    Last Week...

    was one of the best weeks of my life. I fostered 2 orphan puppies and kept them for a week. It was the most fun I've had in a long while. I took them to their adoption event today, and as soon as we got there, each found a family that fell in love with them. I was crying the day...

    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...

    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...

    If I could go back in time, I'd force my family to put me up for adoption so I could go to a family that loves me unconditionally.
