Remember this powerful video of a sickly & dejected dog in a California shelter?
The video of Stanley inspired so many people to act. Working together they rescued him and eventually brought him to a foster family in British Columbia. He had surgery to fix his eyes, has been putting on weight, and is recovering from mange. And the best thing of all—Stanley won’t have to move again because he’s being adopted by his foster family! What a lucky boy.
Sadly, the first part of Stanley’s story is all too common. Shelters are filled with dogs & cats who need just one person to step up and change their life. I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times, but please consider adopting before you ever buy a cat or dog. Pure bred or mixed breed, juvenile or adult, spotted striped or solid, short hair or long, big or small, any possible color or temperament—whatever you’re looking for is out there, but most of them don’t have a lot of time. And don’t forget there are rescue groups for all sorts of animals: reptiles, ferrets, pocket pet, exotics, horses, goats. Please adopt!
