I’ve been told that shelter dogs are broken
I’ve been told that there are no purebred dogs in the shelters
I’ve been told that all pit bulls are killer dogs
I can tell you that shelter dogs are the best dogs ever!
One day, I clicked on a Facebook picture of a little puppy a friend had adopted, it took me to Facebook page called “Friends of Freddie”, the doors to a new world had been opened.
Living in Southern California, I couldn't imagine animals were dying the in the local shelters, how could that happen??? We are in a developed country, with educated people that should know better... Well the sad reality sunk in and before I knew I was helping by pledging on dogs, helping "recap" the threads (listing the name of pledgers and amounts) and soon I realized that I needed to ask for pledges from people too.
Fostering came naturally, I knew I had to help and I was determined to do it no matter what it took.
I have adopted dogs before just to save their lives, because I knew they deserved "a happy ending" and other rescues helped me place them.
I can't imagine closing that same door I opened when I clicked that first picture,
and I can't imagine not helping the voiceless...
I just hope that one day everyone will give it a try a see how amazing it is to save an animal's life!
