My animals have always been loved and cared for and spoiled, but my heart still breaks when I see what people are capable of doing to animals who cannot speak for themselves.
I have two favorite online charities I donate to, and I spread the word when I can. Vet Ranch and Hope for Paws. Wonderful folks who care for injured animals (Vet Ranch), and Hope for Paws whose volunteers crawl through sewers, over deserts, into rat-infested roach motels to rescue abandoned, discarded animals.
Good people doing good. Wouldn't that just about fix everything every where?
That would be the best birthday present for my boy:)
