It never seems to fail that when I think everyone has lost their mind and their compassion for everyone and everything around them I get one of “those” phone calls. I know it is a bit melodramatic but there it is. Sometimes it just is.
We have seen an increase of kids having birthday parties and instead of gifts for themselves they ask for donations for the animals instead. I don’t know if the kids have the idea or if it is just the parents teaching their kids that they should help in the community and give to those who are in need. In this case homeless animals. For whatever the reason these kids are learning to think of others instead of just themselves.
I had the mother of one of these kids call today. It has been a rough couple of days for my morale here and I needed her call today. What a great thing for kids to learn. She wanted to know what were the priorities on our wish list. She wanted to be sure the other parents knew what we needed. She said the kids were excited to go shopping for the animals.
Faith in humanity restored, for today at least. One day at a time.
Easter is approaching.
Easter bunnies, chocolate, baby chicks, egg hunts, and lots of bunnies and chicks surrendered to shelter in the following weeks.
It is somewhat of a tradition. Go get a bunny or a baby chick for Easter. A plush toy bunny or chick is fantastic, the real live versions eat, poop, chew and require care. A lot of care. It happens every year. A month or two after Easter here comes the bunnies and the baby chicks now young chickens or better yet roosters. The feed stores sell hundreds which I am sure is a low estimate this time of year for Easter presents. All little kids want a real Easter Bunny or a cute little fuzzy chick or baby duck.
The baby animals are cute and while they require a lot of care themselves they also grow up to be a lifetime commitment. This doesn’t always happen. Many times the once cute baby animals are turned loose to fend for themselves or they are surrendered to shelters. Many don’t make it through their first year of life.
Be part of the solution. Buy a stuffed bunny for an Easter present this year.
Make a donation to your favorite animal rescue or shelter this Easter and help the animals that were purchased as presents get forever homes.
