In light of our own TTucker's rescue story of Sam, and so many others that give so much of themselves to help unwanted animals, it only seems appropriate to start a thread at Christmas to give special thanks to these selfless folks. Rescue workers are amazing and I am in awe of them. They take animals into their homes, help them to love and trust people again. They provide medical care, very often at their own expense. Then comes the most amazing act of love: they let their rescues go to a new home. The courage that takes is humbling to me. So come on everyone, here's a SHOUT OUT thread for our favorite tPF rescue folks or anyone that you know that works in animal rescue. I'll start with TTucker for her unyielding love and devotion to Little Sam. While he came into her home as a rescue, he was blessed to be able to stay. Though Sam lost his battle from years of abuse and neglect, he knew more love than he ever dreamed possible in his last few months.
