Not all angels have wings. Some fly planes that carry at-risk dogs and cats to safety every month. Two hundred healthy felines and canines scheduled to be euthanized just made their flight to no-kill shelters in the northwest so they could find forever homes.
I had occasion to visit this amazing sanctuary recently. The Living Free Animal Sanctuary was founded by Emily Jo Beard whose inspiration was Albert Schweitzer. Like Schweitzer, she believed that justice was meant for all, humans and animals alike. It was moral courage Emily believed in, standing up for animal rights as a guardian, not an oppressor.
