As most of you know, I love my pugs. They are the snorty, smelly lights of my life. This past year I lost one of them – Nellie – pictured above. She was the best dog in the whole world, as I’m sure many of you feel about your own pets. The best part about Nellie? She was a rescue dog. I’m sorry that she ever had to suffer before I got her (when she was five years old) but I’m very thankful that she was a rescue and ended up with me. Nellie lived the high life after her rescue, and she had a particularly special relationship with my dad. They understood each other.
Did you know that approximately 25% of animals in shelters are pure breeds? A lot of people don’t know that. I love my rescues and prefer to get a pet that way than from a breeder. And as soon as I am ready, I will be adopting another small dog. In the meantime, I’d like to share three pet rescue organizations that need support:
There also may be organizations in your area that need your support. I encourage you to visit this link to Petfinder and find them. Shelters can always use money and time . . . or pet adoptions, of course! I know you’ll love your rescue pets just as much as I have loved mine.
