|Opal...RIP May 15, 2013|
Maybe the hardest part of doing rescue is when the loved ones go away and you can't help but think how much more they deserved than we humans allowed them to have. She couldn't live free because we humans made it such that she couldn't have survived...we made her dependent on us and then almost all turned away from her and denied our responsibility. She had a spirit and a heart big enough to fill anyone up...and none wanted her except Heartland.
And she was one of the lucky ones. What I like best about Heartland is that all the bunnies are cared for, they are all loved, they are all special. And they are all, always and forever, at home there.
I don't like this year 2013. I don't like it at all. Recently way too many have gone away. Zoe, Bella, Pippin, Poe, Ariel, Kiera, Benson and on and on. It hurts...it hurts a lot. Their lives are short, their needs are small and they quickly fill up your heart and then leave you devastated when they die. The work isn't the hardest part...it's the having to say goodbye to so many so often. Goodbye Opal.
Do your part to not do harm...go vegan. Do your part to give a home to those who need it...support your local rescue and/or sanctuary.
