Pets: Responsibility

"This is from the Humane Society of the United States website:

Knowing that pets usually have shorter lifespans than humans, you may have planned for your animal friend's passing. But what if you are the one who becomes ill or incapacitated, or who dies first? As a responsible pet owner, you provide your pet with food and water, shelter, veterinary care, and love. To ensure that your beloved pet will continue to receive this if something unexpected were to happen to you, it's critical to plan ahead."

"If you've grown up with pets, it can be hard to imagine life without them. But if you've never had a pet, the idea might seem a bit daunting. There are many encouraging reasons for having a companion of the animal kind.

Responsibility is usually the main word that springs to mind when thinking about getting a pet. Whether it is furry, finned, scaly or feathered, a pet is a definite commitment; a commitment that, according to most pet owners, turns out to be highly rewarding and regret-free."

"One way you can help keep cats and dogs safer in a fire is with pet rescue window decals that will alert rescue personnel that pets are inside your home. And you can get them free from the ASPCA. We are going to order some today."

"A Forever-Home Rescue Foundation is a non-profit animal rescue group that operates in the Northern Virginia / Washington Metropolitan area. We strive to make quality dogs available for adoption and do our best to match prospective adopters with the right animal!"

Pet Adoption and Dog Art

This makes me happy.

"When the Army plans to invade a city, it brings in the big guns.

Huntsville Animal Services is doing the same Sunday when it invades the Wal-Mart parking lot on University Drive with dozens of animals for adoption.

The city shelter is getting a big boost from the largest pet adoption agency in the world, the North Shore Animal League of New York, which will be helping with the adoption process as part of its Tour of Life 2008. "
"Dog Art Today is devoted to daily dog art from around the world. Features include contemporary dog art, the history of dogs in art, dog art auctions, books, posters, fashion and decor."
