That’s a good look at some of the people doing the good work of rebuilding trust, faith and hope in humanity from abandon fur kids eyes. These are miracle workers who get little fanfare and publicity work long, hard hours for the love of their mission and wards. If we all could only have such rewarding jobs.
This story is very “A Christmas Carol” in its telling. It started with the Ghost of Christmas past showing you how poorly thought out decisions for a last minute Holiday gift can spin out of controls and traumatize the world of man and beast alike. It’s easy for the furry Bob Cratchet to be cast aside in a shelter as Scrooge lives on in his petless world, living with the memory every fading.
You were shown the world of Christmas Present, fur children in cages, hoping beyond hope that someone would come for them, that the dream of a forever home isn’t beyond their grasp, that the next shadowy figure that appeared in front of their dark and dank cage would be someone coming to rescue them. You met the hero’s of the story, the shelters and rescue workers, the volunteers and donation providers who give of themselves, everyday, to help build back the trust, confidence, social ability, health and love in these broken spirited forgotten fur children.
Perhaps we’re not telling a Scrooge-tale at all… for the Ghost of Christmas future is really up to society. With better planning, use of the shelter and rescue network instead of mills/breeders/pet stores, correct and timely spay and neuter routines, knowing your limitations as a potential pet owner and doing the right thing by seeing an animal as a living being and not a toy or a throw away part of your life, we could reduce the drop-offs and turn ins, eliminate the overcrowding and devastation of the six month holiday aftermath and assure we all have a Happier Holiday Season, “each and every one”.
If you have the resources, time, desire and/or dedication… please consider donating to one of the list organizations in our blog, or a pet charity of your choice. A little goes a long way in the world of an animal in need. Things like a bag of food, blankets, toys or a few hours a week as an exercise or companion volunteer could mean the difference to one of the forgotten ones. Isn’t the least you can do?
