People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say

Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes

This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal. 

What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things 

People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life

Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.

Hello Friends,

This is a desperate plea for help. Both of my dogs, 7 year old Madison the Boston Terrier and 3 year old Raina the German Shepherd have tested positive for heart worms. Madison’s is advanced enough that the worm offspring are circulating in her blood stream. Treatment is very expensive, and for both dogs it will be around $1600 over the next four months. I started a GoFundMe page to accept donations of any kind over the next few months. Please take a look at http://www.gofundme.com/879cw4. If you can’t give, please reblog and share to help spread the word. Every little bit helps! Thanks!!!

My friend above is incredibly amazing. <3 She loves her dogs with all her heart and if anyone can help, even if it’s just by sharing this, please do.
