My brother now has a long history of working in animal rescue, and recently took a great coordinator job with one of the country’s major animal welfare groups. He’s been training in Virginia, and so was able to help out with a recent rescue of dogs abandoned or neglected in the Gulf Coast region.
Many Louisiana animal shelters are (once again) at capacity, and so the overflow pups must be transferred to shelters with extra room. The event got a fair bit of local press coverage and he has now appeared in at least two news videos.
In the video, you can see him handing off the first puppy to a tattooed girl, and he makes an appearance later, wearing a black t-shirt. Baywatch celeb Pam Anderson helped out, and my brother even got to meet her. 🙂
Words can’t express how proud I am of him for doing such a heart-wrenching job. Man’s relationship with animals and nature is a direct reflection of our society’s mental health, and so my brother knows first-hand that we have a very long way to go before we’re anywhere near Zen.
It’s a job I couldn’t do, but I am so thankful there are people like him who can.
