Animal rescues and shelters are always in desperate of help. “Help” can come in many different forms, but the fact of the matter is homeless animals need us. Shelters work tirelessly to help save millions of furry lives every year, so let me share some ways that you can give back to your local animal shelter in honor of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week.
Meesi. Bud. Buddy Pal. Meesa. Meesins. Siamese; these are all nicknames I’ve come up with in the last year of having Leila in my life. I think “Bud” is probably the most used, simply because my baby Siamese has transformed into my serious buddy. She’s my pal. I can’t believe it’s been a year since this girl blessed me with her presence. Over the span of this past year, I’ve come to believe that perhaps Leila was put in my life by way of my heart cat, Edison.
Animal shelters need help year round. Whether it’s with adoptions, volunteering or donations, it’s always a good time to assist rescues. August 20, 2017 is National Homeless Animal Day, so let’s discuss some ways that you can be a big help to the homeless animals in your area and around the world.
Recently my mom and stepdad adopted an adorable puppy, so I was inspired to create a new puppy checklist! This list can actually be used for the adoption of any dog, whether they are a baby or senior. Feel free to print the list, share it on social media or simply download it for personal use!
Would you believe that my mom has never owned a dog in her adult life? Well, I’ve been wanting my mom to adopt a furry friend for years now and she finally did it. Granted, she had great reasons for not adopting a dog in recent years (which I wish more people would consider) – she was too busy with school and work, and my stepdad was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Recently, however, we got good news on my stepdad and things are looking up. So when I tagged my mom in a post on the Arizona Animal Welfare League Facebook page, I hardly expected her to take it seriously. Then less than 24 hours later, my mom became a dog mom to the adorable Cooper. Allow me to introduce you to this super cute little muffin!
