The passage above comes from the Jewish Talmud, and signifies the infinite value of each human life. It is inscribed on a medal awarded to Oscar Schindler by a Holocaust-memorial organization. Oscar Schindler, by all accounts an ordinary man, convinced the Nazis that the 1200 Jewish men, women and children he employed in his factory were vital to the Nazi war effort, thus sparing them from the Nazi death camps. When asked why he did it, Schindler later explained: "I hated the brutality, the sadism, and the insanity of Nazism. I just couldn't stand by and see people destroyed. I did what I could, what I had to do, what my conscience told me I must do. That's all there is to it. Really, nothing more." Schindlerís story bears witness to the possibility of goodness, love and compassion in the face of unspeakable inhumanity.

The dedicated volunteers of Zara's List are inspired by individuals like Oscar Schindler who are compelled to act when others turn away. Our goals are simple. We intend to save as many abandoned, abused, and neglected dogs and cats as possible, provide them with a loving secure environment in which to rehabilitate their souls and rekindle their spirits, and then find them appropriate forever homes with owners who will love and cherish them for the remainder of their lives. We strive to educate the public on the importance of pet sterilization, responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals. We bring this message into the classroom by teaching children to respect and value animals in the hopes that they carry our message into their families and into the community. Our aim is that one day all animal shelters will be "no-kill".

Unfortunately our shelters are inundated with Moms and babies and we often are called and asked to take them into our rescue. We also receive the calls from the community when intact females get pregnant, folks thinking it would never happen to them, end up with an unwanted litter that they need assistance with placing.

We help these pregnant moms bring their babies into the world, help the mom with caring for their babies properly and at 8 weeks, we have a whole litter of very cute puppies and kittens that will need homes. The mother, of course, is always spayed and then re-homed as well.

Many of the dogs we bring in are so poorly neglected, it takes an Extreme Makeover to bring them back to their "normal" look
