Donna is one of those people in life who sees a problem and does something about it. Instead of sitting at home and complaining about the world, her positive actions have made a huge difference to the lives of so many animals and people. Here’s her story.
In St. Louis, Donna realized one day that far too many dogs live on the streets and are left to fend for themselves. For the past eighteen years, she has made it her daily mission to head out into abandoned buildings, parking lots, and wherever else to rescue and rehome dogs that would otherwise be subject to the elements.
Her rescue is simple enough – she goes out and collects the dogs, ensures they get the medical care and attention that they need, then strives to find them the perfect forever home with a family that will take good care of them. It’s a simple recipe for success, but something that Donna works tirelessly to achieve every day of her life.
Donna makes the point that most of the dogs that she rescues are only in their current situation because of the actions of people, so she feels that we owe it to the dogs to help improve their situation. And of course, she’s absolutely right.
While she probably doesn’t want the praise, Donna’s story is yet another example of the mantra that not all superheroes wear capes. She’s just an everyday person who has decided to something meaningful with her life, and that is something we should all celebrate and recognize.
I think we can all agree that Donna’s efforts over the past two decades have been nothing short of remarkable. She has set up an organization called Stray Rescue of St. Louis, and you can find out more by visiting their website.
