I stumbled on this video this past weekend (I don’t even know who to give a H/T too!) and am posting it as it struck a chord with me:
The chord? All of our dogs have been shelter or rescue dogs:
- Gypsy the rescue Greyhound
- Tasha the Golden Retriever from the Laconia Animal shelter
- Ivan the Shephard / South Rhodesian Ridgeback mix from the Laconia Animal shelter (now starting in on Year 16!)
- Tyson the American Eskimo, a rescue from a failed relationship
- Kiah the Manchester Terrier from the Laconia Animal shelter
- Mieka the Lab mix from the Laconia Animal shelter
If what Humane Watch is true, it is a similar case to politics – we think that supporting individual politicians is better than just giving to a political Party (Republican or Democrat). If you give to a group, STUDY and research what they are about AND verify their results (here in Conservative NH politics, I can endorse the Granite State Patriot Liberty PAC (GSPLPAC) as well as the Republican Liberty Caucus of NH (RLCNH).
But remember, animals are neither R or D, Conservative, Libertarian, Democrat, or Socialist (or other). Support your local shelter!
