Yes, we all know how hard people have it these days.
All my kids have moved on to lives of their own, being in their 20's [thankfully, all gainfully employed] and I have pets who are now my babies.
I am asking people to please stop dumping pets off at my home. This is not adressed to anyone in particular, just people who are considering doing
Since May of this year, I have had 5, yes, 5 dogs, dumped off in my driveway. Is anyone else having this problem?
I understand that people are concerned about feeding their children first, when times are tough, but please, this is not fair!
My husband and I are having a rough time ourselves. He has MS, and because of our financial situation, he tried to return to work last year and got

As I am typing this, I am looking at a very small dog who showed up recently. He can't be more than 6lbs, and is an older dog, by his teeth.
I gave him a flea bath today, and put a monthly dose of flea medication on him.
He looks so happy right now, a warm place to sleep. I can't keep him, or any of them! 2 of the dogs that have shown up, are a doberman mix, and a
malamute. Huge dogs, but so, very sweet. They are great around our small dogs.
It's breaking my heart!
