    Cool, Calm And... Collected

    I was 16 and home alone on a rare day without the combined responsibilities of work, school and athletics; it was a beautiful, clear day and the back door was open to let in the fresh spring air.  Suddenly I heard a thump and a splash outside in the back yard and looked out to...

    Right Next Door

    Yeah, I live next to a retired guy who runs a puppy mill. I want to get rid of it for many reasons. Mainly it is cruel to the dogs, but I can smell the urine from my front yard some days, and the barking keeps me up on other times. Anyone know how to LEGALLY get rid of it? This...

    Love My Booky Bear

    I adopted a shepherd/sharpei mix from the pound a couple days after christmas last year. he was for my 7 year old son, but he's become like my second son! I love him so much, even though he's eaten 8 pairs of shoes, gotten into the trash dozens of times, and barks his lungs out...

    They Love Us Un-intentionally No Matter What We Do

    And that is so true, no matter what the animal or pet you may have they love you even if they are treated badly. In my spare time I help at a local sanctuary for horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, rabbits, anything that has been neglected, kicked out, needs tlc and it's always hard...

    As I Write This..

    I'm holding a cuddly puppy rescued from the animal shelter on his "last day."  He's not mine for keeps--I'm a foster mom for shelter dogs.  It's always incredibly hard saying goodbye, but this helps homeless animals find families and allows me to help as many...

    Hopefully I'll Save Many More In Later Years.

     I've saved a few animals. I've found and cared for baby squirrels twice. One fell from our attic into our utility closet, and the other fell from the nest and impaled himself on our fence. I've saved many a caterpillar from my dorm room freshman year. I was silly about it...
