Be the Change For Animals!

Blog the Change

We know there are so many animals that need homes and so many that are in shelters. We have met some who came from very bad situations and it made us very sad for them. We have seen so many horrible stories of poor sad animals who have been abused or neglected or abandoned. We are so sad for them. Mom says one day we will get a shelter dog. We aren't so keen on the idea, just because we're bossy! But, we do like the idea of helping other animals. We even let Mom foster a dog one time. (Then she wanted to keep it and it turned into a big issue, so we are not fostering any more.)
There are lots of ways to help shelters and rescue groups though! You can donate food and old towels or blankets. You can donate your time. Of course, you can adopt an animal.
We hope that one day all of this sadness will change... but we know that nothing will happen if our 2-leggers don't go do something about it!

Here's us with our Dad (taken about a year or so ago). 


  1. This must be the day to remind two leggers about donations to shelters. The Road Dogs did the same. I think it is GRRRREAT to give them a little NUDGE now and then. Blog hop on Thursday? I thought it was only on Saturday. I like it. THANKS for the GRRRREAT post.

  2. Milly & Shelby - We think we found out about Blog the Change from your website a week or so ago. Thanks for putting that button thingy on your blog so we learned about it! We joined the blog hop today, too! If you get a chance, please read our post today where we're beggin' on behalf of Mountainair Shelter in NM. We totally agree that the humans gots to do the somethin' but that doesn't necessarily mean bringing all the strays home! It can get kinda crowded when they do that!
    Have a fabulous MilShelb day!

  3. It's really sad when people don't care for their doggies anymore!
    I was a shelter doggie!
    We just have to keep helping as much as we can!!!

  5. It is so sad sometimes but there are happy endings a lot of the time too....We all have to do our part....

  6. Yay for Blog The Change!
    Mom and me is STILL trying to convince dad that we should go to the shelter and gets me a brudder or a sissy. But mom and dad do supports them with the green papers. :)

  8. Oh dis just a wonderful post.
    I thinks it would be difficult fur my mum to foster cuz her is a little on da sensitive side and once they walk in our front door dat would be it. But, we do support our local humane society and a doxie rescue. We tries to do what we can.

  9. What a great post!

    My mom would fail foster. That's why she only does transports. If we fostered, she'd have a hard time handing each pup over to his furever home. I probably would to. I love dogs. The more the merrier, if you ask me and Cali! Now my doxie sister.... not as much. Hehee...


  10. My mom fosters a lot and does a lot of work at the local shelter. She says it can be sad, but there is so many thing to do you can help no matter what!

  15. Mom also gets very sad and leaky when she hears bad stories about innocent animals. She wants to foster in the worst way, but Dad says no way, not because he doesn't want to, butt because he knows she'd be just like your Mom and want to keep them all!

    Butt thank you for this post and reminding all hoomans that there are ways they can help!
