Sharing a Great Pet Adoption Pet Story!!

Our friends, Al and Andrea, in Corpus Christi moved there with 3 cats.  Over the past five years, one… Maggie, has passed on and gone to kitty heaven.  But during that time, they have  rescued a black pug that had some health issues, a Black Ker (maybe) out of a litter of abandoned puppies and an orphaned Chihuahua.  This was quite a feat for my friend, Andrea, who was basically afraid ‘or at least leery’ of dogs  before they adopted their first one, Buddy, at Al’s urging. Then ‘she’ adopted the next two, Beau and Princess.

Then about 10-days ago they ran across, almost over, a kitten.  The Calico kitty who looks like one of their older cats, Peaches, was running across the highway when they found her.   They did more than their due diligence to find the kitten’s owners but she is now one of the family and has been named Kit Kat… along with Peaches and Bart makes three.

3 kitties and 3 doggies… a nice family now that the kids are grown!

 

If you are an animal lover 4 to 6 pets, throw in a bird, fish or pocket pet, perhaps making even 7 or 8 are a fun and manageable number for a couple or a responsible family teaching their kids the values and joy of taking care of another living creature and overall responsibility (under supervision). If you aren’t, it probably seems like a nightmare… but then you probably wouldn’t be reading this blog.

 

Cats, kittens at reduced cost this week

 

Prospective cat owners can save money now through Sept. 27 at the Mission Viejo Animal Shelter.

DAWG, Dedicated Animal Welfare Group, the shelter’s non-profit that raises funds for animals’ medical procedures, is sponsoring cats and kittens at a reduced cost.

Adoption fees, which are normally $135, range from $35 to $85 through Sunday. Cats and kittens adopted will be vaccinated, spayed and neutered and have a microchip.

The shelter is at 28095 Hillcrest.

For more information, call 949-470-3045 or visit the City’s Web site at www.cityofmissionviejo.org.

 

Adjust the Pet Limitation and Restriction Laws

There is always room for Just One More Pet.  So if you have room in your home and room in your heart… Adopt Just One More!  If you live in an area that promotes unreasonable limitations on pets… fight the good fight and help change the rules and legislation…

Our shelter and rescues are over-flowing with pets of all types.  People are moving and just leaving them to die… or they go to a shelter and are Euthanised.  The Euthanization of healthy or pets with manageable conditions is a crime or irresponsibility!

California… one of the most liberal states in the union, as well as others, allows condo communities and senior communities, and even whole cities, to apply unreasonable limitations on the number of pets people may have and care for, after being one of the craziest areas that has promoted Puppy Mills to over breed.

Nobody promotes the hording of pets.  People with 10, 20 and more pets that they cannot take care of or clean up after is also a crime and often a mental condition.  But not allowing a senior to take her friends’ pets after their friend has died (in their senior community because they only allow one or two pets) is also a travesty and should be a crime!  And it happens every day!

Leisure World in Laguna Woods (primarily attached homes), one of the largest groups of Senior Citizen Housing Communities… Laguna Woods, Seal Beach, Camarillo, etc changed their rules a couple years back to restrict residents to “1” pet per household.

I know of two cases where someone’s friend has died there (Leisure World) and had asked that a surviving friend in the community take care of their pet if nobody else could take their beloved dog(s) in.  (Cats are easier to hide).  In one case the friend had to move out of Leisure World (from a home she owned) to honor her promise.  In the second case, the pet was euthanised after the living friend tried to no avail to find her deceased friend’s pet a home and the shelter she had to released him to “accidentally” euthanized the surviving dog.  It broke the woman’s heart  and ultimately caused her demise.  Come on people… there probably is nobody that has more time and more love to give than seniors.  Whatever happened to common sense??

If for no other reason than the present economy, all pet limit laws and regulations need to be adjusted upward.

Everyone is different and so if every situation.  If you have a neighbor with one pet who does not clean up after them of abuses them… you need to step up and step in.  If you have a neighbor with 8 pets who are wonderfully taken care of and don’t bother anyone… you need to happy for them and support there rights!

I want to state again that  JOMP is absolutely against hording!!  But on the flip side, I know someone who works as a vet tech, that over the years has adopted/rescued 21 animals that she has kept and probably another 100 that she has found homes for after temporarily fostering.  I was at her home to drop something off one day and was amazed.  The house was clean and comfortable, the pets were friendly, happy and well taken care of and you didn’t realize that there were as many as there were.  The house did not smell like pets in any way.  There was no more mess than at anyone’s house I know and no pet waste anywhere inside or in the yard… and the house had be ‘peterized’ in a lot of cleaver ways.

Is this an isolated pet/animal story of course?!?  Should it be allowed… absolutely!  We are not puppets or little cloned drones and this woman has the love and ability to save and take care of these animals.

We need to adjust for the high rates of homeless animals and support people’s freedoms!!  Today it is pets, tomorrow it is children!

Save the Life of Just One More…Animal!
