It was in 2016 when Lou Robinson and her husband, Mark Bowlin, put up a non-profit organization called “Warriors Educate About Rescue.” Their mission? To educate people about providing compassionate care to pets and giving them the quality of life they deserve.
They, along with members of their organization, go around schools to share their knowledge of interacting with animals. This includes knowing how to understand a dog or a cat’s demeanor and body language.
They also use each session as an opportunity to encourage people to adopt animals from shelters. This is the basis from which they share information on the needs of less-abled animals.
Of course, the couple includes the importance of neutering and spaying in the discussion. Regardless of the animals’ degree of ability, this is a vital issue that needs to be addressed.
Along came Nubby, Who Helps to Teach Compassionate Care
Robinson and Bowlin take pride in their ability to rescue animals and give them the love, care, and attention they need. Their expertise in caring for pets was put to the test when they received a call about a puppy that was born without front legs.
The poor thing couldn’t get past his siblings to feed, and he was close to crossing the rainbow bridge. The vet had planned on euthanizing him but the couple decided to take him in.
Raising the puppy, who now goes by the name “Nubby,” was extremely challenging for Robinson and Bowlin. They rushed Nubby to the veterinary hospital countless times because of different health concerns.
Despite almost giving them a heart attack, he conquered every single challenge and made sure to thank his human parents for not giving up on him. Nubby is a real fighter. It is clear to everyone that enjoys life and wants to live.
Being human parents to Nubby deepened the couple’s appreciation for what their organization does. They tweaked their curriculum to help people, whether they be fosters or newbie owners, to be the best “parents” to fur babies that they can be.
They also talk about how differently-abled dogs like Nubby are just as lovable as the “normal-looking” ones. Emphasis is placed on how all dogs, differently-abled or not, deserve to be part of a loving family.
