#purrs4peace Hello everyone, we’re participating in Purrs4Peace Week 50. This weeks Purrs4Peace has us purring for all the shelter animals.
“If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.” St. Francis of Assisi
“Ever occur to you why some of us can be this much concerned with animals suffering? Because government is not. Why not? Animals don’t vote.” Paul Harvey
This week we are purring for all the animals that are in shelters each year. In the United States alone the number is staggering, over 6 million each year. To make matters worse, sometimes shelters are not that at all. Sometimes death waits there. Shelter it is not if death awaits.
I have first hand experience because I was in the shelter and care of some very special humans for the first nine months of my life. Shelter I had, care I had, food I had. Each and every day there I see thousands and thousands of pleas fly by on Twitter, heart breaking posts on Facebook, and bloggers looking for help for shelter animals. It breaks my heart every single time. We are all able to help some and we are quite relieved when a critter gets the purrfect forever home. But there are millions more each and every year that are not as fortunate.
This week we all purr for each and every shelter animal the world over. May they each be safe in their search for their forever homes.
