The feeling when you first rescue a dog, put it in your car and drive off, is indescribable. Rescuers are always positive – we can’t afford not to be. We can’t afford to cry, because the next dog like the one we just lost might be somewhere around the corner.
So while we mourn for a dog that cannot be saved, our minds are already set on the next dog we are about to rescue. Zaira, Hermes’ foster mum has already picked the next dog she will foster. And she is positive, so are the rest of us.
