Be The Change - Adopt Responsibly

Thanks to mom's schedule this week (guilt, guilt), we missed the Be The Change blog hop this week. We really wanted to share our passion though and it is definitely Adopt Responsibly.

First, we believe that there are plenty of wonderful pet companions in shelters all over the world just waiting for loving humans to come get them.

Secondly, we believe that humans who adopt pets need to know what the responsibilities are. Adopting a pet is bringing an animal into your home and promising to love and care for it. This means just because the kitten or puppy grows up and isn't as cute as it once was, the animal is still part of your family. You wouldn't take one of your children to a shelter, why would you take a pet?

Pedigree has a number of great short videos like this one that in 30 seconds really expresses what it means for the animal who is adopted. Mom says that a human who loves their pet is even happier. I will have to take her word for that - along with my 4 kitty sibs and two dogs that live downstairs with her mom. We were all adopted from a shelter or people who could no longer care for us.

Great post friend. We agree with you 100%. Wish we could somehow get the word out to people who need it - probably those that don't read our blogs!! Adopting a pet is a big responsibility and not to be taken lightly. Good job friend. Oh, by the wsay, forgot to tell you you looked very handsome in your tux.

Very well said, my friend! Mom & I both totally agree, of course. Mom says I'm a poster child for pet adoption...whatever that means... *snickers*

We see so many peeples wanting to adopt for the rong reesons - selfish reesons. They want wot they want and they want it now with no regard to wot is best for the animal. Should be coz you want a best furrend furever wot be your fambly and you want to gib that furrend the bestest life evah.
