Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

How Many Pets is Too Many??

Puppy Love

How many pets are too many pets???  How many kids are too many kids???  It is a very individual choice and number.

Animal Planet has announced a new series about people who own a lot of animals.  They are looking for pet families with 15 or more.

Some brand them as “animal hoarders.”, and some are, but some people have enough love in their heart and the where-with-all to properly take care of and lover a large group of pets or animals.

Where is that line between realizing that you have too many pets and not being able to take care of them and just being a huge animal person or family that can.

Trying to care for too many animals can sometimes be overwhelming. There can be financial burdens, health issues, family conflicts, even the run-ins with authorities. The new show wants to see how animal lovers – and their families – deal with these challenges and offer them some help.

In a time where there are so many families experiencing financial problems and so many pets and animals needing good homes and care… permanent, temporary or foster, the goal of all animal people should be to find solutions, give people willing to adopt and care for just one more pet help and put a stop to unreasonable pet restriction rules and laws and move to a no kill philosophy by working together.

Adopt Just One More Pet… There Is Always Room For Just One More

THIS IS BUDDY NOW!!!!!

Tracey’s Photos – Buddy, my sweet and handsome foster (slash that) adopted boy

I got Buddy about 4 weeks ago. Initially I was getting a black female pitty…and after paying for basic vetting, I heard nothing. Then one Saturday I get a call that a brindle will be delivered on Sunday. He was perfect when he went into vets’ in Georgia, she told me, but has nicks from an aggressive dog that they crated him with. So I thought nothing of it. Then it appeared to spread. Turns out it was Demodex.

I had him on a probiotic as well as awesome dog food and gentle essential oils. It didn’t help. I took him to vets’ and they gave me a strong anti-biotic (because of infection), a medicated shampoo and Demodex med. It got worse in just two days..LOOK AT HIM!!! I called several vets including my own, who said that it would indeed get much worse before getting better. The mites are freaking out and the infection is working it’s way out..thus the hugely swollen jowls and throat. I wonder would it have gotten to this had I known he had Demodex. He is in pain and I am now broke!! It CAN be very costly, especially if it becomes infected. So far it has cost $800., not including initial vettiing. I got it covered, but this is PRECISELY why pitty’s get returned if they have skin disease. It isn’t as easy to clear up as one might think.

I HAVE BEEN SLEEPING WITH HIM ON HIS DOG BED EVERY NIGHT!!! I AM WITH HIM ALL DAY LONG. HE IS GETTING MUCH LOVE AND PROPER CARE.

Good job Tracey!!  We would do it for our newborn baby and these fur babies are just as much our family once we commit!!

This is a great story!!  You are feathering your nest in Heaven!

As story goes…  “At the head of the Rainbow Bridge waits every animal that he/she encountered during his life time.” ~ some of us will need a lot of room at the bridge; sounds like you will!
