How near and dear is pet adoption to your heart? We are so determined to help get the word out about dogs in need, Fidose of Reality has formed Wigglebutt Warriors. For those unfamiliar, Wigglebutt Warriors we are crusading to save dogs’ lives, plain and simple. We also crusading to save dog teeth during Adopt a Pet Month: Read on…
People have asked me why I am spending my time with Wigglebutt Warriors. The answer is simple: Dogs need us. I know people who love dogs and want to help dogs. I have a big voice and a pretty darned big heart. I’ve devoted my life to a career in the pet industry, and I can’t sit idly by while dogs are dumped, abused, abandoned, and discarded like trash. I wish super hero dogs could just swoop down and rescue them all – taking them out of every shelter and unwanted home and into the loving forever homes they deserve. So while I am not a super hero, my dog is. Zoe is. Any dog that I ever share my life with is a super hero. Any dog you share your life with is a super hero, too. They are ALL Wigglebutt Warriors: No matter their age, breed, or size. They all pretty much save us from ourselves, right? They give so much life and ask for so little in return.
Well, I am not the only one with a big voice, as BlogPaws is celebrating Adopt a Pet Month. Helping a pet does not necessarily mean you have to adopt, but it really helps keep the numbers to a minimum of loving pets who are needlessly euthanized every day. You can cyber foster a pet, send $10 now and then to a shelter or rescue you love, or maybe volunteer in one of a variety of ways to help get homeless pets placed.
Help Freddy’s Teeth
What’s that all about, you ask? Freddy is a Cocker Spaniel who someone tied to a dog house 24/7 because he was no longer wanted – as part of a divorce. He cried for attention. A concerned neighbor has got the owner to agree to give him up. He is 8 years young. Until he finds his forever home, my pal Nancy Height helps out with his temporary fostering as do his regular foster parents. He is going in for a dental appointment because several of his teeth need to be pulled. Imagine if you never got your teeth brushed: Not a pleasant feeling with years of neglect, right? If you are interested in helping Freddy, my friend Nancy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is the total scoop on Freddy (note: No graphic photos, and he is alive, he was saved but needs a forever home).
Help Dogs – Infographic Style
Well, the folks at BlogPaws have done it again: They tell a story with words, yes, but this time they also have a very startling infographic for Adopt a Pet Month to check out. What struck us most is the sheer number of pets that are euthanized because there isn’t enough space for them at a shelter nor someone to take them in. We don’t want to depress our readers, but Fidose of Reality tells it like it is: Reality is our mantra and in our name, after all. Please do what you can and at the very least, can you share this post around? If one person is moved to help a pet in need, it is oh so worth it, yes? Many wags and thanks!
