Teach Your Children Well
Today is the last day for the Be the Change for Pets challenge to blog about a less-adoptable pet. I decided to feature Snuggles, a very pretty, yet skittish girl from a shelter near my house.
This is a great lesson for parents and other adults to teach respect for all living creatures from day one. Can you imagine how scared Snuggles must have been? How she might have hid, afraid for her safety? What kind of life is that? Let's educate our children (and adults) that pets are like us -- they want love, affection, gentle snuggles, and kind words.
So please, don't let a pet's unfortunate background deter you from adopting him/her. Love is so healing and you could be the one to change a life. You CAN be the change. Snuggles is now available through Rescued Tails Animal Sanctuary, where most of the foster homes are in Minnesota. You can read more about her here.
