I just want to put a bug in everyone's ear. When you read the "freebie" ads to adopt a pet, please don't judge the person's home when making your decision whether or not to adopt that pet.
Some people don't have a lot of money or their house seems cluttered, etc. Try to keep in mind that these people adopting out these pets have put a lot of time and money into getting these pets healthy and ready to be adopted out to good homes; just because their homes don't meet your standards, the pets are more than likely to turn out to be the most loving and loyal pets of all.
It doesn't matter where the animals come from - they all need love and good homes.
Thank you for lending your ear.
