    I am trying to open up a home

    where I can gather all the strays in the area and feed them and help them medically because my city is putting out poison for strays to eat and then they die and rot in the streets. If not poisoned, then they are abused. this breaks my heart soooo much. I want to help them, but...

    It's so sad, walking down the street to the bus

    stop one morning, and a poor, skinny animal comes up to you and rubs your leg. You feed it what you can but you can't take it in, because your parents don't any/more pets, or someone in your house is allergic.

    Poor Babies

    I don't like all species, but I'd adopt even the scary animals if I could. I resonate, in a way, with the abandoned of the world. I don't want them to hurt. I don't want them to be alone. I want to help them how I can. Even creepy things that I don't really want to touch, things...

    If I could, I would take in all strays

    and give them a home. I don't think any animal deserves to be homeless, without someone there to care for it.

    Lending A Hand

    Since when I became aware to things around me, I became very passionate with animals. I loved them much as my friends, or a family member. To me, they are also the ones to share your problems with, they also do us favor as much as we do to them. How lucky we are to have them...

    RESCUE

    If I could I would rescue every animal that didnt or doesnt have a home. Animals to me are so precious. They are just like children. To look into the eyes of a cat or dog and see their innocence is amazing. They love without question and my heart goes out to them. I PRAY the...
