If You Can’t Adopt…

There are hundreds of millions of homeless dogs in the world — some estimates say as many as six hundred million, and almost all of them wound up that way because of the failure of humans to do their part. Either people did not give strong Pack Leadership and gave up the dogs because of behavioral issues, or they didn’t provide proper protection, so the dogs ran away.

Jacey Birch: From Pet Lover To Animal Advocate

Since I was a tiny tyke growing up in Miami, I had a hobby of helping animals, whether it was saving a squirrel that fell out of a tree, or finding a feral cat a home off the streets, or bringing stray dogs home for my parents as presents. Even during visits to a family farm in Alabama, I proudly picked piglets out of a cotton field, rescuing them from the scorching sun while letting one of them call my grandma’s house his new home. I named him Arnold. There were many more names, many more animals, and a heart
