Being the Change: Jasmine’s House Inc.

Rescue groups are similar to the dogs we help: there are so many of them, all amazing in their own way – but there is always one that stands out to you; one that you connect with. For me, Jasmine’s House was this group. Their mission is so deeply rooted in a passion for saving pit bull type dogs that with every single dog they take in, they help make the world a better place. They have so much knowledge and understanding of what dogs need to heal, and time after time they give dogs a chance who may not have had one otherwise.  But their impact goes deeper than that still.

Jasmine’s House is spreading their mission to the public by engaging strangers in thought: what change do you wish to see in the world? It’s a tough question to ask yourself, and an even tougher question to find the answer to. You’ll discover, though, that when you and many others start to think about it, an unimaginable amount of diverse and brilliant ideas come up. Jasmine’s House is really on to something with this, sparking inspiration and motivation every time they pose the question. See for yourself:

Because honestly, what change do we imagine for this world? Everyone has a different answer to this, and of course none of them are more correct than the others. It’s just a question people should ask themselves once in a while to at the very least reignite passion for a cause. After all, “Nothing great in the world has ever happened without passion” (-Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel).

Remembering why we do what we do can help during those times we feel burnt out or we question our efforts. It can help when trying to convince others of the change that’s needed. It helps to focus our intent and better our efforts. So thank you, Jasmine’s House, for making me step back and ask myself, “If I could have this world any way I want, what would it be?” There are so many answers that come to mind that it’s impossible to choose just one. But for now:

What type of world do you imagine?

  1. I think the tide is turning….I imagine a day when NO man, woman, child or animal is discriminated against just because of how he or she looks.

  2. I imagine a world where people are able to empathize with each other and with animals. Llamaentity imagines a world where the robots have taken over. Mushroom imagines a world made of bacon. Badger imagines a world where Mushroom is a moving squeaky toy that always wants to play with him.

  3. What a wonderful message. Thank you so much for sharing your insight on the world of animal rescue. It’s not an easy one to live in but I am so grateful there are people out there like yourself and the other’s at Jasmine’s House who really are making a difference.

    I imagine a world in which no human or animal ever goes hungry.
