This is a series of diaries highlighting animal rescues around the country and noting and celebrating the work they do to help animals who have no voices but ours to speak for them. I have decided to make this a daily series because there are so many wonderful rescues out there who need human help and weekly just doesn't seem to be enough. I have long wanted to start a rescue but lack the resources or time available to do so right now so this is my attempt to do my part. I hope that these rescues will benefit from the kindness and benevolence of the community here at Daily Kos. I chose this rescue, Responsible Pet Care of Oxford Hills, because it was suggested by mayim in the first diary of the series. They are operating on a shoestring and need all the help we can give them. They are an amazing organization and worthy of Kossack attention and care.
Responsible Pet Care Of Oxford Hills
"Hungry. Cold. Afraid. The abandoned cat searches for shelter. She has no person to care for her. She has no warm bed to rest in. She is alone.
She reaches out to a friendly face in search of comfort. Instead she is trapped.
The dog breaks loose from his run. He explores the neighborhood, but goes too far. He is lost.
If this cat or dog lives in an Oxford County, Maine town that contracts with Responsible Pet Care they are lucky. They'll be brought to Responsible Pet Care and given a second chance for a happy life.
Responsible Pet Care is a no-kill, non-profit shelter and adoption center for cats and dogs located in Norway, Maine. We provide a safe and comfortable environment for cats that have been abandoned or surrendered by their owners. We also provide a place for a lost dog to rest until his owner comes for him.
All of the cats and kittens in our care need permanent homes and are available for adoption. Most of the dogs will be reunited with their owners; but some will require new homes.
Please continue to browse our site. You will be surprised at what we do."
