What are really dog rescuers made of? What are they like? What do they look like? Is there a specific type? Are they young, old, tall, blond? What music do they listen to? What kind of families did they grow up in? What’s their social and educational background?
There isn’t really an answer to these questions, because rescuers can be all sorts of people. We are all so different, that if we met under different circumstances, most of us would not even waste five minutes getting to know each other better.
You can’t spot us on the streets, because we aren’t really made of anything special, we don’t look alike, we don’t share the same taste in clothes, political views, music, lifestyle. Since I became involved in..whatever it is I am doing now, I met, socialized and spent too much time with people I never thought I would even say hello to on the street.
I am a former “wannabe actress” in my thirties, with a degree in psychology and a “hippie-rock” background. Others are 60 year old mothers and grandmothers. Others are university students who listen to a kind of music I didn’t even know existed until they told me about it. We are different. Very different.
People often leave comments on my videos like: “people who do this are angels” and it sounds so weird. Because people who do this are actually all sorts of people. They are old, young, weird, social, antisocial, beautiful, ugly, tall, short, skinny, fat, conservatives, liberals, gay, asexual, sexy, neurotic, optimistic, pessimistic, boring, fun, kind, rude. They -we- have nothing in common, except for one thing.
