thank you so much for sharing this information. It's half of the definition of what I am, what I stand for, what I LIVE for. (the other half being the equivalent for humans). I absolutely adopt over buying, unless the seller is an idiot (see a lot of those). It's SO important to talk about this issue and educate people on the simple things each of you can do to help the victims, and help STOP this ridiculous behavious. The same as bullying at schools. If you see it happening, stand up against it, fight it, use your power as an equal person to demand the situation change. I'm so full of hope and excitement everytime I hear of a success story. I grew up with rescue animals, and like people, they're greatful and loving and great big sucks! Having pets is about also seeing them as creatures bonded to you, they look up to you, look forward to you, rely solely on you for everything they need to survive. I have nightmares when I have to face an evil like the cruelty that animals sometimes endure. Anyways, thanks again for the information, I really hope everyone takes a little time out of their day to read about the hardships animals face.
