While I do help a lot with rescue, I am not a fan of the slogan. Most people in rescue, don't get to meet the good breeeders. They meet the crappy ones, and it can skew their judgement.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
