Video Thursday

Abandoned Pet Rescue is a no kill shelter where I volunteer to walk dogs twice a week. They are hurting for donations right now, and by donations I don't mean more dogs.


  1. I could never do that; I would want to take them all home with me.
    I'm sure they love to see you come in and give them some love and attention.
    Good for you...

  2. I would need to take ear plugs if I visited that place. It does look a bit overcrowded. I hope they can find homes for more of them. Nice of you to give them a shout out.

  3. The cats made me sneeze! All your dog-walking is good for your "diet", how do you decide who gets walked? I think you need to put a 'sandwich board' on the dogs when you walk them..."ADOPT ME! I'm lovable!" and then just vary your route. Maybe someone will want them if they know they aren't yours!

  4. I just made a donation of $50. to Abandoned Pet Rescue of Fort Lauderdale.
    Who can top that?

  5. Oh my gooness, I think im gonna cry! The doggies all look very very happy compared to when you visit the shelter here.

    Hree they are mostly very large dogs that are very aggressive too. There are one or two very old dogs also, very very sad to go there.

    The kitties look like they are having a FAB time though! Bless em!

  6. The dogs here are basically happy because they get attention from the staff and the dog walkers. they aren't just thrown in a cage to await the day they are put to death. There are dogs that have been here for years, and recently they have adopted out a couple who were long time residents.

  7. It is always easy to say "it's ashame." or "That's so sad." when it comes to responding to the issue of abandoned companion animals.
    Alan, you are part of the solution because you volunteer to help socialized the animals at that shelter. You also adopted Chandler from them.

    Kudos to you. You are doing the right thing.

    Apathy on this issue is inexcusable. Everyone should be either donating a few dollars or donating time or supplies to non-profit animal shelters.

    If you are not, then you are part of the problem.

    Sorry to put it so bluntly.
