Tara talks about her animal rescue adventure.

on Sep 19, 2011

Ask yourself, "Have I ever been passionate enough about anything to the point that I would risk my own life?" Whether it's love, family, honor, or whatever it may be, I know in my heart that this fire burns within all of us. Clearly my passion is saving animals, and I'm willing to risk my life to do it.

So in tonight's episode you get a glimpse of how animal rescue can be dangerous, but in the moment I just don't think about it. Instead, my only focus is on these innocent animals who need my help, and that's what keeps me going back time after time. My only regret was dragging Drew along with me. That was beyond stupid on my part, and I will never put another person in harm's way again -- lesson learned. There are times when I don't know if being that passionate is a blessing or a curse! But then again, how could I live any other way?
