Here in the UK you can visit local rescues and the RSPCA,Dogs Trust...though this time of year in the UK they don't do adoptions because they don't want them being given as gifts and then becoming unwanted again.But don't let that put you off,you can still start the process.

You can help by Volunteering your time to help them or find out what the need in supplies

You can find out more at or by reading the labels when you do your shopping at the supermarket.Look for free range animals and certified products.

  7. These are such wonderful ideas. Love them!
    Hugs to you and Speedy!

  8. Great suggestions.

    One thing that has made me very happy as I've read these posts is I don't remember the last time I saw a puppy for sale in a pet store here. As a child almost every mall had a store that displayed various breeds for sale, but those are long gone. There is one pet store that hosts cats from a rescue to give them exposure and some still sell fish and small animals, but I can honestly say I don't remember the last time I saw puppies or kittens being sold in a pet store and that is progress.

  9. SQUAAAAAWK! Kaci and Kali are both dogs that came from a kill shelter where they were on the "list".

  12. You know that I'm not an adopted cat Speedy. But I don't come from a shop or from a cat's mill. I am an Aby. In France there is no such thing for us.
    My human is vegetarian and eats just organic food. It's very important to do it.
    PS : I love the picture with the dog and the cookies. So cute !

    1. Of course Hisia,Kitties like you have to come from respected cat breeders ,which there is nothing wrong with,and France has it right no puppy or kitty mills,and that is how it should be in every country,xx Rachel
