Who's saving Who

I squeezed and held her very tight. To try and stop her trembling fright. I massaged her as it seemed to help. And in return, she didn't yelp. We gave her treatment for the fleas. And a distemper shot with ease. She seemed to truly trust us now. I was so moved, I just said Wow. To truly win somebody's trust. I think it helps us all adjust. There is a saying in society. Who saved who, you or me? Note: This was just the way I started my day volunteering at the humane society. While volunteering is a lot of work. I've never done or been involved in something more rewarding. I am grateful they let me come and help.
