I encourage you to contact your local shelter or rescue group. Right now. Or put it on a list of things to do. Most groups that handle unwanted pets are in dire need of some form of your stewardship, be it with money or time or simple care. Share this photo with a friend. Maybe that’s all you can do right now. But maybe, too, if you look at your dayplantime-thingie, you actually have a spare twenty minutes at 2:22. Take your cousin to the shelter. Walk a dog or brush a cat in a cage. Ask the shelter or rescue group what it is they need. Chances are good they’ll hand you a list and a “thank you.”
(Note to shelters and rescue groups. If you have a need or news or tips or something you’d like to share, please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com.)
Update: I intended to link the shelter where you can find Andrea Bocelli, but apparently forgot. I’m human, not dog, so I forget some things. Here’s the shelter: barcshelter.org.
