adoption| portland pets need you

i tilt my head to the left cuz I don't hear so good in one ear...but I know I could hear you say you loved me..

'oh you look nice...I go home with you, yes?"

My love of all things furry (yup even tarantulas) stretches back as far as I can remember.

I learned to walk by helping myself up on our Collie's tummy and then her back, as I grew. When I was 4 year old, I shared my backyard mud-pit + my bathtub with our duck Chipper (the bath was a one time gig. It did not work out well at ALL. Warm water + 1 duck = a whole lotta poo) Chipper was my T.V. watching buddy, he would sit on the arm of my panda rocking chair and we would watch Sesame Street and the Electric Co. together. Still, he was a duck. I kept a roll of toilet paper close at hand to clean up his 'messes'.

Animals have always been my best friends...I simply can not imagine what my life growing up would have been like without them. They gave me so much. I am the woman I am today because of the lessons I learned from them. Compassion, gentleness, kindness, to sit & listen quietly to a purr...

To live a life without a pet is simply unfathomable to me. I will always have at least 2 to 3 helpings of baby furrs running around my home.

I guess that's why pet adoption & rescue is so important to me. I know the joy and richness that a beloved pet can bring to your life... and to your childrens lives. I know that without our voice they have none.

Since I started working with Dogstar and Theresa, I have seen at least 30 cats and 6 or 7 pups find their forever families.

In fact EVERY animal I have posted on here and on my FB account has been adopted. So a big THANK YOU and WHOOO Yah!

With that, I bring you the latest dose of adoptable cuteness.

Please SHARE the link and leave a comment, it helps more than you know!!
