We’d just like to say a very grateful thank you to the 6 volunteers from Deloitte who gave a whole day to rebuilding our website from the group up, including turning our Word forms into online forms, and designing us a shiny, new logo.
There is some research to suggest that humans are hard-wired to remember the bad things and forget the good things; possibly a useful survival mechanism if you are hoping to avoid where you saw the sabre-toothed tigers last time.
The trouble is that once we start focusing on the negative; on how badly people treat animals or how irresponsibly, sometimes, they dispose of them it gets easy to assume that that is the reality. But we believe that in truth the reality is that most people care about animals; are responsible and good-willed.
Every animal we take in has lost a home; but sooner or later every animal we take in finds a new home and gets a second chance at safety and happiness. Why should we concentrate on what is lost and not what is gained?
So rather than wasting our time and energy on those things we can’t fix, we would prefer to spend our time on those things we can change. And thanks to Deloitte and their Impact Day volunteers we now have a better platform for getting the word out about our lovely dogs and cats.
Every time we rehome an animal we are reminded of how many more good and caring people there are in the world, who are not only willing but grateful for the opportunity to welcome a recycled pet into their home.
So thank you to Deloitte and thank you to our adopters for reminding us, once again, about how much kindness lives in the world.
