Harrison's agency fields hundreds of calls a month from law enforcement officials dealing with an escaped animal or owners overwhelmed by the cost and responsibility of an animal's care. He has been on more than a hundred big cat rescues in the past year and over his lifetime has rescued close to a thousand exotic felines. He was there when a man in Pike County, Ohio, named Terry Brumfield finally agreed to give up his beloved but ill-kept lions. He is currently working with a man who owns a bear that bit off his finger. The owner can't yet bring himself to let the bear go.
哈瑞森的动物服务署每个月都会接到几百通来自执法部门的电话,他们要么是碰到了一只逃跑的野生动物,要么是碰到了一个无力养活自己的野生宠物的主人。光是去年这一年,哈瑞森就拯救了上百头大型猫科动物;综其一生,哈瑞森拯救的异国猫科动物加起来有近千头。有一次哈瑞森在俄亥俄州的派克县成功说服一名男子放弃了他心爱却照顾不周的狮子,现在哈瑞森正努力说服另一名男子放弃他的宠物熊,这只熊咬掉了它主人的一根手指,而这名男子却做不到放走这只熊。
"I meet people where they're at," says Harrison." If an owner isn't ready to give their exotic up, I help them care for the animal in the best way possible. I help them build a better enclosure or get the best kind of feed. I don't judge. My hope is that, with the right kind of support, the person will eventually see that owning this animal is a dangerous drain and will voluntarily choose to give it up."

哈瑞森说:“我尊重别人的选择,从不主观评价别人。如果主人还没做好心理准备放弃他们的野生宠物,我就帮助他们以最好的方式照顾这些动物,或者帮他们造一个更好的围场,或者帮他们将这些动物照料好。我希望他们最终能够意识到,养野生宠物是一件耗财耗力的事情,并且能够主动放弃”。
