Going into Debt to Rescue Abandoned Dogs

The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that’s wrong with the world. — Paul Farmer

Good News of the Day:
“On any given Saturday, you’ll find volunteer rescuer Tracie Mitchum sitting outside in front of the Whole Foods Market with an array of cats and dogs she’s rescued. She brings the pets to the parking lot hoping to find applicants to adopt them and to raise funds to provide veterinary care. “I feel welcome at Whole Foods and it’s refreshing,” Tracie says during our recent chat on the campus of the College of Charleston where she works as an adminstrative professional. “I need to be there on weekends because if I can squeeze out another $50, I can save another life.” And saving lives she does. Last year, Tracie spent nearly $15,000 caring for rescued animals. Her boyfriend helped with part of those costs and the rest has gone onto credit cards which she’s trying to make a dent in each month.” More on Tracie’s touching dedication to animals.

Be The Change:
In this short passage, “Liking is for Cowards, Go for What Hurts,” author Jonathan Franzen talks about how his love for birds triggered more than what he expected.
