The idea that some lives matter less, both animal and human, is the root that all is wrong with the world.
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
If you can't keep a pet forever...do not get one! They are not disposable. Hate those kind of people who are heartless and dump they're pets in kill shelters or dump them off in the street. It breaks my heart I wish I could save them all and I think the people that do that should be punished and never be allowed to have a pet again.
