Strut your mutt charity walk

So on this new adventure that I have embarked I was inspired to take a more active role in helping homeless animals.  I was told that every small step makes a difference.  So we have teamed up with the Strut your Mutt charity walk, which will be held September 26 in NYC so far my husband and I have formed a "dog pack", a team, and will take part in the walk sooo if you want to show your support visit the  link below and join the pack. 100% of the donations will go to help a homeless animal, you can join our pack or you can create your own.

    Either way it is important to remember that the worst we can do is to do nothing at all.   We have all at some point felt that feeling of hopelessness that feeling that there is no real way of helping put an end to the neglect and abuse that animals are put through.  But we don't need to solve this problem on a huge scale to make a difference we can't save the world but to those we do help we have saved their world. 

     Don't let your sense of hopelessness stop you from taking a step in the right direction.  Every year thousands of homeless animals are euthanized because they don't have a forever home, a home of their own where they are safe loved and protected.  Thousands more live their lives in small cold cages, even the nicest of shelters at the end of the day must turn off their lights and leave behind an innocent animal alone in its cage staring out. 

       Donate, volunteer, spread the word every little bit makes a difference.  If you already have a furry companion remember the importance of spaying and neutering.  Fight the myths and do the responsible thing.  Your pet does not "need to have puppies" to feel fulfilled they will not feel betrayed as if you took something away from them. They will not become obese after the procedure or because of the procedure.  They will continue to be your beloved companion.  Help stop the epidemic which is created when we bring unwanted litters into the world.  There are thousands of thousands of wonderful animals awaiting a forever home. Young, older, pure bred, proud mutts open your heart to them and save a life, enrich your life.

I await the birth of my puppy anxiously, yet I am fully aware that there is an animal in need of a home in a shelter that could use my help.  For as long as I can I will be willing to foster and one day when space permits, bring into my life an adopted furry friend.  
I will always consider Adoption the best option.  This puppy made its way into my life and my heart when i needed it most and I will continue to do my best to deserve the unconditional love of my dogs. 

    So please take a look at the site and go on take the brave step of saying abuse ends with me today I will take a step to help another being.  There is a direct scientific connection between animal abuse and abuse of a human being.  When we make it clear that we will not stand for the neglect and abuse of animals we are also making it clear that those humans whos' voices have been silenced by abuse are not alone or forgotten. Lets work together for a better world for all living beings! The change begins with you, with me, with our decisions and actions.
