CHATTER FROM THE MUSE

animal rescue

I am a firm believer in adopting rescued animals.  I have written a children's book about my Shihtzu Pumpkin, that I will publish soon.  Pumpkin is a rescue.  She is terrified by rain, thunder and lightning.  I am sure it is because she was out in the weather before she was rescued.  It was hard to write about my beloved little dog being cold, wet and hungry.  I thought I had imagined a horrible ordeal for a dog endure.  Then I met Molly.
 
I met Molly this past weekend.  I wish you all could meet her.  She is a  fluffy little black dog.  She weighs about 10 pounds and is a little shy with strangers.  I called her and put my hand down so she could smell it.  She studied my intently with her beautiful big round brown eye.  Yes, she only has one eye.  
 
Molly was rescued from two little old lady hoarders.  They had over 100 dogs in their home when thankfully, the SPCA was called in.  Molly's eye had been gouged out - probably by one of the big dogs in the house.  The eye socket was repaired and the eye sewn shut.  Her "forever" family heard about her on a television report. 
 
The husband was not convinced adopting an animal that had been so tramatized was a good idea but his wife was determined and brought Molly home.   He took Molly for a walk and a big dog ran after them.  Molly was so frightened she could do nothing but stand still and shake.  He picked her up and held her against his heart and she had been his special fur baby ever since.
 
My Pumpkin and Molly have a happy ending to their story but so many animals do not have a happy ending.  Many suffer unimaginable horrors at the hands of people I can only describe as sub-human.  I am looking for lawmakers who will sponsor laws to punish animal abusers properly.  Our current laws do no more than a slap on the hand and maybe a small fine.  These people need to be punished enough that they will think twice before they abuse another animal.  Some of the abuse is so violent I would favor the death penalty for it.  People who abuse animals, children and those who can't defend themselves are a drain on the earths resources and should be permanently removed.
 
On the lighter side, legitimate animal rescue groups should be supported.  If you buy a pet from a pet store there is a very good chance you will buy a puppy mill puppy that may have terrible health isssues.  It is much wiser to adopt a pet from the SPCA or a breed rescue group.  Most have been carefully checked for health problems.  All pets in our homes should be spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted homeless animals.
