Orlando dogs for adoption
All of us are still in shock over the shooting tragedy at Pulse nightclub that happened this weekend in Orlando. I am so proud of the way the Orlando community and those of us who surround them are coming together to support the victims and one another. One thing that I thought of as events unfolded was the pets of those who will not be coming home to them. I know if something happened to me the first thing I would be worried about was my animals and I am sure those injured or killed love/loved their pets in the same way. So far there is not much information on how to help pets of victims but I can share what I do currently know of two organizations who are gearing up to assist. I am sure that foster or forever homes will be needed for some of the pets. If you know of a pet in need who has been impacted by this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org and perhaps I can share their story in an effort to help the animal.
