Ave, Sherlock

“Animal rescue is not possible without an amount of dedication that only few of us can master. It’s not a one day event. It’s not a hobby. It’s a lifestyle. It means sleepless nights, fighting disease, fighting ignorance, coping with stress, finding more time than the 24 hours that are in a day. The animals that need to be rescued are usually in a bad state. Those that find Let’s Adopt! Global are lucky. Those that ever have the chance to hear Viktor’s voice, feel his touch and look into his eyes (even though he often has a camera pointed at them ;-)) know that everything that can be done will be done for them, by the best vets out there and supported by the Let’s Adopt! Global community. Animal rescue gives heartache but such is life. This time it’s Sherlock’s death causing the heartache but others did so before him and more will follow. We find strength in the knowledge that most rescues do end well and although the joy of those success stories keep us going, it’s the Sherlocks of this world that have a special place in our hearts because we so desperately wanted a better outcome for them.”
