RErescue Member Spotlight
Real Estate Agent | Rescue Pet Hero
Through the years we have come across people who are selfless and are truly an inspiration. Amrit Sherfill is one of our amazing RErescue Members and is someone who stands out from the rest! We wanted to showcase how incredible she is in the pet rescue world. Please read on as we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amrit, thank you for being a RErescue Member and for joining us today. Maybe we should start with what motivated you to want to join RErescue?
RErescue is a great group to be involved with. I still see people out there buying from breeders and even worse puppy mills when millions of dogs and cats are being euthanized in this country. In the developing countries the cruelty is even worse and in Asian countries they eat about 60 million dogs and cats and kill them in horrific ways such as boiling them alive and blow torching them. It’s horrifying and I want to make a difference in helping to save them.
How many years have you been a realtor and why do you love real estate?
I’ve been a realtor for over 2 years. I love it because it gives me the ability to use my many talents and skills it also gives me tons of freedom. I like to treat people the way I want to be treated and my clients appreciate that about me. I am also a designer and will be flipping my own homes in the near future.
Have you fostered a rescue or been involved with helping rescues in the past?
I have been helping all animals (not just dogs and cats) for 28 years. I have fostered about 70 cats and dogs possibly more - I lost count! I have volunteered in Tijuana on a few different rescue efforts as well.
Have you ever adopted a rescue pet? If yes, please tell us how your rescue pet changed your life in a positive way.
Over the last 28 years I have had 12 rescue cats most I rescued myself from the streets and 4 rescue dogs one I rescued off the streets as well. I am an animal lover and they have become my number priority.
What motivated you to want to help rescue pets?
I have been an animal lover since I was a little girl. I was born this way. I was born being a compassionate soul for animals and want to help save rescue pets.
What’s something you have learned about rescue pets since joining RErescue?
RErescue makes it easy for me to create new ways to help animals within my real estate business.
Why do you continue to support RErescue?
Animals will always be my number one priority so I will always support this group.
How has joining RErescue changed you?
I am highly motivated but it is nice to see what this group is doing and makes it easier for me to either do the same things or create new ways of helping animals as well.
What’s your vision for the future as a RErescue member?
Open peoples hearts and minds to the needless suffering of dogs and cats and show them ways they can help.
