Why We Rescue
Rescue pets are just the best, and I say so from personal experience. All five of my pets – three cats and two dogs – are rescues. One from a farm in Arkansas, one from a sealed crate in a parking lot, one from an acquaintance who was fostering a stray, one from the shelter, and one from the aftermath of last May’s tornadoes here in Oklahoma.
Theron Humphrey ( of Maddie the Coonhound fame) partnered up with Purina One on a year-long documentary series entitled Why We Rescue to tell the stories of how shelter pets make our lives better. He hit all fifty states with the goal of sharing just how amazing, devoted, and happy shelter pets are and why you should consider adopting one the next time you’re looking for a furry companion. Three out of four people looking to adopt a pet don’t even consider it an option, and perceptions need drastically changed. Check out the site for an adoption story from each state, see Theron’s incredible photography, and listen to the beautiful relationships these pets have with their owners.

I rescued too and it really makes my heart hurt to even think about what my life would be like without my Tater. Thanks for being a part of this project!

Our second rescue joined our family in December. She was suffering from severe demodectic mange and secondary skin infections and we really had to work to cure her. It was worth every moment. She is worth her weight 100x in gold. Rescue pets are the best …
