Kimba and Simba are at All About Animals Rescue Spay and Neuter Clinic. Because if this, Gabriel has no one to tease, harass or otherwise bother. You know he likes to be a jerk.
Still, he knows why and I know why.
I wish that every person in the world could know and understand the value of spay and neuter. I have heard people say that it is unnatural to deprive us of our reproductive parts. Maybe it is a little strange to deny us our biological want to breed but, hey, the NEED isn't there. There are millions of wonderful, loving, amazing dogs and cats, bunnies and lizards, and even hedgehogs, sugar gliders and other neato pets being put down every year because people let us breed without considering whether good homes for all of us exist.
I want a "no kill" paradigm to exist. It is unfortunate that it seems impossible until people will whole-heartedly embrace spay / neuter. And I mean regardless of a pet's pedigree or exotic appeal.
We aren't commodities. We aren't money machines. We are your family. Please treat us as such. Treat us as children. Make the right medical and emotional decisions for us.
Don't breed or buy while shelter pets die. I was a shelter pet redeemed on my last day by K9 Stray Rescue League. Eva was an animal control sacrifice saved only by her sweet eyes and wagging tail. Everyone here at our rescue has a story that begins with fear and pain. Please, save us! Don't breed. Don't buy. Don't think of your pet as an investment in money... think of your pet as an investment in love and karma.
