My name is Michelle and I started volunteering for a shelter about a year back. I've always had a huge passion for animals and seeing the amount of neglected and homeless pets was an eye opener for me, especially those that are truly forgotten and forsaken in less privileged communities, those who have caring owners but due to economical reasons cannot sterilize and provide vet care. Needless to say once you have rescued one animal or improved their living conditions you can never turn back as their are thousands more waiting for help.
Though the task often seems dawnting the following saying keeps me going ... "rescuing one dog won't change the world but for that dog the world is changed forever".
I'm driven by the need to sterilize, sterilize, sterilize as this is the only way we will stop the overpopulation, neglect and suffering of countless dogs and cats.
