Adopt a Pet for the Holiday

Sunday, December 3, 2023

A mother and her daughters are at the pound to adopt a dog. They are petting the dog at the animal shelter.

Local animal shelters are filled with cats and dogs abandoned for one reason or another. It really bothers me how many people got rid of their pets for financial reasons yet maintain an unlimited cellphone plan and mindlessly text all day! The fact is that many people will not adopt an older cat or dog for fear that it only has a few years to live. Remember cats can live as long as 20 years, so if you adopt a twelve year old cat and if it’s in good health, you can have eight good years with it. Giving a second chance to an abandoned older cat or dog is a very rewarding experience. Perhaps with the up coming holiday season, you can really help the animal shelters and adopt a needy animal. If you cannot adopt a pet due to allergies or financial reasons, animal shelters could use old blankets, food or anything else that you can donate. Spend your money on cat toys or a pet carrier instead of paying for minutes to mindlessly text all day!

Remember, your pets count!
