It's very easy to be an armchair quarterback in rescue - to say you would never give up your pets - to say you would do things differently - to sit in the comfort of your home and criticize others for their decisions.
But tonight I ask you to take the high road. I ask you to count your blessings if you have a home and are employed and your family is safe and healthy and stable. And I ask you to be compassionate toward others who are not as fortunate.
Macie's owner is being transferred by her employer. She has very little choice, and has had almost no time to plan. There are few homes that will accommodate her family, let alone their pets, and they have no time to be choosy. So Macie must find a new home this week.
Please click here to learn more about Macie and our other adoptable pets. Macie needs a foster or adopter NOW!! So take up the baton - be supportive instead of critical. Be helpful instead of turning a blind eye.
If you can't ADOPT,
FOSTER. Learn more about this no-cost, short-term commitment. Fosters save lives by just offering a little space and care. Remember that these animals are living in tiny metal and concrete prisons, so no matter how small your place is that you can offer, or how many hours you work, it's better than where they are now. Your offer to foster will be the primary reason why one more animal lives - it's that easy, and the feeling you'll get from knowing YOU are the reason why that animal is alive is so amazing! If you can't FOSTER,
DONATE. We want to save more animals but cannot always afford it. Rescue is only responsible when we are financially prepared to give each animal everything it needs to successfully prepare it for adoption. If you prefer, give to your local rescue, or pledge to a death-row animal online. Give in kind (food, supplies, blankets and towels.) Give your time at adoption events, fundraisers, transports. Email me for more information. If you can't DONATE,
NETWORK. You don't need to plaster your facebook page with hundreds of sad dog faces. Just pick one animal online or at your local shelter or rescue and share it with people you know who might be interested or might know someone who is. One animal at a time.
