We also have a duty to be careful with how we represent our efforts and the families that we assist. For one, we do not have a right to slander people with abuse until after they have had their day in court. If we, as the frontline of animal welfare, can not act with respect and compassion then we do a disservice to our community by creating the conditions where people in need of rescue will avoid contact with us and thus unintentionally inspire animal abandonment.

I know Doc knows this, he is a smart guy, he is just caught up trying stay up on the postings. Keeping a smile on your face through all of this is never easy, but it is an essential part of the job if we want to be affective at what we do. The reward is getting to know the people you serve, sometimes you walk away realizing that first impressions are not always the case. My contact with families was usually more in depth with AC then with rescue because I would have to investigate, write reports, talk to lawyers and prosecutors, make court directed follow ups etc.
