The day is marked to "raise awareness about the extreme overpopulation affecting animal shelters" around the globe. Let's see what we, as pet owners who love are furrfriends dearly and treat them well (adopted or not!) can do on that day and throughout the rest of the year, to help homeless animals who are not yet so fortunate.
As an adopted dog myself, I take this issue particularly seriously. You know, I was dumped on the side of the road in front of our county's shelter by my previous owner, and while that pound is a good one, it is not a "no kill" shelter. So if it weren't for the luck of the draw, I might not be here typing this note to you today.
( Well, I am really cute and have an adorable, loving personality, so I probably would have been adopted, but that's beside the point :-) )
So together, let's think about what we can do this coming Saturday to help out our local shelters and rescue groups. Please send us your ideas and we'll have a special prize for one lucky winner.
(Parental Unit and I will pick one idea that we think is especially cool)!
P.S. Here's a reminder of how good I have it now... hey, it's Sunday, can't a guy lounge in bed for awhile?
