and i wanted to share it with the staff and volunteers....your efforts to provide dignity, respect, love and care to unwanted animals near the end of their lives is appreciated on the outside as much as it is here.
A short while ago, a cat at the Nelson SPCA , where I clean, was euthanized. She was so special, in the way Sasha was: gentle, patient with every procedure, loving. I checked in on her soon as I arrived one day- but she was not there. I was devasted, debilitated, only able to do my work in a marginal way. A wreck. After reading your post about Sasha, it really hit me that you will be watching the decline of every animal you so openly embrace at SAINTS. Quite a burden, that of course can only be accepted because of unquestionable devotion to that segment of animals that has no home elsewhere. Very moving, to those of us who are watching.
Very best to you and your group. Thanks, so much, for undertaking a most emotionally exhausting cause.
