The 12 Sights of Sadness
By Kimberly Locke - [email protected] 

On the first day of January, the shelter had to see:

Twelve Russells running
Eleven Pointers pointing
Ten Border Collies
Nine Maltese prancing
Eight Maine Coons mewing
Seven Poms a-brimming
Six Himalayans
Five Goldens
Four Australian 'pherds
Three drenched hounds
Two fertile Pugs
And a Rhode-Ridge and a Brittany

...and that's just one day!

Please, don't give animals as gifts--all too many are surrendered to shelters before they turn a year old.

An animal's life is a gift that should never be wrapped in ribbons and bows.
