We have found that the animals the people around us have neglected to the point of abuse are starving for food and water but will leave both of those for a pat on the head. And it breaks our hearts to see that. All they want is a pat on the head and they aren't even offered water or food.
We want to recognize the few people who do care, thank them and offer others who care a chance to help, too. If you would like to help any of these people, we suggest you contact them to see what they need. Sometimes they could use some volunteers. At other times financial help is greatly appreciated. But any time is a great time to let them know that what they do is appreciated. A "pat on the back" is appreciated as much by humans as it is by the animals we love. The two below were the only two who contacted us.
First, though, we'd like to say that we support adopting pets from shelters instead of buying from a pet store. You can read about our rescued little girl and more about adopting a pet here
If you live in the Barren County, KY area, this is a good shelter to adopt a pet from. PLEASE, if you want a pet, please adopt one from a shelter. They really need a home or they wouldn't be there. Visit Barren River Animal Welfare Association to find the pet you can love and that will love you back. Or you can use the link to petfinder.com below to find a pet in your area.

I saw Pets Alive on TV and what impressed me was, besides everything else they do, they provide a home for the New York carriage horses with a retirement home. They work most of their lives and had no where to go till Pets Alive provided a place where they can spend the rest of their days in peace and comfort. I thought that was so nice.
