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.

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~.

3 years ago I found my Chester, male red tabby, starving and skinny with flea allergy dermatitis on his back. I had seen him before outside the previous winter all healthy and fat. I tried to get him to come to me but was skiddish and ran away. I brought out some can food and put in on a rock that is about 50 ft from my back patio. I got him to eat and kept feeding him closer and closer to my patio. He finally was living on my back porch in a chair that I had made a shelter with blankets and...

3 years ago I found my Chester, male red tabby, starving and skinny with flea allergy dermatitis on his back. I had seen him before outside the previous winter all healthy and fat. I tried to get him to come to me but was skiddish and ran away. I brought out some can food and put in on a rock that is about 50 ft from my back patio. I got him to eat and kept feeding him closer and closer to my patio. He finally was living on my back porch in a chair that I had made a shelter with blankets and plastic over a box for about 3 months until it started to get cold outside. That's where he slept and got healthy. I took him to a Cat foster facility and they took him in and checked him over and gave him his shots. They called me the next day to come back and pick him up because he was too sad to find a foster to take care of him. When I got there I went back to his cage and as soon as I picked him up he started purring, more than I had ever heard him before. So I took him home and introduced him to my other two cats, which took some time for them to adjust. He has been my indoor 3rd kitty now for 3 years and he's the sweetest and most loving of all my cats. He chose me. This isn't the first time I have helped a other starving cats in the same manner and have taken them to a shelter in the past but this is the first one I just could not give up. I love this cat!

Last year we adopted a boxer that had been dumper and when she was found she was under 40 lbs. I was looking for a lap dog but when I saw her I took her home and she fit right in with my two rescue dogs I already had. We had her exactly 16 months and she weighed 96 lbs. She developed cancer and had to be put down. We recently adopted a nother dog whose owner didn't want him. He's healthy and happy and plays with our other pets.

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...

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...
