4. valuable advice
Edited on Fri Jun-02-06 07:08 PM by shireen
... except the part about donating money! (edited to add this sentence).

I spent many long hours and sleepless nights doing internet volunteer work for Katrina pets last fall. It was the most difficult thing I've ever done. I still cry for the precious pets and humans who died and suffered. I still get furious about the terrible things they were subjected to during that long ordeal.

The people who worked so hard in horrific conditions to help pets and their humans will always be my heroes.
