My Journey Into Rescue — In Honor Of Patch

My journey into rescue began once I was younger. My brother and I needed a canine, and my mother advised us we had been going to rescue. As a seven-year previous, I didn’t actually know what that meant. Nonetheless, when my brother and I went along with her to the animal shelter and met Patch, we instantly needed to take him dwelling. To be sincere, we in all probability would have felt that manner about any canine. However Patch was accessible and Patch was good with children.

Patch was not a very good-looking canine. The shelter stated he was a border collie/whippet combine. He had a brief black and white coat. He was principally legs. Patch had face that was half black and half white, with a white stomach and black again.

He was good. We instantly fell in love with him.

For the following ten years, he was my greatest pal. An ideal canine who cherished to play fetch with a plastic ball. He handed proper earlier than I graduated highschool. I used to be heartbroken, however I believe he knew I used to be prepared for the following a part of my life in school. Patch instilled in me the significance of rescue and the way a rescue canine might love.

Once I started working after school, I needed to get entangled with a volunteer group to offer again and discover a group with shared values. The one alternative that made sense was animal rescue and welfare. I stumbled upon Fortunate Canine Animal Rescue in 2018 and haven’t seemed again. There are lengthy hours and it may be tough. Nonetheless, it’s the greatest group I might have been concerned with and I really feel the impression of this work each time I put the collar on a newly adopted canine at an occasion and ship them dwelling with their endlessly household.

Since beginning my function as an adoption coordinator 4 years in the past, I’m proud to say I’ve personally helped over 100 canines discover new houses. These have ranged from juvenile pups to seniors, however in case you seemed by the images, you’d discover a whole lot of black and white pups.

I do that work as a result of I adore it, however I additionally do it in honor of Patch and all the opposite rescue canines who’ve touched my life.

I’d prefer to assume he is aware of it’s for him, and that he’s happy with me.
