You have a pet, don't you?
An animal whom you speak your thoughts to,
Who's a member of your family?
A dog, kitten, or rabbit who cuddles up to you happily?

Not all pets are welcomed into families with open arms -
And entirely out of harm's
Some pets are abandoned on the side of the freeway.
Can you imagine what it feels like to be stranded?

To be cold, hungry, without any mercy?
To feel as if you're not worthy?
And when you think it can't get any worse, and you're at your wit's end;
A shelter comes along
and rescues you.
You may find it too good to be true.

Everyday, animals are saved from the streets.
Given, this is no small feet
Of accomplishment.
However, these pets can not find true happiness
Until they are adopted into a loving home.

Because even though they're temporarily saved,
Someone can't be there every moment to raise
Them. With so many animals, it's difficult to spend a lot of time
With each one.

Not every animal has an easy time being adopted
However, you can make sure they never have to face danger
Why not expand your family by one furry addition?

Take, for example, Boo.
Is a male kitten with a soft white coat.
Now I don't mean to gloat,
but Boo is just about as adorable as kittens get.
He lives with a foster family right now, but I bet
He'd love to have a family of his own.
If you want to see how cute he is for yourself and bring him into your family, you can reach his organizaiton over the phone.

Every shelter animal deserves the chance to be loved.
I'm sure that if you take a moment to meet them,
You'll realize what a gem
They are.
After all, who doesn't love a cute face and an animal covered in fuzzy fur?
