Hi, Azteca and Tweety
Mom told me it depends on the animal shelter so if you are interested check it out. Mom wanted me to point out that there is a BIG difference between Animal Control and a Shelter. Her group, Animal Rescue Fund, works closely with the county Animal Control. Without her group hundreds of former pets would be put down per year. Most counties do not have such a group. Animals must be held five to seven days in order to give an owner an opportunity to reclaim them and then they are put up for adoption. This varies due to crowding but usually an animal is given X amount of time to be adopted and then they are euthanized. It is a serious and sad fact in this country. Too many pets and not enough homes. Her group does NOT have a shelter but they financially support those who do. They work closely with Animal Control, tranferring animals to "No Kill" facilities. There are members including Mom who will foster to "buy some time" for the pet. The groups' main focus is spay/neuter and rescue. However, due to the lousy economy many people who are forced to seek help from free food pantries ALSO need pet food. Her group is helping now with that. That is why Mom is gone so much. The entire month of December at TSC is a "Pet Food Drive." Right now they are spending $600.00 per month and giving out over 1,000 pounds of dog and cat food A MONTH! I am so happy that I have a safe, warm home with a huge cage and a big variety of foods to eat and best of all, unconditional love. (even when I am in a bad mood!)I know that there are a lot of dogs and cats as well as A LOT OF BIRDS that either live in dire conditions or are actually abused. It can be a cruel world but Moms' Motto is," WE MUST DO WHAT WE CAN TO HELP THE INNOCENT." Kisses, Jenna.
