We never really think about how the economy affects our pets, but a lot of people without jobs have chosen to give up their animals, just so they can get by. Fortunately, there are organizations around, like no-kill animal shelters, that can take these animals in and try to find homes for them. But times are tough for the people trying to help, too. I just read about a place called Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue, right here in southern California. It turns out a lot of people are giving up their horses, too. It’s so sad when people have to give up the pets they love. If you’re an animal lover, and you want to help animals as much as I do, please reach out to your local shelter or places like Lifesavers.
