Review for Southern States Rescued Rottweilers Inc, White Hall, AR, USA
I have worked in several areas of the rescue and I am always willing to do whatever is necessary especially seeing how so much is taken on by so few who are all 100% volunteers. No one gets paid a penny yet most work full time jobs and work almost as much if not more with the organization. We all do it simply for the love of the breed especially with so many areas with breed restrictions as well as insurance restricting breeds as well. This results in them being dumped. They all break my heart in the beginning but provides so much joy seeing these dogs happy for probably the first time in their lives. Some have lived a long and what must have been a miserable life if they can be dumped at a shelter when they are seniors. The look in their eyes and the unconditional love they are finally able to share on both sides is the most rewarding thing anyone can ask for. My only regret is that we are not able to help more. With more volunteers, especially fosters, we would be able to help more dogs. We are not an organization that takes the dogs from one cage to another but they are placed in HOMES of volunteers. In some cases, the first real home they have ever experienced or even being indoors. I am fostering my first one and failing miserably at being able to be separated from him. It's an incredible feeling! there is not doubt of the genuine love and passion we each have for these dogs. One of my favorite almost happy endings is of our current boy WOLF https://youtu.be/0QdxoYU-MqI Wolf had the owner back over his leg and crushing it and left him to heal on his own. Caliber is another that breaks my heart when he was shot in the head and left for dead. Lastly Hershey and her brother escaped from their "breeder". The breeder came and got the brother but left Hershey because she didn't like her color. Standing there crying for her brother as they walked out of the shelter leaving her behind. These dogs both have their happy ending! How can you not enjoy experiencing this kind of reward?!
