My best friend was a homeless white cat named Willow. He was found in a park by a neighbor up the street from me. When Willow was a kitten he had a gray spot between his ears. As Willow got older the gray spot disappeared. Willow lived 5 wonderful years with me and my roommate Jill. When willow was 5 he got cancer it and took over his body. Willow had many, many treatments to try to rid him of the cancer, but they did not work. Willow was so sick. My roommate Jill made the decision to have...

My roommate Jill made the decision to have Willow put to sleep, a decision I could not have made, without wondering was there something ells I could have done to make Willow better. I'm forever thankful that Jill was able to make the incredibly difficult decision to have Willow put to sleep, to end his suffering.

MAKE SPAY/NEUTER PRICES REASONABLE/FRE FOR THOSE THAT CAN'T AFFORD IT. EVERY STATE HAS THEIR STORIES. MY LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY? WON'T LET ME FOSTER OR ADOPT, BECAUSE I HAD A HEART ATTACK IN 08 AND THE 2 LARGE DOGS I ADOPTED FROM THERE, HAD TO BE SURRENDERED. I HAD A FRIEND THAT WORKED IN THE BACK, TAKE CARE OF THEM AND MAKE SURE THEY WERE ADOPTED TO GOOD HOMES. IT'S NOW 2013 AND THE HUMANE SOCIETY HOLDS THAT AGAINST ME, AND WON'T LET ME HELP. THEY WON'T EVEN LET ME VOLUNTEER MY TIME. THEY HAD THE DONATIONS AND GRANTS TO BUILD A BRAND NEW SHELTER, BUT NOW THEY SHIP OUT THE SMALL AND ADOPTABLE ANIMALS TO OTHER STATES AND HOPEFULLY TO FOSTER PARENTS.(I DOUBT IT)ALL THEY HAVE LEFT IN THIS HUGH NEW FACILITY ARE PIT BULLS AND PIT MIXES, AS AS YOU KNOW THEY ARE RARELY ADOPTED, EVEN IF THEY HAVEN'T BEEN MADE BAD. OWNERS ARE BAD THAT TEACH THEM TO BE AGRESSIVE AND THEN DUMP THEM IN PLACES LIKE THE FORESTS WHERE I LIVE, TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES. I WILL KEEP PAYING THE ADOPTION FEES AND SPA/NEUTER AND SHOT FEES, TO DO MY PART TO HEPT THESE DEFENSELESS CREATURES. DISPITE MY LOCAL HUMANE SOCIETY. I STILL HAVE 9 LEFT AND I ASSURE YOU ALL THAT I TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEM AND HAVE OTTER SO ATTACHED I PROBABLY CAN'T PART WITH ANY MORE OF THEM...I LOVE THEM ALL SO MUCH.AND BY THE WAY I AM NOT A HOARDER..JUST A LOVER OF ANIMALS.CAN'T HAVE CATS BECAUSE THEY WOULD BE STUCK INSIDE ALL THE TIME, IN THESE WOODS, TOO DANGEROUS. AND I ALSO HAVE A BEARDED DRAGON AND YES HE IS WELL OFF AND GETS KISSES TOO!

I have 5 cats and one dog at the time. I had 9 cats but the three older ones had to go to kitty heaven within 3 years of eachother and then my Ossy boy had kidney failure in June of last year. Now I still have my 5 other cats and my one old dog who is 14 which is 98 in human years. I have worked at shelters and I have adopted and loved the animals in shelters. I wish I could adopt more but I can't at this time. God Bless them all. Jude

We will always have rescue animals! They make the best forever pets and are so grateful to have a second chance in life. We have a golden retriever named Buddy, who we refer to as "The Sweetness"...his spirit is precious beyond words. He had such a tough start in life, as so many rescues do...how anyone could starve and hit any animal is beyond comprehension. He was also left beside a highway so it was a real miracle that he wasn't hit and eventually found his way to us.
