    Or at least with numerous animals. As a kid, I used to try to nurse birds back to health. I once took in a dog... a pomeranian... who had gotten away from his owners. I put up flyers & kept him until they called & came to get him. I found my third & youngest cat...

    Animals Vs People

    My Mimi says i'm selfish. She says I don't help people who need it, says I don't do anything to help anyone but me. On Sundays, I try very hard to volunteer with an amazing organization called Pet Angels. When I tell Mimi I help animals, she doesn't understand my point of view...

    A Big Ol' Softie ...

    I'm the sort of person you should NEVER take to an animal shelter ... because I'd end up in tears and wanting to bring all the animals home with me.  That's the way I am, I just can't walk by an animal in need. We've had several experiences of taking on stray animals since...

    I Rescued a Hen Today!

    Well sort of.  I found a stray hen clucking outside my window this afternoon.  My three cats were all looking interested but respectful. I guessed which of my neighbours might have got a hen and got it right first time. She had adopted 8 hens from a hen rescue...

    The Little Bird That Flew

         When I was about 6 or 7, we found a baby bird in a nest that had fallen out of a tree. We brought it home still in the nest, which had not broken apart.  That is probably what saved the baby bird.  My sister and I put it up high on the eves of the porch.  It didn...

    You look at those animals in need of help, you think, what if i was that animal and no one would help me from the winter, starvation , and etc.... That is cruel to see those animals on the street abandoned from the owners that were suppose to love and take care of them. If...

    Come On In!

    I've always had a thing about helping out animals. Even as a young kid. Once there was a cat up in a tree, and I didn't think it could get down. So I ran home to call the fire department, to have them come and get the cat out of the tree. The tree was a very tall one, even...
