I read an interesting post today on my social media page. It said: "I continue to see rescues treat people in a way that will sadly keep irresponsible breeders and pet stores in business."
Finding the right pet for your family shouldn't be a decision that is taken lightly. As a parent, I can relate to the seemingly endless barrage of requests for a cat, a dog, a goldfish, or bird. It can be really tempting to give in to these requests, especially when you encounter an adorable, but unwanted pet who really needs a home.
I don't do this to make friends, for approval or a pat on the back. You don't like dogs? I don't care. I do this to save dogs, and if this notion is unfathomable or difficult to understand, then I suggest you take a good long look at yourself in the mirror.

I thought this article Kelli Clevenger shared with me was awesome. It opens the possibilities for people who want to start their own business and who love pets. But one lucrative opportunity isn't in there, poop scooping. I know a couple of people who have really cleaned up by cleaning up.

Longshot was once a celebrity. The four-year-old yellow Labrador Retriever riddled with gunshot wounds and left for dead in Virginia in December 2014 made national news. But now things have changed.
There are compassionate people like this across the country, and it's critical to connect their compassion to causes that save and protect animal lives. Some people are already inspired and active; others are just waiting for a local event like this to capture their concern.

When Charley brought home an adorable mini pig named Otis, he was a little nervous to see how Bella the pug would react to the newest family member. Thankfully, their owner filmed their first encounter because it's too precious for words!
Mild weather can seem deceptively safe, but it is not. In less than 30 minutes, the temperature inside a car can rise more than 30 degrees higher than the temperature outside.
