This was meant to be a quick warm up, but it turned into a comic that I’ve wanted to draw for a while. This is something that is extremely important to me, and I appreciate it if you read it.

A while ago, I heard a story that broke my heart. A family went a cat shelter to adopt. The daughter fell in love with a 3-legged cat. The father straight up said “absolutely not”. Because he was missing a leg. That cat was that close to having a family that loved him, but the missing leg held him back. Why?!

Many people have the initial instinct of “nope” when they see an imperfect animal. I get it, but less-adoptable does NOT mean less loveable. 9 out of 10 people will choose a kitten over an adult cat. And those 10% that would get an adult cat often overlook “different” animals.

All I want people to do is be open to the idea of having a “different” pet in their lives. Choose the pet that you fall in love with, but at least give all of them a fair shot at winning your heart.

Don’t dismiss them, they deserve a loving home just as much as any other cat. They still purr, they still love a warm lap, they still play, they still love you. Trust me, next time you are in the market for a new kitty, just go over to that one cat that’s missing an eye and see what he’s all about!

Cats adapt to physical and neurological disabilities, just like people do! Just because a cat is missing a limb or may walk funny, doesn’t mean they aren’t just as capable to give you the love and affection you want from a pet.  I’ve even seen blind cats who, while needing some extra accommodations while adjusting to a new home and lifestyle, have gone on to live happy, healthy, fun lives with owners and sibling pets who absolutely adore them. :-)

There was a cat that I would have adopted should I not be moving so soon who was partially blind, I asked if there was anything special I needed to do to care for her and they said just have a jingling anklet when I was home so she could find me easier and have different texture rugs in front of things like doors and her litter. It’s really not hard to care for a special needs kitty!

This comic makes me so happy. When my family went to adopt a cat everyone wanted a kitten but I told my parents I wanted an adult cat because no body ever wants them so as soon as I walked up I see the sweetest looking baby I’ve ever seen and she was the only one who played with the toy I had so I wanted her. She was three years old and as sweet as can be, a little stupid but very sweet and she’s still my best friend today and it’s been 7 years!

1,800 Hens Need Homes in Northern California! You Can Help!

vegansaurus:

imageAnimal Place is trying to save a whopping 1,800 hens! But they need homes ASAP! From Animal Place:

Animal Place is ready to spring into action and save 1,800 hens from an egg farm going out of business! We have until April 4th to find as many homes as possible. To do that we need YOUR help!

This rescue is different than others. Because of staff limitations, we can only rescue as many hens as we can place into pre-approved adoptive homes. We have three opportunities to save hens – Friday March 21st, Friday March 28th, and our last date Friday, April 4th. Over those weekends, we’ll host adoption events for approved adopters.

The hens are 8-12 mos-old red girls. Sassy, sweet, and inquisitive, they are great additions to anyone’s flock!

If you can adopt, that would be so awesome and you’d get a new chicken friend!!! If you can’t adopt, please share share share until all the hens have homes! 

Go here for more info and adoption form

This is Roo, Agility winner for the “All-American” category (aka mixed breeds). At 11 months, she was found in McLaren Park in San Francisco, brought to the SPCA, and given a new home and a great hobby. Fuck breeders, dog shows, and the AKC. Adopt, and teach your mutt all the tricks.

I found a wandering pit bull pup crying outside my door and spent about 2 hours asking around the neighborhood about her. She is sweet, chubby, and about… 4-6 months? she has a mixture of puppy and adult teeth a very puppy looking. She is about 25 pounds. She doesnt bark or bite, super duper friendly and gets along with dogs, as she has not bothered my two chihuahuas. 

I cant care for her. I have 2 dogs and a rabbit and no money to really feed her on top of them. I need her somewhere tonight as my complex is strict against pit bulls and would have her pounded and I’d be fee’d for it.

Humane society cant take her either :(

Anyone want to hold a baby pit as I post signs around until we can find her a home? It would only be temporary.

I live in Greenville, South Carolina- five minutes from downtown.

If someone can take her for a week or so that would be splendid.

Please, I am desperate. I have work tomorrow as well as my sister and we will be gone for 8 hours. She will probably bark and get me in a lot of trouble :<

Blind pooch and his guide dog brother get new home

  • Pit Bull-mix puppies, Jeffrey and Jermaine, found roaming Philadelphia last month
  • Jermaine acts as a guide dog for his blind brother Jeffrey
  • The eight-month-old pooches have an incredible bond and always maintain physical contact
  • The pups have a new home after being cared for at an animal shelter

When animal welfare workers found two Pit Bull pups roaming the streets of Philadelphia two months ago, they quickly realized there was no splitting them up.

Jermaine acts as a guide dog for his blind brother Jeffrey, gently nudging him in the right direction.

Now the eight-month-old orphans have a new home with a Springfield, Pennsylvania couple who say they’re overwhelmed by the brothers’ love.

The dogs became social media darlings last month when an adorable photo of them entwined while sleeping at a rescue shelter was shared around the world.

'When they walk, even on separate leashes, they are always bumping into each other to check that the other one is there,' new owner Victoria McKee told Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

'If Jermaine is off leash, he will run around and come back to check in with Jeffrey to make sure he's OK. If they're both off leash, they stay very close and Jermaine kind of herds Jeffrey around.

'It's remarkable how deep their bond really is.'

McKee and her husband Jonathan Hochman were selected to adopt the brothers from a pool of hopeful applicants, taking them home on November 25.

Although the gorgeous canines have recovered from the malnourishment, scrapes and upper respiratory ailments they gained while living on the streets, McKee said caring for a handicapped pup can be tough.

Jeffrey is blind in his left eye and sees only shadows with his right. But McKee said the pups are easy to get along with and love spending time with the family cat, Blabbus.

‘We didn’t just have to puppy proof, we had to blind puppy proof,’ McKee said.

'As we continue to introduce them to new spaces, Jermaine always falls back to the role of caregiver and seeing-eye dog.'

The pups were put up for adoption by Operation Ava, a no-kill animal shelter that seeks to find forever homes for abandoned animals.

Operation Ava CEO Claudia Gutierrez said the shelter received thousands of applications after the cute picture of the dogs embracing went viral. But she said McKee and Hochman seemed like the perfect fit.

'They were looking for a pair of dogs to adopt together. They don’t have any children and decided that their pets are their children. They’re a really close couple,' she told Mainline Media News. 

A Facebook page set up to keep people updated on Jermaine and Jeffrey’s adventures has more than 37,000 likes.

McKee said Jeffrey and Jermaine have taught her and her husband the beauty of living simply. She said the dogs still cuddle when they sleep.

'We've learned the power of simplicity, from paring things back to ensure their safety,' she said.

'You really don't need much to be comfortable. A roof overhead, some food, a warm blanket, and family is really all you need.'

adoptpets: This just melts my heart. These brothers love each other so much. And these pups such beautiful markings!
