Once in a while I sit and look back at the journey that Precious Paws has taken me on over the last 12 years. When I started the rescue I was a new grad (veterinary technology) and had recently moved to Barrie. I was single, had 2 dogs, and had just started my career in a vet clinic. I had been working and volunteering in the animal rescue world for 7 years by then and I saw a need for a local rescue in our area. But I hesitated.
