An Attitude of Gratitude ~ Best Friends Animal Society

Here is Cinnamon our cocker spaniel/poodle mix. She is 12 yrs old now.

 

Cinnamon

 

This gentle loving fur-person was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Sacramento, CA eight years ago. She loves everyone and she is loved by everyone who meets her. It is impossible to count the number of smiles that she has brought to the faces of adults and children that see her and meet her. She rides shotgun in my truck, stands on the seat, crouches over the window rail, and places her head between the door/window frame and the passenger side mirror. When she runs to greet someone all you can see is her ears, fu manchu, paws, and tail flying in all directions at once. Cinnamon has brought a heart full of joy to our lives and we give our thanks and gratitude to members and affiliates of the Best Friends Animal Society.

Members of our Curry County Animal shelter, Gerda Ramer and Catherine Powers, just returned from a conference in Utah sponsored by Best Friends Utah on ‘No More Homeless Pets.’

They reported that the founder of Best Friends, Gregory Castle, gave a speech during the closing ceremony in which he expressed his belief that in the year 2014 we will be a no kill nation.

Thanks to the dedication and tireless efforts of members of the Best Friends Animal Society, http://www.bestfriends.org/,  and other like-minded groups and individuals the number of dogs and cats killed at shelters across the United States has been reduced from 25 million in 1975 to 2.5 million in 2010.

In just a few short years with our support, their hard work, and the success of spay and neuter as well as their placement programs dogs and cats will be safe, warm, and happy in the shelters and ultimately in their forever homes.

Please help them to help the homeless dogs and cats by volunteering and/or donating at the local non-profit(s) that operate spay and neuter programs and the animal shelter(s).

It certainly would. Our girl was traumatized by her experience at a 'high kill' shelter. It took approximately 6 months of loving and nuturing her before she was able to really trust us. By her nature she is very friendly and outgoing and it was a joy to be there when she was able to once again be herself. Thanks for stopping by and have a happy holiday.
