Shelter Pets Need Your Love (3 videos)

  • 1 of 3

Here are three quite different videos about pet adoption.

The first is the most emotional; the second talks about the opportunity for those of you who live in the northern United States to do something positive in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill; and the last looks at adoption of dogs you won’t find in shelters, greyhounds.

Pets Need Your Love

You can’t fail to be touched by this video, made by the Humane Society of the United States, with pictures of loving, hopeful animals, mostly in cages at a shelter, backed by the song I Need Love.

I already have two rescue cats, Kami and Tigger, that I love dearly, but this video made me wish I could care for more. How does it affect you?

Here’s a touching viewer comment on this video: “An animal is the best friend you will ever have. They will never lie to you, they will never do anything to break your heart. They will love you no matter if you are pretty or ugly, they will love you no matter if you are rich or poor, they will protect you with their life, they will never turn their back on you, they are sad when you are sad, they are happy when you are happy. This makes them the ultimate friend.”

On page 2 see the story of 100 dogs who lost their homes and families due to the Gulf Oil Spill and are being sent north to find new homes.

I adopted last October after the loss of my loved dog, pictured - due to my experience I was asked to consider taking a Rottweiler who kept getting over looked or had the wrong type of person after him, he was 13 months old very boisterous and weighing only 21kilo, he was a real challenge, destroyed furniture, £140 pair walking boots, constantly trying to escape the garden, the list of problems is endless- but now my patience / understanding has paid off, I could not wish for a more loyal loving dog he loves every one and all other animals, he sleeps with our Cat Abbey and now weighs 52kilo, I have had rescue dogs and cats for the last 40 + years, with patience and understanding they all turn out loyal and loving, NO ONE should give money to a breeder it is breeders who are contributing to the rescue s being over loaded and thousands of beautiful loving dogs being put to sleep, breeders are only in it for the money, no matter what they say, it is the money - if they loved dogs they would not breed they would do what all should do, RESCUE.
