We may live at opposite ends of the globe, speak different languages, practice different religions, disagree politically, even stand on either side of the biker vs hiker controversy, but if you are someone who extends a helping hand to animals, you and I can still be friends. We have the basis for a relationship.
Last year at this time, I gave a pitch for animal rescue – the rewards of adopting homeless dogs and cats. Actually, I didn’t make the pitch, blogger friends contributed stories about their own pets and the ties that bind. And so we’re doing it a second time. Some contributions come from as far away as Australia, Germany, and Brazil; others are from truly exotic locations – Altadena, included. And here’s the thing about animal lovers – whether the story comes from Poland or Pasadena, we voice the same sentiments, we share a common ground.
