The motivation behind my rescuing, my golden girl, Shenzi. My mom and I went to the vet to buy dog food when we first laid our eyes on Shenzi. They told us kids on Spine road were selling her on the street, but they were throwing her around and someone managed to get her and they brought her in to the vet. Shenzi was in such a bad condition that she couldnt even eat, they thought she wouldn’t survive. She barely had any fur on her, she was covered in what they called “mange”. The vet had been looking after her for 2 weeks before we took her in, and she was approximately 8 weeks old. When I saw Shenzi I knew I had to take her home, I couldn’t leave her behind. After what I found out about what happens to animals, the cruelty that they are faced with everyday, horrified me. That’s when something in me awakened and through my amazing journey with Shenzi, I realised that I finally loved and cared for something more than myself. Shenzi has been the reason why my awareness about animal abuse has broadened, she’s motivated me to rescue and I could never agree more on the quote “In rescuing animals I lost my mind but found my soul” because I’d do anything I can to try and help as many animals as I can. We require funds to help raise and support our 14 rescue puppies and 1 rescue kitten, and we aim to spread awareness about animal abuse and the need for people to adopt, foster or rescue pets instead of going into a pet shop or breeder and purchasing them.
