well done. so glad to know im not alone. my wife and i rescue as well. mostly dogs cause some of the dogs we have dont see eye to eye with cats. our house was full 6 dogs ago and we have 9 now. How full is full….. its never too full to rescue and save. the love we see from the dogs is worth all the effort and money in the world. ill gladly sell everything i own to save more. good on you and dont listen to people like that. When i read the first paragraph ” pets are not above people” i just read troll troll troll and so on. let em be. let them put themselves before any other living thing. Its a lonely place to be but whatever floats their boat! I can honestly say without animals i nor my wife would be complete. May you rescue and save many more lives and be rewarded with endless love in return.
