It’s probable that most people would argue that animals deserve kindness, care, and love. Unfortunately, some fail to provide this to their pets, and the effects can be quite detrimental to the lives of many animals all over the United States. In a lot of low-income areas, some people fail to have the means to support the animals with which they live. In other areas, where pet populations of dogs or cats are rampant, it’s almost impossible to get a safe, stable home for every pet. Of course, people go through hardships too, but pets do not have the means to pull themselves out of trouble like humans do.

For example, people who volunteer for organizations like these can sometimes run into a lot of unseen consequences, such as depression and anxiety, from seeing animals in states of physical and emotional stress.

Then you have the people who don’t just volunteer some of their spare time; some work for these crucial organizations for a living. It’s because of their efforts that hundreds of animals are rescued every day all over the country. Today, hear about the stories behind one of the country’s most vital organization
