What Will We Do?
A pet is a delight! For those who have pets, it's easy to understand how these animals are true treasures and how they can become 'family members' very quickly! There's something about a faithful pet and how they help make bad situations better. For many, the family pet provides so much love and companionship. We wonder how we ever got along without our pets.
Some of you may remember Clementine, the white/yellow lab mix puppy we adopted in early January. What a sweetheart! She is truly one of those treasures! Clementine has a delightful disposition and loves to play. She has been so easy to train and has been following verbal commands since soon after she became a member of our family! We are blessed with her!
In these hard economic times, it is important to help people in need. We must also remember that when families are cutting budgets and living on a shoestring, they have animals - family pets that need help too. People are making difficult decisions about providing for their pets. Our animal shelters and humane societies take those pets that families are unable to care for. How terrible it must be for someone to lose not only their home but also their pet because of job loss, foreclosure, and generally difficult economic times!
Do something today to help! Find a way to help a person in need - volunteer, donate, do whatever it takes! And while you're at it, look in your phone book for the local animal shelter or humane society. Do something to help a homeless animal, too. You might foster a pet that needs a home or volunteer your time. If you can't do that, offer to make a contribution for food or other needs. Not just those folks in economic needs but also their pets need our help! Find a way to help today!
