I found out something VERY IMPORTANT from The Brat Pack. August 12th is Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet day! Here are some pets that qualify:
2) FIV+ cats
3) Pit Boos
4) Big Black Dogs
5) Special Needs Dogs
This is a very meaningful day for me and my ma ape. See, I was one of those dogs! (I have never been an FIV+ cat, though). I was listed as a senior, I had a terrible Petfinder pho-to, I had a host of health issues, I was black and fairly large. And my rescue thought I'd be a "lifer" there because no one had even inquired about me. And then I found my ape! And it turns out I am the PLATONIC FORM for PERFECT DOG. My sissy Ethel was hyper, black, high-strung, and had already been returned once. My brudder was big, black, and had some guarding/cage issues. And they turned out....not bad.
My ma ape can always tell the dogs that are not going to be there next week, the purebreds, the small dogs, the puppies. But then there are the ones who are there a long time. Pitties (and if she had a dollar for every time someone came out of the kennel and said "Whew--a lot of pit bulls, huh?" she could adopt 'em all), big dogs, the oldies. So she wants to promote this for the SPCA for some of her favorites that are still there---Regina, Mal & Nina, Chase, Lionel, Baby, Shyanne, CoaCoa with Arfritis...
There's a home for everybody! Now let's get out there and find them! Who knows--you could find a Wally in the Rough!
