Last year, instead of buying an animal from a pet store, I rescued Lily (who could resist that face?). Had I fallen for the pet store “kitty in the window” trick, she could’ve ended up just another number—one out of the nearly 4 million dogs and cats who are euthanized every year because there just aren’t enough homes.
Pet stores are relying on you—the animal lovers—to keep them in business. They shamelessly shuffle in cute puppies and kittens endlessly while millions are literally dying for a home in shelters across the country. Of course, they don’t want you to know that behind the scenes, animals are warehoused, neglected, abused and even killed for the cruel pet trade that brings them big bucks every year.
Do your part to end animal homelessness and put the pet trade out of business—pledge never to buy an animal (and always adopt!) now.
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
