REGARDING RESCUES:

Question – “WHY DO ‘RESCUES’, DOG CONTROL AGENCIES, ASPCA’S AND HUMANE SOCIETIES EXIST?”
 
Answer
- Because there are TOO MANY animals and NOT ENOUGH good homes, PERIOD.

Current ‘hard times’ and, frankly, some really crazy people out there add to the problem. Legally recognizing ‘pets’ as personal property adds to the problem. Poor regulation of “puppy mills” adds to the problem. ‘Back- yard’ breeders add to the problem. Not enforcing current animal legislation adds to the problem. Seeing commercial vet costs spiral upward adds to the problem. BIG PROBLEM.

“RESCUES” provide an alternative to an abandoned or lost animal going feral or living a life of quiet desperation, being killed or dying slowly. One world-wide figure reported of 1 in 700 dogs having a “home”. So what do you do until spay/neuter programs turn the tide and backyard breeders decline the unreported income from 6 Bull Dog pups? What do you do until the ‘legal system’ consistently enforces current code and sees animal neglect and abuse as significant? YOU RESCUE OR SUPPORT RESCUE.

Are ALL “rescues” good, caring and legitimate? NO. Are there established regulatory agencies for “rescues”? NO. Can abuse and neglect happen in a “rescue”? YES. What do you do? Support a ‘rescue’ with your time and donations that you have investigated. Most provide a humane alternative for an animal that has no advocate but help with your mind first then your heart. CHECK IT OUT! HVCLCC has donated countless hours, over $500,000.00 in estimated commercial vet fees and helped over 900 animals in the last eight years. A life lesson learned is that the value of a donation is based on the expectations and attitudes of the “people” helped and varies BUT the patient is always silently grateful.
