Re: You are awesome.


A happy Tuesday to you all!

I am interrupting my ongoing series with some great news.

Sherri the Second Chance Animal Shelter Director came over to visit,
jumping up and down because one of you guys from Las Vegas sent a box of
Beds, plus a Check..

She said that she has been blown away with the response from so many of the
readers of Veterinary Secrets.

She claims that opening the mail has been kind of like Christmas- she goes to the
mailbox and is still getting donations from some of you wonderful supporters.

The Animal Shelter is now in a MUCH better financial place, and in large parts
THANKS to all of you.

Scooby, the small Lhasa that I featured in the video was recently adopted as well,
all this exposure has mean’t more people coming to see more of the dogs and cats
available for adoption.

Here is some more info for those of you looking to adopt a dog or cat from an
animal shelter..

Did you know that 7 million adoptable dogs & cats are killed each year due
mainly to overpopulation? Did you know that 25-30% of dogs for adoption
in animal shelters are purebred? The other 70-75%, of course, are lovable,
wonderful mixed-breed pets, just waiting for a chance to be your perfect
new friend.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that animal shelters and pet rescues are
filled with dog or cats that were discarded because they’re “bad”. Shelter
pets for adoption are wonderful companions who became the victims of family
tragedy, unlucky circumstances or irresponsible owners.

Saving Lives: Whether you adopt a pet from a local animal shelter or a rescue
organization, humane society or SPCA, you’re saving lives. That’s right: lives,
as in more than one. I know, I know????you only want to adopt one dog or cat, right?
Adoption saves more than just the life of the pet you adopt. If you adopt from
an animal shelter, you’re making room for another dog or cat, or you’re allowing
other dogs or cats at the shelter to be kept for a longer period of time, giving
them a better shot at being adopted. If you adopt from a humane society, an SPCA
or a rescue organization, you’re allowing that organization to rescue another dog
or cat for adoption at a public shelter, which, of course, saves the life of that
little guy plus the lives of others at that shelter by creating space so new pets
can be kept longer. As you can see, adoption is truly a continuous cycle of saving
lives and it’s the right thing to do!

You know what you’re getting (especially if you adopt an adult): There are a lot
of things to consider when you’re deciding what kind of personality your new
family member should have. When you adopt an adult dog or cat from a pet rescue,
humane society or animal shelter instead of buying a puppy or kitten at a dog
breeder or a pet store, what you see is what you get. Their personality is
already developed, and you’ll be able to spot the characteristics you’re looking
for much more easily than with a puppy or kitten. Pet rescue organizations, as
well as many animal shelter SPCAs and humane societies provide adoption counseling
and are able to assess the personality of each dog or cat for adoption and
carefully match you up with the right one for your lifestyle. With a puppy or
kitten, there is a lot more guesswork involved. Sure, you can train your puppy
or kitten on certain behaviors, but other traits (like activity level) seem to be
inherent in each individual. Want to adopt a dog or cat who will instantly fit
in with your family? That’s easy when you adopt an adult from a humane society
or SPCA, or from a rescue organization or animal shelter!

Pet adoption = an instant friend for life: Ask anybody who has adopted a pet,
and they’ll swear their bond with their rescued pal is as deep as they come.
When you open your heart and your home to a pet who needs help, they really
do show their appreciation for the rest of their life! Dogs or cats who have
been uprooted from their homes, or have had difficult beginnings are likely
to bond completely and deeply with their new human caretakers, whom they
regard as heroes. Pups and kitties who find themselves in the shelter or at
a rescue because of a death or other tragedy in their former human family
usually go through a mourning period. Once they are adopted, however, they
usually want nothing more than to please their new hero—YOU! No matter
what circumstances brought them to the rescue, most cats and dogs for adoption
are exceptionally affectionate and attentive, and make extremely loyal companions.

Training and Socialization: Many rescue organizations use foster homes, where
puppies and kittens for adoption are socialized with children and other dogs
and cats, and given basic obedience training before they go to their new homes.
Many dogs and cats in animal shelters and humane societies are already
housebroken, trained and ready to go! As an added bonus, many organizations
offer post-adoption workshops and training classes. When you adopt from these
animal shelters, you’ll have their continued support to help you through any
rough spots you face during your dog or and cat’s transition.
