Cayce Mell and Jason Tracy
Despite these successes, Jason and Cayce often find themselves powerless to stop the injustices they routinely encounter in their rescue work. Even when Cayce undertakes the training to become a humane police officer, she discovers that her new authority does little to address the underlying problem. "I thought getting a badge would allow me to do so much good," she laments. "But it's very hard to help animals that people view as commodities."
In the end, Cayce and Jason must learn to make peace with all they have seen and experienced, and it is in their work helping animal farmers transition to a new way of life that they find the greatest hope.
