I look at pets needing home almost daily both posted on Facebook and in the listings on Petfinder.com. I read yesterday that an animal is euthanized every 11 seconds in so called shelters in out own country. My heart is broken, and if I'm honest I wonder what is wrong with people to abuse, abandon and ignore the need to help those who can't help themselves.
I am really over my capacity but I can say with certainty that I have never owned a pet that didn't enhance my life in a major way. Pets are non judgmental and only know how to love when treated with kindness and love. Do yourself a favor and save a life.
