The Humane Society of the United States estimates that there are over 70,000 puppies and kittens born every twenty-four hours. The sad fact is that just is not possible to place them all. Every year over 20 million animals end up in a shelter. Over 15 million of them are killed. Of those animals 61% of the dogs and 75% of the cats are killed.
Everyone's help is needed to stop the killing.

Thoughts Of A Feral
by Annette Easdon

Dedicated to all the kind and caring people
who give the lonely ferals
a little care, a little love, and a little hope.

I sit beneath the bushes as she fills my dish each day,
I only venture out to eat when she has gone away,
I know it will upset her when I turn away and hide,
As every day she tries her best to get me by her side.

I wish that I could let her know that I don't want to run,
And hope that she will understand it's nothing that she's done.
I'd like to have her stroke me and pat my weary head,
But fear will overcome and I'll run and hide instead.

For all the kindly people who feed the strays each day,
I pray the Lord will care for them as they have cared for me.

Sissy & Old Guy
"Of all the creatures ever made, Man is the most detestable. He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain."
 -- Mark Twain
For every human born there are 15 dogs born and 45 cats born.  Spay-Neuter is the solution to cat overpopulation.
