Anyone out there?
I was just wondering if there were any other pet lovers here at WA. I'm talking about the ones that treat their pets as family.
Here in my home town, people leave their dogs tied up even if they have a fence, no protection from the elements, half the time no fresh water, and left standing in their own mess. Heck, they don't even spend time with their pet.
Since I'm such a critter lover, I have earned quite a few bad names, just because I will knock on their door and tell them about how to take care of their pet. I wont lie, I have even resorted to theft of a pet just to get them out of a bad situation and to find them a better home, their forever home. I know its wrong, but I call it saving a life.
Here at my house all my animals are family. (8% of them have been recused from the shelter or from other people that just don't know how to take care of them.
I worked at a shelter for 6 years, and the things I saw would send chills down your spine. But working there I learned so much about people, the good and the bad. I worked closely with our vet and learned hundreds of different treatments for dogs and cats.
One year while working for the shelter I went to all the schools and gave lectures to kids on how to take care of their pet, answered their questions and even handed out permission slips to take home to the parents, about coming to the shelter and volunteering to walk dogs, pet the cats and even help clean the kennels.
As for me I have rescued all sorts of animals, dogs, cats, snakes, tarantulas, my 2 raccoons, a calf which stayed inside my house until I found it a forever home, and most resent a pot belly pig whose name is tootsie. She is the newest addition to my family and she is spoiled rotten.
Well that's enough about my critters and my complaining, I really do ramble when it concerns pets. Thanks for reading WA.
