save the animals!

Let me start this off by saying that...

#1. I am an animal wacko
#2. I will bring my car to a stop if I see a loose dog roaming the streets to find its home
#3. I don't put up with people who abuse or mistreat animals

I am an animal nut that is for sure but I am proud of it. I'm am no where near a vegetarian but I do have a huge place in my heart for furry things. Today I was watching Oprah and what I saw disgusted me and brought me to tears. (I'm not a big fan of Oprah, but I do love some of the things she does.) It was on puppy mills and the horrible abuse that goes on there to the momma dogs. They then showed the pound and all of the animals there and explained that the dogs/cats have 5 days to find an owner before they are put down. It made me nuts watching it, there were soo many precious puppy dogs in there and I watched them be put to sleep!! The sweetest dogs who walked in the room wagging their tail and seemed like awesome family dogs were killed.

Oprah featured this awesome foundation that's in LA called the "Lange Foundation". It is a non-killing shelter for animals who are either found on the street or are rescued from the pound. Every time someone "sponsors" a pet, the foundation goes down to the pound to rescue an animal that is about to be put down in the sponsors name. It's amazing. I so wish I could be involved somehow. My dream as a little girl always was to open up an animal rescue one day. I went online and sponsored an animal, they are going to be sending a picture to me of the sweet one that I saved. I can't wait!!!

If it is on your heart to save a dog or cat from the pound and you are like me and can't have one more animal in your house then PLEASE go to...... www.langefoundation.com
They are awesome people with great hearts and their foundation runs off of donations alone.

Thanks :)
