Blind, Lovable, Adoptable Dog Andrea Bocelli

This photo posted here by author and regular Itchmo contributor Terry Bain (that’s me) from the Adoptable Pets photo pool, for which I am the administrator and “Alpha” at flickr.com.

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.”

Blessings.

(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 bainbooks@gmail.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.

    What a beautiful girl! I hope that her days in the shelter are few and that she has a long and lovely life with someone who will spoil her rotten. If I wasn’t dealing with 5 cats (some with serious medical issues) I would look into adopting her.

    Wow. The timing of your post is coincidental! I just attended a volunteer orientation with the local no-kill cat santuary called Happy Tails. I can definitely give up a few hours a week to help clean up and feed the homeless cats. This group in Sacramento, CA also helps with several feral cat colonies. People dump their domestic cats at these parks, so the volunteers have to pick up the domestics along with trapping the ferals to have them spayed and neutered. I guess sometimes its hard to tell the difference between ferals and freaked out domestics. I’m looking forward to helping out. I think it will be very rewarding.

    I can’t currently adopt any more animals as I have two and that’s enough for me right now..but one of my rescues is a blind dog..and she’s great. Marley manages so well and learned the layout of my house in no time flat. There is a Yahoo Group I believe called Blind Dogs. It helped me out when I first took Marley in.
