I woke up early to write this post because it has been on my mind all last night and the entire week. I have a neighbor who does NOT take care of his dog. His dog is in kept in filthy conditions with flies all over him and hardly any water. He has never been out of his kennel for the past 2 months. Furthermore, the dog is sweet as can be. He only barks when he is hungry and I can understand that.
He is black but actually covered in dust.
The worst part is, I wrote to the local humane society and I got ZERO response. It is because the shelter is already FULL of pit bulls and why would they want to take in one more. There are so many worst and tragic stories out there, they can’t save them all – I guess. What a pity. It is annoying enough that people continue to breed dogs, sell them and they all end up in shelters and Craigslist. Millions of dogs are killed each year because they are unwanted.
This weighs on my heart heavily and I urge you all to seriously make some room in your heart and home for an unwanted pet this holiday season. They will change your life in ways you never can imagine. Humans and animals are suppose to live in peace and harmony. We have so much to learn from one another and the system is broken right now. Rescue a pet in your area using Petfinder.com and find your new best friends.
November is Adopt-A-Senior pet month!
