emotional exhaustion because as much as they want to save them all, they simply cannot. It all takes quite a toll on the team. “And it takes a toll on me,” Torres said, “but at least I always find a way to think positive.” Mammino also has to battle against the challenges of the work. Her plan of attack? Puppy love. “When I have a bad day, I go home, sit in the middle of my floor, and get all the puppies out that I’m fostering, and [they] just jump on me,” Mammino said. “And that soothes it.” Mammino advises anyone overwhelmed by the bleakness and severity

of animal suffering in the world to simply “save the ones you can.” If you’re looking for a new pet, perhaps a visit to Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue is in your future. If not, Torres urges people to visit one of the many available shelters and animal rescue organizations. “If you want to go to any other shelter, that’s OK,” he said. “You’re saving a life.” Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue is located at 10405 Southern Blvd. in Royal Palm Beach. If you would like to learn more about fostering or adopting through this local nonprofit, call (561) 684-1010 or visit www. justinbartlettanimalrescue.org.
