Does anyone else get a lump in their throat when the ASPCA commercials air?
I give to our local and state Humane society's and the World Wildlife fund but geesh those commercials are going to have me making out another check
Omg I know! Everytime one comes on, my sister and I groan and say "not again!!" and change the channel. It makes me want to go out and save all the sad little puppies, but then that'd quickly turn into a hoarding situation..which isnt very good
I know, my daughter begged and begged me to go adopt "Echo". (She's 14 BTW) I think it's so unfair to show them to us bleeding hearts! But not really. If they make more people go out and adopt an animal or give a donation it's a good thing! I just wish it wasn't me doing it all the time! Lol
I cry every time I see the new one that has the christmas song playing. The white dog at the end that has his nose sticking out from under the bars just makes me sad. And the little tabby cat in the cage at 0:41 seconds looks just like my Kovu and it looks like it is crying. :"(
I hate when commercials guilty you into wanting to give them money =/ I understand you can't turn a blind eye to a problem and expect it to get fixed though. My heart aches to help out all neglected cats... and in one of those commercials there is a cat that looks really feral, and I know it had to have been put to sleep. It tears my heart out.
What I do to help the problem, is I buy all my cat food and litter from our local SPCA. THey get the food for free and resell it for VERY cheap, so:
1- Wal Mart isnt getting my money
2- I save about 3 dollars per bag
3- I am directly responsible for saving the lives of their cats
Its well worth the extra gas to drive out there and buy the food. =)
