Saving A Turtle In The Road

Helping another living creature is no small thing, it is saving a life!

The other day when I was coming home from work I noticed something in the road. I drove up slowly to get a look and saw that it was a little turtle inside it’s shell. I pulled over from this busy street to go take a look. I was trying to see if he was still alive, had a broken shell, or what the situation was. Then all of a sudden I saw some movement come from inside the shell and I realized it was his little head moving around. I think he was trying to get a peek at me! 🙂

Helping A Lost Pet

While driving , if you saw a dog or a cat wandering around alone, would you stop to help it? It is surprising how many people don’t.

A couple of my co-workers saw a puppy last night running in a very busy road. They said everyone was just driving by and no-one was even slowing down for the pup. Thank God for my co-worker’s compassion! They did stop and scooped him up and out of danger.

I‘ll never understand how anyone can see another living creature in danger, whether it be from traffic, starvation, other animals, weather, and even danger of other people, and not help it. It is one thing when it is wildlife running around (but still if they seem to be in danger, you should try to help), it is another thing if it is an animal such as a dog or cat. Obviously, these are domesticated animals and most likely someone’s lost pet.

Rocky, a senior dog, was frightened by fireworks and ran off into the woods. His family had been searching for him for days when some loggers found him. Continue reading

Keep An Eye On Your Pet

Are you signed up for “PawBoost Alerts” in your area or something similar? If you don’t know what that is, it is Facebook alerts for when a pet has gone missing. It is a wonderful way to alert communities and get people involved in finding and returning an animal to their family.

I recently saw an alert for a little dog that was missing in my area and the note from the pet parent said the dog had been taken from their backyard. One of the comments was something like “OMG, you can’t even leave your pet outside anymore!” The sad reality is that it has been happening for a long time, we are probably just hearing about it more now with all of the online social media.

It’s Memorial Day weekend. Many people are visiting graves, reflecting, missing, & weeping over the loss of a loved one.

Pets are also part of the family and there are many people who are mourning the loss of a beloved pet. I would like to pay tribute to them in a post. (This is not to take away from those who have lost their lives serving, this is just in addition to this day when we think of those who have passed)

Please send me a photo of a pet you have lost Continue reading

The tale of Pooh

After a day like today, where I saw posts about three people starving horses to death, a woman running a “rescue” organization for dogs only to find out she was flipping them, and a dog that looked extremely skinny and had barely any fur was tied up in a junkyard for years, reading a story like the one below gives me faith in humanity again.
