I say that I have the best daughter in the world because she is always willing to help out an animal in need. Many times she goes above and beyond to help them.
Tonight we drove by an area where a house was torn down that used to have a lot of cats running around and sleeping on the porch. The house was torn down a few weeks ago and I stupidly thought that whoever had lived there must have made arrangements for the cats. Whether it was the person who used to live there or the person in charge of that person or whoever, they did not. We discovered the cats there this evening. She drove right to the store and bought cat food and a water bowl for them.
We went back and they all ran into the woods that surround the house. To our surprise we found that someone had been leaving food for them. Then we walked around behind a big tree into a nice little shaded spot and there was a lot of old empty food containers and cat food bags. It looked as if someone was trying to keep them fed and watered. We did wonder if a homeless person might have been staying there also. It was getting dark so we couldn’t really get a good look behind the hedge of trees and bushes.
Tomorrow I will call our No-Kill shelter and pray that they will for once have room for animal that I call about! At least we know they have enough food and some water.
So I have to say it again, I have the best daughter in the world! She is an animal hero.

Do you know someone who could use a helping hand? Do you know someone who might be suffering from Compasion Fatigue? Maybe you could sit with there loved one for an hour a day or once a week. Buy them some groceries. Cut their grass. Clean their house. Bring them library books or your books that you have read. Send them a pizza. Any number of things that we might take for granted would be most welcomed and appreciated by them. Look around and see who you could give a helping hand too. You can make the world a better place. You might even prevent someone’s death or suicide. Give it some thought and pass the idea around.

This is heartbreaking. I saw this on CNN and wanted to share it with anyone who will take the time to read the article. Hopefully the more people who know about this disgusting practice the more that can be done to stop it. I can’t fathom how anyone could do this to another person. Thank goodness one slave master saw the ugly dark evilness of what he had grown up knowing as normal. Now he is working to stop this horrible evil. The article has stunning and heartbreaking photos and reading about the woman whose baby was murdered is so sad that I feel sick to my stomach. Please read this article and pass it on. Maybe if we all work together this evil can be stopped.

This fabulous dog survived the gas chamber. I can’t believe we are still doing something so vile and cruel to animals. There has to be a better option.
Picture from Good Morning America
Some dogs and cats not only don’t get killed by the gas but end up being burned alive in the pile of animals that have been gassed. What did you think happened to them afterwards? Ever given it a thought. There has to be a better option.
What kind of person can do this job? I don’t want to know anyone like that. Even if that person starts off with some sort of good intentions and sound reasoning it has to do something horrible to their mental health. We can send a person to the moon but we can’t figure this out.
No animal should have to live through that or die that way. Can you just imagine their horror. They have to know what is about to happen. They have the best sense of smell ever and they are the most intuitive of animals. There has to be a better option.
Please, please donate to your local shelters and even vet’s offices for spaying and neutering to be done. Donate food, time, energy and love to the animals who are in shelters. If you don’t help them who will?

When you get to the part about the geese if you don’t cry or come close to it then you must not be human. I had no idea that geese were that way. It’s hearbreaking and heavenly at the same time. Thank God for these loving angels who helped these animals.

I am totally happy with myself today. I actually made it to the humane society and walked a dog! Probably the only dog who wanted to eat more than walk. At least he did his business and had a slight stroll.
I am really going to try to do this more often. It just has to be done. So think about what you can do to help your local shelter. While running errands can you stop in and walk one dog for a few minutes? Or spend one afternoon walking several? Maybe one saturday a month cleaning cages? How about picking up a load of laundry to do? I found out today that I can even pick up just a load that needs to be dried. Can you buy an extra bag of dog or cat food to donate? How about when they are on sale BOGO? Recently I went to Goodwill and purchased 7 little baby receiving blankets to donate. It only cost 7 dollars. But seven little sweeties will have a soft blanky to lay on. If you really think about it I am sure there are many ways that you can help out. So won’t you please think about it and help out a local shelter? Thank you if you do!!!

I watched the most heart warming story on the news a while ago. A mother in Pakistan is attending the first grade with her two young sons. Most importantly she has the blessing and encouragement of her husband. What a wonderful thing to see when what we usually see from that part of the world is the exact opposite. I loved that the husband said if his wife is educated then his family will benefit from it. I am so happy for this woman.
