Why I Rescue

Taking care of rescue dogs
Is something I do best.
I know because I’ve done it,
And I’ve surely passed the test.

The dogs I’ve bathed, the food I’ve fed,
The vacuuming I’ve done,
And all to watch a frightened soul
Sit dreaming in the sun.

My own dogs I’ve neglected,
But I tell them everyday
That I love and cherish each of them
Though a new dog’s come to stay.

I know they understand this,
For in their eyes I see
The love that I have given them
Come shining back at me.

Some people think I’m crazy,
Some others think I’m great.
But very few can understand
What really is at stake.

If I can love and help a dog
To find a better way,
My own life is much richer,
I look forward to each day.

So now you know my secret,
It’s there for all to see,
The love I give, the life I save,
I do it all for me.
