Shelter Awareness Day
See this picture of me? That's a shelter face!
Vinny was in the shelter, too. Julie volunteered there years ago until it became impossible to go without bringing home a cat.
Any dogs or cats we've had were rescued and that's the theme of this very important day. If a pet is not in your future, then give to the local shelter. It'll do your heart good! They have need for the simplest of things; just give them a call and find out what you can do.
Taking care of animals is all part of responsible citizenship. Spaying and neutering is so important. Education is even more so, as children grow up to either respect the animals that share the Earth with us or they don't. It's up to us.
No matter what our circumstances, most of us are living a pretty good life. Let's share it!
