“Lassie, Cleo, Rin Tin Tin, and Toto seldom show up in a rescue or shelter. We don’t get the elegantly coiffed, classically beautiful, completely trained, or perfectly behaved dog. We get leftovers. Animals that other people have incompetently bred, inadequately socialized, ineffectively “trained” and badly treated. Most rescue dogs have had it. They’ve been pushed from one lousy situation to another. They’ve lived outside, were used for breeding, stuffed in a crate, or left in the basement. They’re scared, depressed, and anxious. Some are angry. Some are starving, sick or injured. Some have given up.
But Looking Glass Animal Rescue will not give up. We will never give up on an animal. We know that they are living beings, with a spirit, a heart, and feelings. Our animals are not commodities, things, or garbage. They are part of sacred creation and they deserve as much love and care and respect as the next Westminister champion. So…please, please don’t come to rescue a dog in the hopes of getting a “bargain” or indeed of “getting” anything. Come and rescue a dog to give, to love, and to save a life and maybe, to mend your own spirit. For rescue will reward you in ways you never thought possible. We can promise you this…a rescue dog will make you a better person.” -AUTHOR UNKNOWN
