Kindness Ideas

Adopt, Don't Shop
If you are considering bringing a new pet into your home, there are countless animals waiting for a family to love them.

Animal shelters and rescue groups are filled with happy, loving pets. Whereas many of the puppies sold in pet stores were born in puppy mills, where the conditions can be so bad that they often result in health problems for the animal. Erase the stigma that rescue pets can be antisocial or aggressive! Most of these pets wound up homeless because of a move or divorce, not because they did anything wrong, and are typically house-trained. Bringing a new pet is a huge decision and not one that should be done impulsively. But if this is something you’ve wanted for awhile, check out the shelters and change a life.

I have adopted my last dog.It´s been 8 years since then. He chose us in an incredible story-he just stopped and sat at my door for hours-and we accepted him. My family and I love pets, nature, animals in general.

Volunteer at a shelter to help to socialize animals to prepare them for adoption. I volunteer at the Palm Spriongs CA Animal Shelter and the experience is most rewarding.

I donate my time, money and skills to Battle for the Bully "Changing the Perception", I cannot foster or adopt at this time but will in the future. Pit Bulls have stolen my heart!
