The Rescuer’s Creed

The Rescuer’s Creed was included in the packet of materials given to us by the Michigan Sheltie Rescue, Inc., concerning our recent rescue and adoption of Victory.  However, the author’s name was not provided to designate the appropriate credit.  I really believe this creed to be very true in our experience with dog rescue.  Enjoy!

On another note, Victory is making progress each day getting acquainted in her new surroundings.  She is just adorable!


The Rescuer’s Creed

I promise I will take your unwanted animals.

I will heal their wounds, their diseases, their broken bones.

I will give them the medical attention they need and deserve.

I will nurture their starvation, and give them a warm place to sleep.

I will spay and neuter them, vaccinate them against the diseases that can harm them.

I will treat and honor them.

I will buy them toys, blankets, balls, and teach them to play.

I will speak softly to them.

I will try to teach them not to fear, not to cry, and not to hate.

I will whisper sweet, kind, gentle words int o their ears, while gently trying to stroke their fear, their pain, and their scars away.

I will face their emotional scars and give them time to overcome them.

I will socialize them, potty train them, teach them to be obedient, show them dignity, and hold their paws and stroke their ears if they have endured too much and walk them over the Rainbow Bridge.

BUT, most of all, I will teach them LOVE.


Love Never Fails
