Because ALL animals are precious...
Wishing all of my friends here on Care2 a beautiful day... every day!
Please forgive me when you don't hear from me (or as often) ~ I am so behind on the many messages I receive (daily) ~ it's difficult to 'catch up' when I have so much to do in my personal life. However, I am here daily, just only have time for what I must do each day to reach goals here. I appreciate your understanding and patience. I know many here are in the same place. I just wanted all of you to know how much I appreciate each and every one of you. You are all very dear to me. Love and HUGS!
May 10 - Mother's Day ~ make it a HAPPY one!
Positive blessings to all of the awesome Moms out there!

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat our animals.
Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it.
Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace."
~Albert Schweitzer~ The Philosophy of Civilization
