SHADOW CATS RESCUE
May 8, 2012
I don't think I've ever had or ever could encounter a finer group of people than those who constitute the Shadow Cats Rescue personnel. The level of caring, compassion and commitment to the lives of the cats in their charge is truly remarkable and serves as a moving testimony to the existence of the oft-elusive human compassion. Another aspect of the organization, and one of noteworthy merit, is the way in which the people and organization work in tandem to bring out the best in those that come there to volunteer. The sense of "family" and camaraderie combine to bring out the best in those who come under its wing. Prior to volunteering there I was something of an introvert; withdrawn and caring for little other than myself and my own narrow self-interests. But following prolonged association with the wonderful people and their charges I begin to realize that there was more to this world and my life than just myself. It made me realize the value, goodness and, yes, the rewards inherent in one's association with this fine group and the joy in helping small creatures whose lives have been impacted by events and environments beyond their control. I feel truly blessed to have been awakened by this group's selfless caring and the attendant commitment to the wellbeing of those that cannot speak for themselves. Thank you SCR.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The manner in which I deal with people and animals as a whole. It brought about an enlightenment in myself that I would have thought vertually impossible prior to becoming involved with these people.
