Today I want to share something with you that I am passionate about. This is Roger my little affenpinscher. A few years ago a friends dog went missing in Mexico. We searched for the dog for a month and by utilizing my social media we were able to find him. During the time of us searching for my friends dog I saw the depths of the strays in Mexico. Dogs literally being ran over on the street. Shelters with little money caring for animals that had gunshot wound’s and were abused.
Upon my return I found an Instagram page called Dog Meets Family. I had promised myself I would be rescuing another dog. I wanted to somehow honor all the stray animals in the world by saving one. One of my passions is using my social media to help animals in need. A lot of the work I do on the down low because some people just can’t stand to look at the truth of how horrible the situation is for animals both inside and outside of our country. I’ve had people come down on me for sharing videos of what occurs in factory farms. But it’s the truth! Animal suffering is not limited just to dogs and cats. Factory farm animals are by far treated the worst.
Below, I have listed three of my favorite animal rescue organizations along with a picture of sweet Roger. I know Rodger is one of my spirit animals. This is him getting his chest rubbed this morning. It bewilders me to think a couple dropped him off to be Euthanized because he had a massive growth on his neck.
Whenever I see someone purchasing from a breeder I have to stop and ask them why? There are so many animals that need homes. Would you do this to a child who needed a home? Would you do this to an elderly person who was ill? Would you want someone to disregard you because you had a tumor hanging from your neck?
Far too often in life we are looking and waiting for someone to mess up. Instead of focusing on the change we can make. It is your choice whether you donate to one of the three places below. They are in my opinion extremely reputable. Feel free to research them online.
I love you, please love yourself Andrea
