We have added a rescue puppy to the menagerie
Edited on Wed Mar-04-09 11:19 AM by JCMach1
Ack!

We now have 2 Red Slider turtles...
2 Cats
1 Rescued dove with broken wing
1 puppy abandoned and rescued in public park

All of the animals were rescue animals :(

Did I mention we feed stray cats too? I get really angry... even professors abandon their pets when they leave here, so we constantly have strays... They are hungry and in need of attention... so we feed them and give them a little love...

Pics soon

She is blonde mutt with blue eyes... prob a mix of local dog and something like golden retreiver...

1. People who abandon their pets are an enigma to me.
I actually dislike them very much, and cannot fathom how they can do it. First-rate of you to care for the animals.

15. I agree. Anyone who abandons a pet is a piece of shit, IMHO.
I don't understand how people could treat an animal like that.

In my opinion, pets are members of the family...

2. That is great!
Maybe with those blue eyes she has a little bit of Australian shepherd. I have a golden retriever/Australian shepherd mix. One cute dog.

4. Looking forward to the pics!
I just love it when people post pics of their fur families. In your case, shelled and feathered babies too.

6. Will definitely post pics... there is a huge problem in the UAE with pets these days
due to the economic upheaval... too many people are being layed off and leaving... Too many leave their pets behind.

5. Glad you rescued the little fella ...
S/he got lucky you were around!

We do that too - moved here with 2 cats, adopted 5 more (strays). Found homes for many more.

8. A gold star for your kind heart
I don't know how people can just abandon animals like they do. It happens ALL the damn time and it really pisses me off. I have 5 cats and a dog. All foundlings.
