I was recently browsing the website of our local SPCA shelter and found this ad. It nearly broke my heart and made me so happy all at the same time. It's horrible to see these animals sleeping on a cold, hard floor, but it's comforting to know that we can help!
Many people can't adopt an animal from a shelter because they don't have the time to care for it, they already have too many animals of their own, they don't have the money, etc. But even if you can't adopt you can still help. Buy a bed! Go here to make your purchase and help an animal be more comfortable in his/her stressful stay at a shelter. For as little as $50 you can make a big difference! You can also make a gift dedication with your donation. Sounds like a great Christmas gift if you ask me. Especially since so many of the things we buy for others are just fillers. Why not give something that truly is a gift? :)
And in honor of shelter dogs, the best kid of dogs there are if you ask me, here is a picture of our own shelter baby, Remington. He's sporting his new fleece-lined hoodie in preparation for the Oklahoma winters coming our way.
And here's another one of him looking for his squirrel friend. He would sit and stare for hours if I let him.
