Last night I was in Pet Smart with my husband because we needed kitty litter liners.
A girl was in the shop with a beautiful chihuahua that was a rescue from the Sandy Hurricane. She said she was temporarily fostering the dog until it had a permanent home. Believe me, if I didn’t have two elderly cats, I would have taken that dog in a heartbeat. The dog was beautiful, lovable, well trained and well-behaved. The story was the dog was found without a collar or a microchip so it was impossible to find the owner.
My heart goes out to all the poor animals that lost their homes and families due to the storm. My two kitties don’t know how lucky they are to be safe with us.
There is no better time than now to adopt a pet or foster one if you can.
You can always call your local pet shelter or pet store. Currently the North Shore Animal League has over 300 animals that were displaced when their owners had to evacuate their homes during Hurricane Sandy.
Believe me, I’ve had all kinds of animals my whole life — dogs, cats, turtles, ferret, snake, turtles, hamsters, guinea pigs — and they bring you nothing but joy and happiness. By adopting a pet, you may be saving a little soul’s life, but the pet will give back to you tenfold — unconditional love throughout his/her lifespan!
