Those of us focused on solving the specific problem of dogs and cats being killed in shelters rarely characterize our work using the word “rescue” because it’s not all that relevant to most of what we do. Our work is about saving lives, supporting communities and reframing the role of animal shelters in that space. Yet for many animal lovers around the country, the familiar notion of “rescuing” cats and dogs persists, and I can certainly understand why.
