Helping my neighbor find loving homes for the stray and abandoned, neutered cats and dogs she's rescued here in Los Angeles, California.
Helping people in general, and matching them up with what really matters in their lives, though not always a small thing, makes me feel happy & fuzzy inside, yet at this moment (and it seemed perfectly within the title you started this forum with), it's helping these particular animals find you all out there who can really use a small and furry addition to the joys in your life.
And if you have no joy, or lacking a bit, cats and dogs are an amazing antidote, or at least a great sugar pill to make a pleasing difference (these animals are not for those looking for punching bags, or hate sponges to get their anger out on, please - and i know most of us are not like that, but it just must be said).
She has too many animals for one property, and animal control is pressuring her to find homes for them, or expect the animals to be trapped, put into a shelter, and will have very little time for anyone to find them, and if not; put to death.
She has three small dogs in need of homes, and about four cats.
She has a site set up called, Silent Roar Pet Rescue (dot org).
When I see them, and they come to me for attention, that too gives me a fuzzy and warm feeling inside, and then knowing what's going to happen to takes that away, but then i remember how honored i am to be in there presence and love in the time we're able to share now, and then i'm warm and fuzzy inside again :-)
