Too many of these animals are dying because many more people are buying from breeders because they think they would find their 'perfect pet' there instead of in shelters. These shelter animals may have had...

"We want to wait until after the Holidays Tom and then we will be ready to go." Well, the Holidays are over, and I am so ready to go. I am s...

If I have one more person tell me that I can't do something, I shouldn't do something, or the sky is falling, again, I am going to choke.

OK, OK, so I am DEFINITELY aging myself here!  But, I was born in 1973 and can't believe how things have changed, can you?  Do you remember these games of the 1970s?   Look at that Atari console--wholly hugeness!  And, that football game, was the coolest!
