I found what turned out to be a 14 year old Chow/Mix wandering in my neighborhood. His fur was over grown and matted into a flat hard mess. His teeth were real dirty and he was under weight so my vet. thinks that he was on the street for a few months. He got all of his shots up to date and had his teeth deep cleaned. Once I took him to the doggie parlor and had all of his hair shaved off (except for his cute face and the end of his tail) we found a beautiful old gentleman with an adorable...

Once I took him to the doggie parlor and had all of his hair shaved off (except for his cute face and the end of his tail) we found a beautiful old gentleman with an adorable smile. I have three other rescues that welcomed him with open paws. What ever time he has left on this planet will be spent with love and comfort. Oh, and I named him Argos the faithful dog of Odysseus from Homer's Odyssey. I feel blessed to have my sweet kids in my life. I couldn't have it any other way. Blessings to all who understand that we are caretakers of the world and the animals in it, not the owners.

There are 2 cats hanging around the building where I live. One is a young female (under a year old) and the other is an older female. The older female follows my dog whever she goes. I have brought the older female into my apartment but she will only stay a few minutes before she starts crying to go out. I live on the first floor so I just open the window and out she goes. My window is not far from the ground. Each time I bring her in she stays a little longer, I'm hoping she'll stay...

My window is not far from the ground. Each time I bring her in she stays a little longer, I'm hoping she'll stay in before it gets cold. The younger female is just starting to warm up to me and my and my dog. Each day she comes a little closer and I am hoping to get her inside too.

Charles, they are probably not spayed or neutered. Remember I can help you with this.

Thanks Elaine. I think the older one is already pregnant and the younger looks like something bit her on the back but I can't get close enough to see what is actually wrong with her.

Since I am housebound and handicapped I can only work in Facebook but I have worked approximately 12 hours a day into early morning to facilitate several happy endings for cats that were incarcerated at the ACC's in NYC- via direct adopters and rescue arrangements.

the ACC is horrible! i got a 13 week old feral kitten off death row there and she was an absolute sweetheart. only there because she's feral and had a tiny URI. i also am semi-housebound right now due to my shitty stomach, so i'm always sharing animals on death row and donating to rescues/chipins. it's important that we are sharing, it takes just ONE share to find that stray animal an owner. good job to everyone who helps an animal, no matter if its leaving water bowls out in the summer for...

I use face book to sign petitions global animal issues, and go on animal welfare marches, demo's and have my own campaigns against Jamie Oliver and bullfighting ~ Network for animals for misleading their supporters in uk. ~ Korean Authorities to end the dog and cat meat trade. I am veggie / vegan for over 25 years. love food, love live.

I've currently share my home with 6 cats, have been feeding and caring for the strays (both cats & Dogs) around my home for years. I carry both cat and dog food in my car at all times and always have time to spend feeding a stray or wild cat or dog.

The wife and I have become active this year with Save the Giants. We have fostered many Great Danes this year, rescuing them from kill shelters across Oklahoma. We even had our first Foster Fail with one female Great Dane that was in a puppy mill prior to being dropped at a kill shelter (assume she was not worth breeding anymore). Reading her history and the documentation that would follow her on down the stream, I talked my wife into keeping *Scarlet* who has become such a big part of the...

The wife and I have become active this year with Save the Giants. We have fostered many Great Danes this year, rescuing them from kill shelters across Oklahoma. We even had our first Foster Fail with one female Great Dane that was in a puppy mill prior to being dropped at a kill shelter (assume she was not worth breeding anymore). Reading her history and the documentation that would follow her on down the stream, I talked my wife into keeping *Scarlet* who has become such a big part of the family. Loving, protective and well behaved...I couldn't ask for a better addition to our family. We had since rescued 2 more Danes and one Ridgeback. It is disturbing the amount of cruelty and neglect there is out there. Unfortunately for the bigger breeds, they are typically placed up for euthanasia quicker than the smaller breeds, regardless of temperament, due to their size and facilities not being able to feed and house them.

I like this but have to say I've done them all! Foster, rescued, adopted, helped a stray and volunteered! Oh and educated others! It was the best deduction I've ever made next to Dwight but my furniture would disagree! Lol

Well I volunteer every single day cross-posting animals in shelters, helping with transport, donating money, helping find them homes, everything I can do. I personally rescued and adopted a cat from a West Virginia Kill shelter and had her flown all the way to vancouver canada. I also rescued a German shepherd from a Georgia shelter and he is being flown here as well. There are many aspects of animal rescue that I'm involved in.

Well I volunteer every single day cross-posting animals in shelters, helping with transport, donating money, helping find them homes, everything I can do. I personally rescued and adopted a cat from a West Virginia Kill shelter and had her flown all the way to vancouver canada. I also rescued a German shepherd from a Georgia shelter and he is being flown here as well. There are many aspects of animal rescue that I'm involved in. I'm an advocate against animal abuse and try via petitions and emails to have laws changed and strengthened to protect animals from abuse/ neglect. I maintain 4 tribute pages for abused animals and use them to Highlight the need for stricter laws. I have rescued lost stray dogs from the street, pigeons in a box in someones car, fostered animals, you name it I have done it when it comes to animals. They are my FIRST priority.Everyone can do "something" to help protect all animals, creatures on this Earth~ The power of the Internet has made it possible to save lives globally~.

I have been and still am fostering abandoned kittens and dumped cats in my county. I have fostered approximately 30 cats and kittens, mostly kittens this summer, helping them get healthy and strong so they could be spayed/neutered and put up for adoption to find their forever homes. I am also a volunteer for a TNR group in our area. Orlando, FL
