Tony Alsup began his efforts last Wednesday, visiting shelters in the zone facing destruction and taking those animals least likely to be selected for a home. The sick, the less beautiful. the animal outcasts were his primary mission and he took them on board his Noah's bus as he continued search for other such animals. Tony's work is clearly a labor of love and he is of the opinion that all of those animals are beautiful creatures and deserve a decent life. And with the help of shelter workers who have praised his effort, new homes are being found for many as Tony continues his rounds to find more. Since he is using a bus, his cargo is dogs and cats, but he has loaded it up with dozens of canines and felines who quickly understood he was there to help them. Tony is just a hard-working man with a big heart for animals and his love shines through and he vowed from the outset that all those animals who would normally be found at the back of the bus of life will never be in the back again.
So, here's a heartfelt cheer to Tony for his good work and for his efforts which point out a most positive action in a society that is oh, so woefully putting tragedy and suffering in the headlines. He deserves some praise and I hope he reminds us of the importance for caring for our animals if we've chosen to bring them into our homes. Turning a domesticated animal into a homeless waif as a storm approaches is not what God expected when he granted us dominion over all living things on this earth. Hopefully, the efforts of this simple man and his devotion to the task will resonate in the rest of us as well. And isn't a story with a positive message and a good moral action good to hear once in a while? I think we need more of them.
God bless you, Tony, and many thanks for your efforts.
