When You Find A Stray

"You're in your car, heading somewhere or other, a long list of things to accomplish and already running late. Suddenly, you see him—a dog, there, by the side of the road. With a sinking feeling, you realize he's alone. Your car is coming alongside him now. You have only seconds in which to act. But what should you do?

This is a wrenching scenario for all who care about animals. Once you've seen the dog (or cat), it's too late to avert your eyes and drive on, even if you wanted to. After all, what if your own dog or cat were standing there? So, before you pull over, good Samaritan that you are, here are some guidelines for assisting animals safely and effectively."

It seems that whenever I've been off the computer for a long duration, I first peek at the Pet Rescuer Central. As usual, I find an article that is so important, so useful to me and to others. Finding a stray animal can present many decisions. Thank you sooooooooo much for this outstanding article, Jane.
