I have a dream that one day I will win a bazillion dollars and purchase a huge plot of land somewhere. And on that land, I will build the country’s largest no-kill animal shelter. Dogs would have large, heated, indoor/outdoor kennels. Cats will have their own private windowsills. And every other animal will be accepted, loved, nurtured and taken care of until the Lord calls. We’d even work with other animal shelters that are not no-kill, to ship animals to my new, imaginary shelter so that one day, no animal would ever be put to death.
Sadly, I did not win a bazillion dollars today. Fortunately, there are organizations that are helping shelter pets. The HomeAgain Pet Recovery Service is currently running the “HomeAgain Hearts, Share Your Heart & Help Shelter Pets” campaign that offers pet lovers a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day by sharing a heart. For each heart posted on your Facebook page, they will donate $0.25 cents (up to $5,000) to the PetFinder.com foundation.
Please take a moment to visit the HomeAgain PetRescuers Facebook page, post a heart to your Facebook page, which will contribute towards helping shelter pets around the country. We’re almost half way there (hitting $2048.00 as I type) so hitting the $5,000 before the deadline of February 14 should be easy, peasy.
