    Refuge

    It doesn't matter what kind of animal, my heart goes out to them all. If I see a stray, I pick it up. There has been times, for some strange reason, they find me. The homeless critters know I will do no harm to them. Instant trust, I see it in their eyes. My home will always be...

    PLEASE Spay Or Neuter Your Pets

    I must say that I posted this on a comment to a previous story.  However, I thought it might need to be posted as a story.  I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the animal shelter (the POUND) puts over 13,000 dogs and cats down every year.  I'm a fanatic about neutering...

    It's My Belief

    Someone has to give their voice for those with none.  That's why I feel so deeply about animal causes.  They don't get heard without a little help, and they need help!
