Stay safe, say a prayer for every animal you handle, and think about what you are doing before, during and after. Every animal we deal with deserves our respect, compassion and love. Even the ones that try eat us!
And you all deserve this as well. Too often you all are looked at in the wrong light. I know, I was too. People today seem to forget that old saying "if you aren't part of the solution, you're part of the problem." Those of us who have worked or are working in this field know all too well how true that statement is. I always thought of this whenever I was called a name for what I had to do, "let those among you who are without sin cast the first stone".

Keep up the good work guys and gals!
