    Unfortunately, I can't have a zoo.  at least not yet.  We are moving in 2008 and will have more land, a pond and a much larger house - so I must be patient, and just do what I can for now. I love cats and other furry critters, though not crazy about dogs, unless it...

    Please Adopt Our Animals! ...but Only If You Meet These Impossible Requirements.

    First off, I am a strong believer in no-kill animal shelters.  I think euthanizing a healthy or treatable animal just because nobody wants to adopt it is unethical.  I recently got a job at Petsmart, where they have a local no-kill organization display their...
