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...

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.

I live in india and last week saved a young cow on the road side by my kids school that was going to die. it took alittle perserverance but in the end we got a vet and it got the treatment it needed. it was a good feeling to get it on its feet again. there is alot of animal problems in india, especially dogs, its a sad state of affairs but I can only do what I can as the systems...

I have adopted 3 dogs from the Eureka, Ks shelter and right now I have 6 puppies that were heading to the shelter trying to find homes for them. I'm checking into opening a doggy daycare /boarding Kennel cause I love animals.

This beautiful baby in my profile picture was dumped pretty close to where I live. I had been taking food to another stray dog that had been hanging around the same area for a couple of months and one day she approached. So I fed her, too. I had been doing this for a couple of months and when I went to do it one day, Animal Control had posted a notice saying "Do Not Feed the Stray Dogs-if you are caught, you will be charged".

Wow, I didn't know it was a crime to feed a starving animal. So I decided I had to try and take them home with me before they got picked up and taken to the pound. Unfortunately, we were only able to get the one to our home to stay. But at least we tried to help them both. I don't know what happened to the other stray; he disappeared. But my new baby is now happy, getting healthy and is just the sweetest dog even though you can tell by her demeanor that she had been abused. She licks me all the time and I think it's her way of saying "Thanks".

Everyone of my gorgoues cats has come to me as a stray, and I have taken them into my house, given them love, good food and got them healthy again. In return I have their unconditional love, loyalty, and plenty of wonderful cuddles and affection from them.......... Animals are drawn to me as I even have wombats, possums and deer coming into my house! Something magic about the energy here!

I never realized what all was involved in animal rescue until I joined the Palo Pinto County Humane Society. There are never enough hours in a day to do everything you would like to do. We all are volunteers with no pay. We spend our personal money many times just to help others out. Everyone needs to pull together and DEMAND that we have stricter and tougher laws on animal abuse and neglect cases. Maybe then some of this nonsense will decrease. Talk to your mayor, police department...

Everyone needs to pull together and DEMAND that we have stricter and tougher laws on animal abuse and neglect cases. Maybe then some of this nonsense will decrease. Talk to your mayor, police department and sheriff office and tell them things HAVE to change. Go to city council meetings and ask that mandatory spay and neuter laws be required and make the breeders pay a huge permit fee to breed their animals for profit. I am personally sick of watching what is going on and what people are getting away with. The animals have no voice but ours....so please help.

I have ended up with a new stray cat. I live in a rural area and he found his way here. He isn't doing very well with the other cats. He will have to stay outside. He can have a cozy winter spot to stay in when it freezes.

I rescued one from next door. The little guy had been left out in the hot sun tied to a fence for at least 1 1/2 days. No food or water.
