"...those of us who have realized our lifes' calling, and understand that nothing we do gives our lives more purpose and gratification than "doing what we are able to do" for our fuzzy and feathered friends in their time of need.." (email from Paul Guettler, Houston, TX on the RPOArescue list).
We should "promote education as a way to prevent the need for rescue... As Bond states it, "The solution is to do a better job of educating the public on the value of spaying and neutering and of only dealing with responsible breeders when purchasing a dog"" (Palika, Liz. "Rescue Dog Closeup." AKC Gazette, June 2003, 12).
