Bearing witness is a heartbreaking act. It never gets easier. It is saying goodbye to sweet, innocent animals after telling them that, just for a moment, they were seen and loved. It is an act of defiance in a society that constantly tells us to look the other way, to not care about these lives because they don't matter.
The Save Movement started with one woman and her dog standing in the open to simply see these animals and to show others that she saw them. Now it is a global force helping people see the animals that are hidden in plain sight.
