Heartlander of the Week: Rescuers

This week’s Heartlanders are animal rescue organizations and animal adopters.

As a pets person, it is hard to explain sometimes to people who aren’t pets people why one should own a pet.  Yes, they are messy, they are expensive, they break things, they are a time sink.  (I would point out that the same applies to cars.)  You can talk about dogs providing security and cats providing “integrated pest management services”, that is, catch mice and bugs.  But that’s not the whole story.  I think there is a value in taking care of something.  It’s a payback to one’s own soul.  And sometimes they save you from a burning building.  🙂
