Huri wrote a nice note to remind me how GREAT IT IS TO HAVE FRIENDS!
Double Kiss


And to continue with the subject on adopting rescued pets, I'll copy some of the info from an earlier blog.

Please check out DaAntiCyclone's great blog for pet owners' hurricane preparedness.

UNFORTUNATELY THE HURRICANE SEASON WILL BE BACK, AND THERE ARE STILL PETS FROM EARLIER SEASONS WAITING TO FIND A HOME, AND MANY OTHERS FILL THE SHELTERS ALL YEAR LONG.

Abandoned and abused animals - like all pets - need love, patience, and good amount of training to adjust to a new life in a family. Most people prefer to get young pets, but some look for adult ones, and there are advantages and disadvantages to both. And both options are good when an animal finds a loving home! I've had many dogs, from expensive pure breed show dogs to mixed breed companions, and I have loved them all the same. But I doubt we'll ever get a pet that is not from a rescue shelter.
If we can't have pets at home, we can volunteer to walk them, wash them, or just give them love and companionship in one of the hundreds of rescue shelters around the country. And if we have room in our hearts and homes, whether we already have a pet or not, let's consider this:
There are about 200.000 animals looking for a home right now.

cgableshurrycanegal is tied to several adopting and rescue organisations.

WE CAN HELP SAVE THE LIFE OF AN ANIMAL

Many pets love to have a companion to play with, and - in my experience - having two pets is easier that having one, specially when the time comes for one of them to leave this world.


Here are some useful links for pet adoption info, Ill add more if you post them:

Here is one more link for those of you that have large animals. It is for the Florida SART team. They are by all accounts the best team in the country for large animal/agriculture disaster issues. Lot's of good info here too.

Anyone who wants to can become a member wither the SART team or the DART, Disaster Animal Response Team (Humane Society of the United States). Either organization provides training. You can also contact your local shelter to volunteer in the event of a disaster and help them evacuate the animals there. It takes a lot of hands to move hundreds of animals!

Many of the shelters in MS and LA did not have an evacuation plan or were too late by the time they decided they needed to evacuate and hundreds of animals died. It was horrible. I fostered three small dogs that we found in a shelter in MS. They were in the top row of cages and had 4 inches left to breath above the water line from the storm surge. I don't need to tell you what happened to the rest. Good news is, they all now have great homes on high and dry ground.

ENJOY YOUR FRIENDS, WHETHER TWO OR FOUR LEGGED, AND HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!

Hi Finn,

Got this info at work just now and thought it may be a good idea to post in some of the blogs that folks in Broward and Palm Beach County may read. HOpe it is OK to post it here, If you think it is too long, it is ok to delete it. I put it in my blog and Cyclone's.

Finn,

Pretty soon I will call or outside mail you to set up a date and time that I can come to Lake Worth. It is not that far and I do have Brother IN and Sister In Law that live up there so we do travel there often.

I would hope we could meet somewhere for lunch. It would be great if a few others could join... I just work on Saturday and cannot take off on a Saturday then I babysit on Tue and Wed when I am off work...The only real day I have is Sun or Mon (or later on a Tuesday afternoon)...
Just a thought!

Thank you so much for the kind words. We are one big family that will be looking after each other in the days to come. Hopefully we will not have any bad storms this year, but the east coast seems to be a target area. Liisa perhaps you can help us prepare the needs of our pets during this bad time. Make it a terrific Thursday!

Hello {{{{{W&ECF, and those in between}}}}}!

My Tibetan Lama friend taught me this prayer (called 'Metta') and I'm praying it for each and everyone during this hurricane season:
MAY YOU BE HAPPY,
MAY YOU BE WELL,
MAY YOU BE FREE
FROM SUFFERING
AND DANGER!
