Our detractors often argue that we work to protect only the cute and cuddly animals.
Just for the record, today we liberated two adolescent cockroaches (who probably ran back inside the office through some crack in the building). We live as gently as possible and do not draw the line at "vermin". We are not speciesist.
If I sound a little jadded, it's because it has been that kind of week, with all kinds of calls from people wanting to give up cats, for a whole variety of reasons (all of which we've heard before). I better stop before I rant.
Have a wonderful compassion-filled weekend, everyone! I will do my best to extend my compassion to my fellow man.
