    Your Own Property

    I hate it when people get pets and they turn them loose outside and wonder the streets all the time.  There's this one woman across the street from me is a good example.  She's got this little white poodle she turns loose all the time outside and hardly ever lets it in.  I see...

    My Friends, My Family, My Pets

    The animals that live with me (and probablly think of me as "mom") are all of those relationships to me, and so much more. Animals have the right to live, as as a human being. That's how I treat them.

    Dog Snob??

    Not too long ago, I had a bizarre encounter with one of my friends. Her and her mother have always had tons of dogs. They've always lived in spaces too tiny for all these pets. Big dogs too--Great Danes, German shepherds, Dobermans, even once a half-wolf dog (?) ...

    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr This Gets Me Mad!

    I don't think that I will ever understand how people can treat their pets as disposable. Mine are a huge part of my family, and are treated as such. I can't imaging ever neglecting an animal that is in my care, giving one away, or letting one run astray. I'm the person who even...

    I Hate Irresponsible Pet Owners

       This is one subject that I can really get fired up about. People who get animals and throw them away like they are some old discareded toy. I've got several animals here that were treated in such a manner and have taken them in since I was a little kid.   ...

    Lifetime Of Love

    People that can abandon pets amaze me. How heartless and cold. I have a ranch full of critters abandonded by owners. I can understand a person no longer being able to afford the cost and finding a good home for them but that is another story. I have Horses that were just turned...

    I Have Seen a Lot

    I have seen a lot of times where someone would say they took their cat down to the old farm in the country and dropped it off.  When we lived on post in Ft. Hood, Texas people would complain all the time about people just letting their animals loose all over because...

    i got bumped off of a site

    because i simply stated my opinion that i'm sick of people treating their pets as disposable items. i used to do adoptions and i've heard every excuse there is. you take on the pet's lifetime as your responsibility.

    Homeless Animals

    it irks me when people throw animals on the side of the road. just because they can't provide for them anymore. people who pitch animals need a major awaking.

    I Wish That We Could Get Everyone To Spay Their Cats

    I'm a caregiver to a feral cat colony and it's not an easy job but it is very rewarding. Everytime I leave there I want to cry because I just feel so sad that the cats have to live the way they do. I'm blessed to be able to care for my colony really well because I'm able to...

    My Belief

    My belief is that when you sign on to adopt an animal- it's yours until it dies a natural death after a long and happy life. To me, if you aren't sure you can take care of something long-term, get a hamster or something else that only lives for a short amount of time. If you...
