Showing Compassion.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Sally and David Hanson have challenged us to do something good and keep doing it throughout the year. The good they are looking to have us do is something we don't regularly do and is a stretch and meaningful to others and to ourselves in some way. So here we go. I have long been an animal advocate and have fostered, contributed to any number of animal groups and even volunteered with a rescue group in New Jersey and a shelter in Massachusetts. I still promote these animals and currently have four of my own now, but this isn't new.

What is new this year is my effort to help those who for whatever reason can not afford to keep their pets any longer. Sometimes it is simply a matter of economics, sometimes health related and sometimes it is a landlord who decides it no longer acceptable for tenants to keep theit pets in his or her property any longer. These are really tragic situation and I am committed to helping the people keep their animals for as long as they are able. I make every effort to do what I would want done for me. I support these people by supplying food for them and their pets. I help elderly or ill people walk and care for their pets and I talk to landlords or help tenants with pets find other accommodations if landlords won't change.

This matters to me and certainly to those I am able to help. Doing something in a little way is important and makes me happy and productive as well.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Your love of animals is clearly evident, Sheila.  I think there are things most of us could do, which we have a passion for, and can, simply because of passion, rather than any monetary benefit.

Love the pic of the gang.  It is so hard to see the commercials tugging at the heart strings.  Wish one could adopt every one.   How do you find the people who need assistance in keeping their pets?   There is an organization that ships donated pet food to small shelters that don't have as much access to donations here: http://rescuebank.org/

Thank you Faye. There is an organization in my area where food is donated to those who need it. People who need to rehome animals are often online too. TY  Sheila

PS I just checked out your link and it is a good one for me and others too. Do a post about it.

What a fantastic idea Sheila! Pets are so good for people and those that can't afford to keep their pets are often the ones that could benefit from the companionship the most. I love the idea of helping someone be able to keep their pet!

I absolutely love this idea, Sheila and kudos to you for taking on something so unselfish and heartfelt. Having those 4 adorable fur babies (great picture!!) makes you totally understand their plight. If I were losing my pet and you came along and save my pet...OMG, my heart would overflow!
