescued animals instead of puppies since there are tons of them waiting for their forever homes.

From a perspective of a non-rescuer, and someone who has no pets, I admire how you feel towards stray animals. I wish I had a heart like yours, but I’m just not there yet. Maybe, that’s why there are people like you, not everyone can and would want to be the hero that saves these poor babies. God bless you!

I will never understand how people can hurt animals. There is just no reason to hurt something so innocent.
