When you Spay or Neuter your Pets, you Save Lives !

SAVE THE LIVES OF THOUSANDS, BY SIMPLY SPAYING AND NEUTERING YOUR PETS.

You, may very well be a very Responsible Pet Owner; but, if your pet accidentally gets outdoors and is gone for fifteen minutes, your pet may have already produced an unwanted litter of homeless pets left on the Streets, vulnerable to the cruelties of this World.



Spaying and Neutering is the best way to reduce the numbers of animals entering our shelters; and there are great benefits for you and your pet.

The number One Breed of dog to be killed in a Shelter for being homeless is the Pit Bull, the Second Breed of dog to be killed in a Shelter for being homeless is the Chihuahua. Right now in parts of California, such as San Francisco, there are THOUSANDS of Chihuahua's stray on the Streets, the Pounds and Rescues are filled to their Brims and cannot house any more...If these dogs are not spayed and neutered they are producing thousands of more homeless pets.
Other States have similar problems with stray Chihuahua's, like Arizona and New Mexico.


You’ll Never Believe How Many Stray Chihuahuas Are Running Around in the San Francisco Area

    Do not let unfixed male cats roam around outside, you are contributing to the thousands of feral cats filling the Streets of every City. Do not let male or female domestic cats outdoors period. It is a well known fact that domestic cats left outdoors are causing small wild critters and song birds to be going extinct. If you let your Cats roam around outdoors you are leaving them vulnerable and potential victims to crimes against animals. Keep you cats in the house, please. Save our small wildlife from extinction, that is forever and when it is man-made, it is unacceptable.   http://www.wildlifeextra.com/go/news/feral-cat-US.html#cr

It is the 13 th Anniversary of the tragic 911 event, here is a Rememberance Tribute.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF THOSE LIVES WHO WERE LOST IN THE TRAGEDY OF 911.
 
 
 
 
 
The following video from Budweiser is the most BEAUTIFUL Tribute I have ever seen! 



Budweiser 911 Tribute - Respect

 The Commercial Budweiser produced after 9/11. They aired it only once -- so as not to make a profit from the tragedy. This was aired during Super Bowl XXXVI in February 2002.

 



 The World Trade Center video is a moving video! A compiled history of the Twin Towers.

Do try and watch it in it's entirety. It is well worth it.
