I have three pit bulls, one Rottie mix, one cat, one rabbit (intended food, saved by my son), one siberian dwarf hamster (intended food, saved by my son), two puppies remaining (from the rottie mix and one of the pit bulls...accidental breeding of a "sterile" bitch, long story), and around 400 - 600 rats (intended food, and WILL NOT BE SAVED BY MY SON!!!). Also have 30 or 40 mice for the few little snakes to munch on.
"To truly rescue an animal one has to provide long-term care that guarantees the animal's security for its natural life, because rescuing is more than removing an animal from a bad situation. Rescue involves restoring and preserving the animal's dignity for its natural life without stress, and this includes conserving the species as a whole for generations to come." (Brian Werner, founder TMLF / TCWR)
