#Canadians are adopting more #animals than ever before, but there are still over 150,000 lost or abandoned #pets that are taken in by animal shelters like @humanecanada every year. Join me for #AnimalsRock this Thursday, a fab red carpet #charity#casino overlooking the #Ottawa River. Get your ticket now at humanecanada.ca and help us raise funds to rescue more animals across #Canada . 🐶🐱🐵🐍🐷🐰🐭🦎🐠🐤🐴🐸

People have consistently let me down, treated me with total disrespect, made me feel like worthless scum. Animals, i.e. PETS Love unconditionally. They CARE when you are upset or crying. They are there for you when the chips are down. When you come home from being out, they see YOUR car and are excited to greet you. They sleep next to you at night when there are no humans that want to be next to you. They don't insult you, judge you for being fat, or shun you for making bad choices. They don't treat you like "the flavor of the month". They have love, respect, joy, and LOYALTY for you that people just don't give anymore. Life without pets would be pointless for me. They are always there for me whereas people betray... Over and over. Thank you, God for fur companions. #petsrulepeopledrool#animalsrock#humanssuck#loyalty#commitment#nostringsattached#iloveanimals#peopledissapointbynature#animalsrule #🐱🐶🐭🐹🐰🐸🐔🐴🐢🦎🦌🐎🐈🐇🐾
😂 Look at her face. Isn't she freaking cute? Chickens are so funny, curious and awesome. I wish everyone would visit a sanctuary and hold one. Stroke their feathers and allow them to nap in your lap/arms. Watch them close their eyes in trust because they feel safe. It melts your heart. #seemenotmeat#friendsnotfood#rescued#rescuechickens#lovethemdonteatthem
For those who always ask me.....how can you live without eating meat?? Or, “how do you survive?” Which are questions I am very much used too. For one, I never shoot back with “how can you eat meat?” Because I never tell people how they should live, it’s their choice just like it’s my own choice not to eat meat. I have been here this long so I’m pretty sure living without meat is survivable. While you crave meat, I crave salads and veggies, because I did not grow up eating a lot of meat. By the time I could choose not to, I was still young.
Secondly, most look at their plate and see a delicious steak that will satisfy their hunger. Me, I see an animal, that went through so much pain and suffering to sit on a plate that will be enjoyed in the matter of minutes and never thought of again. I see an innocent animal that had a soul, feelings and a family, who’s life was cut short to satisfy the needs of hunger. I am not saying that just because I choose not to eat it that everyone else should. I’m just saying I choose not to eat it and ask not to be made out as some weirdo hippie that will tell everyone else to live as I do. I think from the animals point of view but I also accept that others have their point of view. I’m a thinker, inside, outside and all around the box.
Live as you will, but don’t judge until you know someone’s story. Oh, and FYI, I have never had a steak nor bacon (that I can remember, not sure when I was very young) and everyone is so shocked when I say this 😂😂 I ❤️ animals 🦄🐬🦍🐘🐅🦓🐑🐄🐕🐿🦃🦌🐐🦏
It’s the simple things in life you appreciate the most and for our editor @aliciatharp it’s the joy her dog Molly brings her every day. Take a picture of your pet and tag @fortwayneliving - and don’t miss Alicia’s column in our August issue! #lastword#petsarefamily#furbaby#animalsrock
