Please, please, please do not breed or buy while shelter pets die. [View all]

I dropped off food and blankets at my county shelter this morning and it was overflowing with dogs and cats. It is a kill shelter and many beautiful animals won't be there when I stop next week.

My town will only license 3 dogs to a household or I would have filled my car with them. I called Yorkie rescue about two little frightened recent arrivals and they will be picked up tomorrow.

I encourage you to remember the pets in your local shelter. This time of year they need your old clean towels, blankets and sheets as well as treats. You can call ahead and see what they need the most. My shelter needed clean newspapers last year and one of my friends made arrangements to pick up the recycle from the nearby schools.

If you can make the walk through, check if you see any pure breeds or mixes that look like one breed or another. Take down their information and get in touch with their breed rescue. If they have a good organization they may have someone in the area that will pick up the dogs and get them to foster.

It's important that people who love animals get involved even in a small way.
