Perhaps you have always wanted to have a pet but your current situation doesn’t allow you to. There is a solution. Most rescue organizations that save animals from death row at pounds are small and only run by a few dedicated volunteers. As a result, they are in desperate need of foster carers for the animals whilst they try to find them a loving home. You could be that carer, thereby allowing these organizations to continue to rescue more animals. But even more importantly, you could also plant the seed of enlightenment in that cat or dog or rabbit’s mind before he/she goes off to a new home.
So next time you or someone you know is looking for an animal companion, think of the animals about to die in the pound and save a life instead.
