“Consensus: The process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values, and policies in search of something in which no one believes, but to which no one objects; the process of avoiding the very issues that have to be solved, merely because you cannot get agreement on the way ahead. What great cause would have been fought and won under the banner: ‘I stand for consensus’?” –Margaret Thatcher
Think back to that time that you joined the animal rescue movement. Think back to that time when you first volunteered at a local animal shelter or signed up to be a rescue relay transport driver or maybe a foster home. For many of you, this was your first foray into animal rescue and that volunteering fueled your passion and from there something sparked you to then form your own organization to help change the world for animals. You had a fire in your belly and bold ideas that would change the world. You likely shared with friends, family and soon with other animal rescuers how your creative ingenuity would revolutionize things and how brilliant everyone would see that you were all along.
At Doobert my passion is helping you fill YOUR passion for animal rescue. It may surprise you but the best enhancements that I have made to the Doobert system over the years have come from the minds of people that had the courage to say “what if we did ____? That might help to make things more efficient and to help save more animals.” Many volunteers are afraid they will offend me by suggesting things but nothing could be further from the truth. I WANT your criticism and feedback, I NEED your complaints, suggestions and ideas. It’s how I fuel MY passion to bring the system that powers yours.
