Support Homeless Pets, Please!

North Shore Animal League America

As you can see I have added some pet related Banner & Widgets throughout this site. I have been a strong supporter of animal organizations for a long time. Unfortunately, due to my state of unemployment for the past year I have had to discontinue my monetary donations to my favorite organizations. While being a stay at home step-mom has its rewards, the loss of income has its disadvantages.

The purpose of adding these widgets is to help support homeless pets and shelters. For the moment it is the only way I can help support a cause that means a great deal to me. I receive no financial compensation whatsoever from these links. By clicking on the link you will be directed to their site where you can adopt a pet, which would be absolutely awesome, or donate a little something! A little something goes a long way, and everything is greatly appreciated. Also, see my list of links at the end of this post. These are organizations that I have supported myself personally.

Please help out if you can. Please do not buy pets from pet stores that use puppy mills and backyard breeders. They are under terrible conditions and just bred for monetary reasons with no regard to their well-being. If you buy a pet from a pet store you are unwillingly supporting the puppy mill industry. If you still find that buying from a pet store is the right thing for you, you can research the puppy providers of a pet store easily by doing a Google search. Make sure they do genetic health testing. Most of them do not and this is very important. Giving a homeless pet a warm and loving home is an incredible experience for which you will be rewarded dearly. “Adopt a pet, save a life”.

We currently share our home with Thor (feline and prince of static electricity), a bird, a hamster and a few fish. All are, of course, rescued pets. Well, except for the fish. We are looking to adopt a puppy in the next couple of weeks. This is the perfect time of year to find lots of adorable pets in desperate need of a warm and loving home! There is a Petfinder Quick Search widget on the left side bar to help you get started effortlessly.
