These dogs too have walked unique journeys of abuse and abandonment. I share a similar understanding with them, and if they had voices I’m sure they’d say the same – that not all is evil and there is good to still be had in this life. As humans, we have a lot we can learn from dogs through their willingness to trust, love and forgive regardless of what has been done to them. These dogs deserve a second chance, they deserve – love, kindness, and a hopeful shot at living their success story.
I’ve heard the saying, “you can’t buy love, but you can rescue it”, those words never rang so true. I had a rescue pit, Diesel. I saw the posting on Craigslist and without hesitation I had an instant connection with this dog. As to be expected, we found him outside emaciated and neglected. I had a purpose and my purpose was to restore the faith in Diesel, just as others had done for me. At the time I didn’t realize it, but I needed him just as much as he needed me. In those moments you can’t help but ask yourself, who rescued who? This is what inspired my deeper purpose. My give back. My last step in my recovery.
Koira is my platform and it can be yours too — to help, to be involved, to make a difference. Restoring faith, love and hope into these dogs who are worthy of every single one of these things despite their past. You can be the next step in their recovery, by simply giving your time and sharing lots of love. My hope is Koira will be another positive stepping stone in their adoption journey. I truly believe if they are given the opportunity to be loved, they will learn without hesitation to love in return.
And who knows, you too might find yourself in that moment asking the question, who rescued who?
