Me: Eve it is so hard when you get calls about dogs that either you know you can't help or you have no room for them.
Eve: Mama, I thought we could help all the dogs. I know there are sometimes we don't have room for everyone.
Me: One of the hardest things for me to accept is that we cannot help every dog. Some dogs are beyond help. It can be a health issue or behavior issues. We always have to think of the rescue as a whole and not just one dog. That is very hard to deal with.
Eve: so you have to say no sometimes?
Me: Yes and you hate that you have to do that ever. You don't want to take a dog that will have to live in a kennel for the rest of its life. That feels even worse than saying no at the very beginning.
Eve: it makes you sad mama.
Me: yes Eve. You have to focus on the good and what you CAN do.
