That’s the goal, Zero.
Zero adoptable and treatable pets being euthanized. Through medical treatment and behavioral rehabilitation all pets in permanent homes. Period.
We adopted our beloved Abner through our county dog pound as a spirit fund dog. He was a medical patient that required thousands of dollars worth of medical care to save his life and make him adoptable. The dog attack had left this little six pound poodle with multiple lacerations, an evicerated eye, many stitches and a broken foot. Today he is a happy and healthy nine pound cream colored poodle thanks to the generosity of people who cared to give to make him an adoptable boy.
With Abner’s inspiration The Better Half and I set a goal to make the San Diego Humane Society a charity one of our choice charities. We set a goal to be able to give significantly as time progressed. Every dollar helps, every single one. We have been giving what we could as we went along. Thanks to the many blessings in our life, today we stepped up to the plate. We gave our first of hopefully many significant donations and joined the Humane Leaders’ Circle (go ahead click the link embedded there and learn more).
Zero. Zero euthanized is the goal. No kill, no way, not ever. Spay, neuter, foster, adopt, give. Forever homes is the ultimate goal. Years from now I hope this entry is one I will look back on with tears of gratitude for all we will have done to help. One little step at a time, each little step in the right direction, will make a big difference. Someone’s donation made all the difference for Abner. Abner made all the difference for us. It’s time for us to pay it forward.
