I first saw this video on the Care2.com Blog. It suggests we all become part of a global animal rescue campaign. Stopping to rescue an animal takes time. It takes compassion. It takes being a hero.
Visit The Great Animal Rescue Chase website to read more about the campaign. This is taken from their site:
"Welcome to the event that celebrates the heroic nature of the animal lover with an amazing mission to rescue one million. This free event is open to people everywhere ..."
"So pull your car over and move the turtle off the road. Untangle the fishing line wrapped around a pelican's wing. Call authorities to report that dog chained up without food or water. Take in that elderly stray cat wandering through the winter snow. Be late for work. Get swamp water on your sneakers. Get fur on the back seat of your car. And 10 years from now, you'll still be talking about the day you saved a life."
We don't just save these animals. They save us by making us push ourselves to stand up for them, to call on resources we didn't know we had, to bring out the best in ourselves -- for them.
