|“Animal rescue work can be immensely satisfying, gratifying and devastating, all at the same time.
“You deal with the unknown, the hurt, the hungry, the lonely. And you simply cannot save them all.
“You give love and get love back many fold in return.
“But every once in a while, you come across an animal that really touches your heart and you form a special bond that makes the work transcendent.”
– Kyla Jones, SNAP Founder, 2011
