Examples of rescue work in a Sentence

  1. Sarah Wolfgang:

    I actually grew up in Korea and I frequented a lot of dog cafes there and I really got involved in animal rescue work there. And when I came here, I visited a shelter within the first month that I was here, i realized that there was such a greater intake of dogs than there were adoptions. And I was like, what's a good way to combat this? And so I was like, why not bring a little bit of home back from Korea here but implement the dog adoption aspect of things as well.
