My slight dabble in their world wasn't really an accurate representation of the sheer amount of work they do, just a tiny insight. Thankfully, Deb saved the nicer jobs for me to do so I didn't go running for the hills! I didn't have to answer the office phones (which is a notoriously unpleasant job sometimes as people are often abusive when we can't help them), I didn't have to deal with any new arrivals or decide which animals we had space for and which we didn't. Neither did I have to put animals to sleep that were suffering and in pain that we couldn't save.
The remit of Deb & Michelle's roles are mind-boggling, the logistics and constant car journeys are often tedious and time consuming (as well as thoroughly unpleasant in this heat!) & seeing cruelty, abuse and abandonment every single day must take it's toll.
Our charity might be small but I hope this blog provides an insight into how hard our team work for each and every animal in our care. They do us all proud. Same time next year then Deb?
