Happy Responsible Pet Owners Month!
3 Cheers for all Responsible Pet Owners! This month celebrates all of us who are responsible pet owners and all who take the care of animals seriously. During the month of February we celebrate our pets with love and kindness, not just for this month but for our whole lives. They love us unconditionally.
During this month we are encouraged to pass on to others the importance of being a responsible pet owner and join in teaching the public how to be responsible for the sake of our pets well being. We all know that pets have a heart too. They hurt and cry just like we do. So during the month of February, help the world celebrate Responsible Pet Owners Month. Help support a happy life for all pets by spreading the word on how to be a responsible pet owner.

when they are left behind. The song says it all (Sad thoughts of an animal)
What hurts the most, is being so close....
What hurts the most, is being left behind....
I have so much to say....
It hurts to watch you walk away....
How could you do this to me....
Never knowing, what could of been....
I'm all alone now....
Loving you is all I was trying to do.
Before walking away... please stop to think about how they feel.
Animal protection advocates call attention to:
"Animal protection advocates call attention to pet overpopulation in the United States." "According to the Humane Society of the United States, 3-4 million dogs and cats are euthanized each year in the country and many more are confined to cages in shelters." "This situation is created by nonneutered animals (spayed/castrated) reproducing and people intentionally breeding animals. A particularly problematic combination of economic hardship combined with a love of animals contributes to this problem in parts of the rural United States." "In an average year, a fertile cat can produce three litters of kittens, with up to 4 to 6 kittens in each litter." "Based on these numbers, one female cat and her offspring could produce up to 420,000 cats over a seven year period if not spayed or castrated." "There are also major overpopulation problems with other pet species, such as birds and rabbits." "Local humane societies, SPCAs, and other animal protection organizations urge people to neuter their pets and to adopt animals from animal shelters instead of purchasing them from breeders or pet stores." Moving with pets takes time and planning. Moving with a cat or a dog is not impossible, but many people still choose to give their animals up to animal shelters instead of taking them to a new home." "This is another big reason for pet overpopulation." wikipedia encyclopedia / documentation_license
