Abandoned dogs, ever faithful, are rescued together

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.” -Matthew 25:45

The great English philosopher Jeremy Bentham (1748 – 1832) wrote in Introduction to the Principles of Morals and Legislation:

It may come one day to be recognized, that the number of legs, the villosity of the skin, or the termination of the os sacrum, are reasons equally insufficient for abandoning a sensitive being to the same fate [as a human slave]. What else is it that should trace the insuperable line? Is it the faculty of reason, or perhaps, the faculty for discourse?…the question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?

Unlike wild animals, pet cats and dogs are bred by humans, which makes us responsible for them.
Please consider giving one of them a home, or donate to an animal shelter. Avoid national outfits that spend most of their funds on administration, ads, and solicitations. Give to your local animal shelter instead, about which you can get information and oversight. Even $1 helps.

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

And if you have a cat and dog, make sure s/he is microchipped so that, like the dog in the video below, if your pet ever gets lost, you’ll be able to find your dear companion.

  1. I cried like a baby watching this one. I hope they will be adopted together. After all they have been through they deserve to be happy and content in each other’s company forever. We have adopted 2 stray dogs in the past and they were the most loyal, loving dogs I have ever had. 🙂

    • Humankind’s cruelty towards animals far surpasses its cruelty to its fellow humans. Most sickening to say we behave like animals. If only we did, the world would be a far, far better place to live in for ALL.

  3. The dog I have now was a “rescue”. I knew her because she lived on a rural property with a man who let me store my trucks and trailers there. Whenever I went out there,she’d greet me at the gate,run alongside my truck as I drove to my area,watch me work,and I’d see her occasionally go chase a rabbit or ground squirrel. She was left with a new resident there when the Man had to move out of State for work,and the woman who moved in just wanted her gone;she even asked a friend of mine to shoot the dog! He refused the $100.00 and instead went to the property and fed the dogs each morning (There were two dogs there,Kita-my dog now,and one of her pups.),and called me. Apparently,the “care-taker” woman didn’t know I was coming to get the dog and took both of them to the Dog Pound. My friend called a couple of days later and told me he’d found them there,so I went down and arranged to get her. There were a couple of people already wanting the pup so I left him for them. While she was incarcerated,she got some of her shots,and I took her to my Veterinarian after I got her and had her spayed,she got a full physical with blood tests,nails trimmed,teeth,hearing and eyes checked and was chipped. (They also drained her anal glands;some places don’t but should.) Anyway,she’s healthy,happy and gets lots of Love,and has proven to be a VERY good dog! This truly is a WIN/WIN deal!
