Welcome Pet Lovers!
We often hear of sad stories on the news or via the internet, but many stories go unheard of. In this issue, I’d like to share a couple touching stories about local dogs needing our help. Alice is a beautiful dog that will be available to adopt by a wonderful Rescue group, Premier Animal Rescue in Vacaville, CA. Our featured cover dog, Mondo is available to adopt, Please contact: CARESforanimals.org
Don’t forget to read Barb Ahern’s article “Like Father-Like Fido’’…As she states, dogs and humans share a 94% correlation of genetic characteristics. This article demonstrates how humans and dogs are much alike and it may be one reason why we tend to treat our dogs like family.
A few generations ago cats and dogs were not treasured and treated like the family members they are now. Now a-days families give them gifts for Christmas and special treats for their birthdays. For some, pets become their pseudo-children, especially if they don’t have any kids of their own. Then, when it’s time to say good-bye we struggle and hurt more than we ever imagined.
I would like to dedicate this issue to my mom who recently had to say good-bye to her Weimaraner, Sadie, whom I rescued 14 months ago; as well, to all of those that have lost a pet. Sadie was abandoned in my neighborhood and wandered the streets for a couple days before we realized that she was homeless. Mom took Sadie in and she became part of the family. Like most rescues, we will never know her true story, but she was one of the sweetest, smartest souls we’ve ever met. She passed away from Kidney Failure. She was much loved and will be forever missed. Rest In Peace Sadie
There are many Animal Events to celebrate this Fall but we’d like to recognize the following:
- September 11th: National Pet Memorial Day
- October 16th: National Feral Cat Day
- October (ALL MONTH): Adopt A Shelter Dog Month
- November (ALL MONTH): Adopt a Senior Pet Month
To all the seniors and shelter dogs, may you find a forever home and be treated like family.
