About Jessica
  • 'Never, never be afraid to do what is right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.' - Dr. Martin Luther King

    I am a pediatric occupational therapist working with children with developmental disabilities. I am also involved with animal rescue and transport.

  • Someone told me animals don't go to heaven. "Why?" I asked. "Because Jesus died for the sins of people, not animals," he answered. "You're correct," I responded. "Animals never commited sin. Their connnection with God was never broken. They never required redemption, which is why they've been able to redeem so many of us."~~Diane Ciarlon

    “Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.”—Albert Schweitzer

    "Mommy like shoot guns"--T

    "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    “I am sometimes asked 'Why do you spend so much of your time and money talking about kindness to animals when there is so much cruelty to men?' I answer: 'I am working at the roots.'”—George T.Angell



    I Am An Animal Rescuer

    My job is to assist God's creatures

    I was born with the need to fulfill their needs

    I take in new family members without plan, thought or selection

    I have bought dog food with my last dime

    I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand

    I have hugged someone vicious and afraid

    I have fallen in love a thousand times

    and I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body

    I have Animal Friends and friends who have Animal Friends

    I don't often use the word "pet"

    I notice those lost at the road side

    And my heart aches

    I will hand raise a field mouse

    And make friends with a vulture

    I know of no creature unworthy of my time

    I want to live forever if there aren't animals in Heaven

    But I believe there are!

    Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind?

    We may be master of the animals,

    But the animals have mastered themselves

    Something people still haven't learned

    War and abuse make me hurt for the world

    But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for humankind

    We are a quiet but determined army

    And making a difference every day

    There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan

    Nothing more rewarding than saving a life

    No higher recognition than watching them thrive

    There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play

    who only days ago, was too weak to eat

    I am an Animal Rescuer

    My work is never done

    My home is never quiet

    My wallet is always empty

    But my heart is always full

    In the game of life, I have already won!

    ~ Annette King Tucker ~


    I am only one,
    but still I am one.
    I cannot do everything,
    but still I can do something.
    And because I cannot do everything
    I will not refuse
    to do the something
    that I can do.

    --Helen Keller
