Makes me wish I were rich. I'd help rescues of animals and people , and especially my church, probably till all my money was gone and my death would come at the same time. Makes my heart pound for the goodness of these people. Everyone I've ever known in animal help//rescue has a heart of gold.

To everyone reading the comments: You don't have to do things on this large of a scale in order to make a difference! If you admire this lady and what she's doing, you can make all the difference in the world to one or two dogs at a time. Contact your local rescue groups and animal shlters and let them know you'll provide the space and TLC for an animal as a foster parent if they will care for the costs of the animal. Tell them you'll be its foster parent until it gets adopted or until it is time to put it down or it dies naturally. And then once that animal is gone, turn around a foster another one. You don't have to change the world, just change the world for one animal at a time 🤗
