In addition to providing wonderful examples of illiteration, angering liberals, and blogging, my next great joy is my furry buddies.
I wanted to share with you my reflections on being an animal lover. Most importantly, I want to urge those of you who are considering buying a pet, to reconsider and adopt one instead. With all the animals in shelters waiting to be adopted with some to be euthenized, you should really consider adopting.
At a local shelter here in Pennsylvania, a relatively small rural shelter, they have 200 dogs and about 300 cats. They are a no kill shelter. A lot of the animals will be adopted, but many will not. They will spend their entire lives in the shelter, yearning for a home. Though they are treated with love and attention by the caring staff, nothing can make up for a real home. To snuggle with their caregivers at night or watch TV with them in the evening is what these animals deserve.
There are many no-kill shelters, but sadly, many are shelters which will
"euthenize" unwanted animals. Your purchase of an animal at a store means there is one more animal at a shelter which will go on being homeless.
I want to share with you three of my beloved buddies which I've adopted. I urge you too do the same.
And don't forget. Spay or neuter your pet!!
