Pet Expert and Animal Welfare Advocate Colleen Paige,
and is all about embracing, saving and celebrating mixed breed dogs. The biggest percentage of dogs euthanized in the shelter each year are unwanted, medium to large mixed breed dogs, due to the constant over-breeding and public desire of designer dogs and pure bred puppies that are sold to pet stores supplied by puppy mills that often produce ill and horribly neglected animals.
National Mutt Day was created to raise awareness of the plight of mixed breed dogs in shelters around the nation and to educate the public about the sea of mixed breed dogs that desperately await new homes. Mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved, they live longer and are just as able to perform the duties of pure bred dogs - such as bomb and drug sniffing, search and rescue and guiding the blind.
So please visit your local shelter and find a new friend today! (Sorry. But I would not recommend adoption this close to the holidays!!) If you can't adopt a mixed breed friend on December 2nd, please donate at least $5 to your local animal shelter, as they all need financial assistance and every dollar counts!
You can also volunteer to walk a dog, donate food and other supplies needed to your local animal shelter or make a donation in the memory of a loved dog who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
Our goal is to save 10,000 Mutts this December 2nd from coast to coast!
PLEASE SPAY & NEUTER
So. About my plan. Uh.... Yeah. The pictures are in my camera and I do not know how to retrieve them!! Hmmm....How about using a plan B, instead? I love "Plan B's"!! Pictures of the two Beautifully Unique mutts who God has blessed my life with!! Abundantly.
