hi dear new members!
4 years ago

 and  welcome to you all!   

Maria is the best hostess ever ! thank you all for supporting rescues who work so hard and do so much for the animals they save !

we all share the love of animals and want to promote the ethical treatment of all animals, because they are pure in heart and truly God's creatures, here to love and give love and show us what love is. As i love and play with my new adopted kitten, he shows me all the innocence and pure love and joy and playfulness that kittens have. he is such good medicine for me after having lost our beloved siamese cat in december. 

wishing you all a beautiful day today and every day. remember a smile  is the most beautiful thing you can wear and a beautiful present to give to anyone! Love and peace to you all!!

hello from PHx
4 years ago

I have adopted 2-cats into my APt. They just needed someone to show-them 2-legged do care.I've spent alot of money feeding strays,miracles do happen,I saved a dying kitten barely alive,I did a small ceremony for him,he disappeared and when I saw him again he was healthy.His life force was healed.

4 years ago

wow, thanks, barko! tons of new members : ))) welcome to all of you - Natalie, Sophia, Sinikka, Chris, Megan, Yanula, Margaretha, and Ivonne. And even if i missed you, we welcome you. Maria is a super hostess. This group was founded by me to tell about my friends' rescue sanctuary in Oklahoma. People who work so hard to have a rescue and keep it going caring for animals and trying to place all placeable ones are to be admired so much for caring for animals that would otherwise have no options... 

 

support your local rescue. and always adopt from rescues and not from the horrible puppy mills. i will post an article my friend wrote about their rescue and sanctuary. 

 

peace and love and welcome... feel free to post about yourselves and your animal companions.

hi, and welcome  to all the new members i haven't welcomed!

and thank you, maria , as always for doing such a great job as our hostess!

welcome, Kristie! sorry i missed you earlier when i welcomed Jovana. And welcome to Nadia, Susan, Ekeim and Carole! 

Thank you for joining our group supporting my friend's rescue sanctuary. 

 

after our siamese died dec 28, we decided at the end of january to adopt a rescue kitten who is 6 months old. he is doing great. but our older cat munchie is not happy about the new kitten. so we are working on getting her to accept him. 

i hope everyone is staying warm and is well. i am counting the weeks til spring  here in Ohio.  i am not a fan of cold and snow.

 

love to all,

Absolutely, Paul Richard! Dogs are people too, in a huge way. i was telling Maria how i felt like our animal friends are so much like our children and have such different personalities from each other. After our cat died last month, our remaining cat has been getting tons of attention and love and is doing well... and helping us so much in our mourning and grieving process. they are so different from each other. bless them all for the love they give us! 

and WELCOME JOVANA!     

 

Everyone have a very blessed day, thankful for all of you, and for our babies we love so much!!! and to the people who rescue animals and care for them and try to find them good homes!!!!!

 

peace and love,

shining star

hello and welcome!

thank you, shirley, for inviting friends to be here! welcome, anne, cher, janet and maria o!!!  so glad to see you here. again, i invite all of you to post photos of your animal companions to share with us, and post anything you would like especially personal sharings. 

 

chris and dana down in oklahoma, my friends that have the rescue are trying to get things ready for the cooler weather after more than 5 weeks of steady rain due to the gulf weather. when you don't have much in the way of indoor shelters and kennels, there's a lot to do to protect the animals from the elements. 

 

my back is trying to go out on me, so won't be on the computer much today. taking the day off from work, and wish i could spend the time on the website. i have so much to do, but little by little... 

 

again check out Lee's duck site. she and her members have some gorgeous photos there! if any of you have groups you host or are especially fond of, feel free to share what they are and promote them here. 

 

thanks for sharing positive things and friendship here!

 

much love to all of you,

peace,

yes, there should! and more people should spay/neuter any animal that is going outside to roam.

5 years ago

I hope that our government eventually will listen to us. There are so many people (Greeks and foreighners) who try their best by volunteering, protesting, sending mails, making petitions to help stray animals. There should be a proper funding for those shelters here and everywhere.   

 

shelters and rescues
5 years ago

yes, my friend's rescue never kills an animal. they will keep old or handicapped or animals not likely to be adopted and care for them their entire life. there are many shelters here who do kill animals because they have no more room for more. it is terrible situation. seems like often if it is called a shelter, they kill over here. and usually if called a rescue they don't kill? 

 

5 years ago

Thank you ShiningStar and again hi to everyone!

I know it can be difficult for many shelters to take care of so many animals but when you look at those grateful eyes you know you did all right...I cannot understand why there are shelters that kill animals. What kind of shelters they are? Here in Greece we have many stray animals. Fortunately, there are shelters with decent people who try to make a difference. They care for the animals providing shelter, food, medcal treatment, spay/neuter programmes and public awaireness. They do not kill any animal and if they cannot find any home to adopt them, they keep the animals until the end.
Unfortunately, the government does little for this big problem and the shelters lack of money.
Thanks to everyone who cares!
