World Animal Day - for me 365 days a year

posted on 4th of october, 2009

A lot of people are talking about how to make more profit at DT, how to generate more sales, how to make a living out of stock photography, etc. Just like in the daily world.
But there is more to life than just money...........

Today is World Animal Day. Most people will celebrate this day by buying treats or presents for their pet animals. And give more attention to their pet on this specific day. A strange ritual.....cause why not give a pet 365 days a year what he deserves?

Already for many many years that is exactly what I do. I don't have pets anymore but do help out at a local rabbit rescue shelter.

We try to re-home abandoned domestic rabbits, to give them a caring and loving home for the rest of their lifes. We try to educate the people about how to keep rabbits....

Hi Littemacprod....., wow ...you have done more than I have ever done at the shelter ! I discovered that the volunteers working in our shelter are good with animals, but not with the computer. So as I have a full-time job, I can't come everyday or weekend to the shelters, I take pictures of all animals in the shelters, of rehoming sessions, of other news items and put them on their websites. I help with rehoming rabbits and talk to the people.... and often just talk to the rabbits.....haha.. Thanks for replying and that you treat any of your pets with respect!

Everyday is animal day at my house. Five cats and one dog demand I treat them as they deserve! I have done volunteer work at the wildlife care center from feeding the orpaned baby birds to putting sun screen on a pig. I cleaned the bunny cages and threw hay in stalls for bedding. It was all very rewarding! Animals rely on people for their protection and care. It is such a small thing to do.

haha Rennaesp....I recognize the fear of bringing home more and more animals. I know for sure that if my boyfriend would do this kind of work at the rabbit shelter, we would now share our house with at least 20 of them. Especially the ones which are difficult to rehome (old age, illness). Luckily I am still able to come home without a new rabbit, although I am always tempted, but then I think about all the work/cleaning/going to vet and the grief after loosing your beloved pet.....and that keeps me from doing it - uptill now. LOL

And DMCCALE, maybe your grand paw is right: I come across all kinds of people in the shelter and it goes from youngster with piercings and red hair to families and elderly people. But they all come with one goal: to give an animal a second chance. The ones who don't care.....don't show up in the shelter. So in that sense your grandpaw is right...for both sides :)

and yes....watching alll those bunny pictures makes me smile again. They can be very cheeky animal,...(More)
