Let's Save The Animals!

After a week of learning how we can save the animals that need our help and our support, I found it fitting that I write a proper post to end the week off. On Monday we learned about options of where you can adopt a pet. On Wednesday we discussed Pit Bulls, the world's most misunderstood dog breed. On Thursday we met Elsy, an adoptable cat. And yesterday, Saturday, we took a look at some dogs who were homeless but ended up with loving families.

Tuesday was our tribute to Forrest and Friday was the next part in our world tour, which is a weekly thing.

Today's post doesn't have a specific topic I should say. In fact, as I write, I'm somewhat unsure on how to word all of this, but here goes!

We need to be doing more to help save the animals. A lot of are deeply saddened by the sad caged shelter dogs we see on TV, but what if we got off the couch and actually went to help those animals? What if we donated to the shelters and rescues and breeders who contribute to our society? What if we spent time with shelter animals to make them more adoptable? What if we helped out more at rescue adoption events?

Saving the animals isn't something that just happened in a day. It's a gradual moment that happens little by little. It happens when you share an adoptable pet profile on Facebook. It happens when you educate someone on pet rescue, or maybe on the problem of Pit Bulls. It happens every time a dog is spayed or a dog is neutered, which I'll discuss in a later post. We should be advocates for pet rescue and for saving the animals...it's something that must be done!

So, tell me in the comments...what have you done or you plan on doing to help save the animals?

    Correct Robin; it is one thing to say, quite another to do! I am a supporter financially and by giving blanket donations to three different outfits; one is our very local group, focused on helping elderly and less-abled folk to keep their dogs in good health and conditions in order that they don't become homeless; one is the area's branch of the SPCA; and the other is a vet-based charity, again to support owners and animals who cannot otherwise afford proper care. I admire you energy and enthusiasm!!! Hugs, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. My Lee was a transporter for many years. Taking dogs to their forever homes or from kill shelters to no kill shelters. We picked them up from a women who drove from the east and we drove the south route usually dropping off at Berea, Kentucky but sometimes we had to drive the next leg into Tennessee.
    Sad job!

  7. We just LOVE THIS POST!!

    We opened our home to foster puppies for a few years, we take foodies, blankies, toys and treats to our local shelter AND we make sure when we go to Amazon to sign into smile.amazon so part of our purchase money goes to our favorite Animal Shelter!!

    We totally agree, Robin, we need to do more for our area shelters!!

  8. It would be great if we all would do a little bit to avoid overcrowded shelters and maybe we can help with finding new homes and supporting shelters and adoption events...
