It’s no secret how much I love animals! To me, they are unique and beautiful creatures, each with its own personality. Nothing warms my heart faster than reading or hearing about an animal who is happy, healthy and thriving. And nothing breaks my heart faster than learning about animals who are neglected, abused or alone.
The animal activism page features posts like Pets of the Week, which highlight available adoptable pets located in Pittsburgh or surrounding area shelters; Tips and Tricks, which are articles on how to better care for your pet; and Around the World, which are reports about animals like big cats, elephants, sharks and more.
I also use this space to shed light on the plight of animals in captivity, such as fur farm animals, factory animals and circus animals. Sometimes, it won’t be easy reading. Sometimes, it’ll be horrible and gut-wrenching and graphic. But it will be necessary reading, because it will be the truth. And if that truth can help just one person view animals as living, breathing, feeling individuals instead of just things, then that’s really all that matters.
Everyday, I hope for the end to animal cruelty and that every animal can be a part of a loving home. I know we can get there someday. And for the sake of the millions of innocent souls, lets work together to make that day come soon. Please click the two kitties above to read my activism articles.
Fact: 7 million cats and dogs enter national animal shelters per year. 4 million never get out.
