The Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

Benefits of Spaying and Neutering

Did you know that 90 percent of pets that enter US shelters are not “fixed”? Or that you can reduce your dog’s chance of breast cancer by having her spayed before her first heat? Or that neutering your pet may result in a loving, more affectionate companion for you? The truth is, the world is already over-populated with […]

I really want both my blog and Facebook page to be positive and uplifting. I try to keep it professional, informative, and helpful. I really want my readers to visit both sites, knowing they’ll find something that will make them smile and turn a bad day into a better one.   But sadly, life’s just not […]

free to good home

We’ve all seen them. The flyers hanging on utility poles. The sign on a cardboard box in front of the grocery store. The Craigslist ads. Maybe you’ve even used one of these methods to re-home a pet you no longer wanted or could care for. The sad truth is that while not everyone who’s interested in […]

“It’s the toughest job you’ll ever love.” Isn’t this the slogan for a branch of the US Military? I have no doubt that is an incredibly difficult job, and I’m so thankful for our Military. But I have to admit, being a dog rescuer ranks right up there with tough jobs. It’s no walk in […]

The Reality of Pit Bull Breeding

Please take 5 minutes to watch this video. To look at these faces. To remember that 6,000 Pit Bulls die every single day in this country because there aren’t enough homes for them. Sure, puppies are cute. There’s nothing better than sweet puppy breath. But puppies become dogs. And dogs often end up discarded because […]

Pit Bulls are the number one most euthanized dog in the United States today. There aren’t enough homes for all of the ones already in existence. So many are sitting in shelters right now and need our help to find homes before time runs out and they’re put to death. Please don’t add to this […]
