Xiane rambles about eco-issues, gardening, crafts, and life.
It's true, I can't save all the stray animals, nor all the abandoned or abused ones in the world. I can't even do it in my own city.
That doesn't mean that I can't help.
I had been putting off making this commitment until Threeravens.net was more financially solvent, more established. But you know what? Looking at the photos of the sweet puppies currently being fostered by luna2005.etsy.com
, and the sweet face of my wonderful and loving Squeegee Cat, I know that it's time. I can't afford not to do this, because my heart won't let me behave otherwise.
This is to let everyone know that not only can I do this, but you can too. I'm going to be donating 10% of every sale from Threeravens.net
to the Cleveland County Humane Society
. They are a fantastic group of animal lovers, and their shelter is no-kill. It's where I found Squeegee, and I can testify that these folk take excellent care of their charges. They are particularly good to cats, which are treated rather shabbily in my area. [people in the Carolinas seem to favour dogs. Black cats are treated the worst of all.]
My message today doesn't stop there. If you love animals, you can help in your area! Not everyone can foster or even adopt an animal, but that doesn't mean that you can't stop in and spend time with them. Even small contributions can help, too. To find the shelters in your area, take a look at petfinder.com
. To help feed animals every day with one simple click, go to theanimalrescuesite.com
Thank you for reading this. Please take some time today to hug your pet for me, if you have one. I'm a big softie, and I love them all.
