Animals are ready to literally save their human family from harm as well as give endless love when comfort is needed. It is so important to remember that one should give back to the furry members of society by adopting a pet in need of someone to love. Celebrities have long been using their status to help in the efforts of getting pets adopted. With the efforts of Susan Rubin's "From the Pound to the Penthouse" celebrities are speaking up in the webisode series about their efforts and love for adopted pets.
Follow favorite celebrities leads and find a homeless pet to adopt and love
Rubin's wonderful series of videos showcases celebrity interviews, as described on the show's parent site, "is based on the core Jewish tradition of tz'ar ba'alei hayim, concern for the suffering of all living beings." In a world where humans are battling each other in war zones and during everyday living, pets have proved to be faithful companions. The wonderful photographer Susan D. Rubin is using her talents, along with the help of celebrity friends to help get the word out about the significance of pet adoption.
Days, months and weeks are devoted by organizations in hopes of raising awareness, and getting neglected and homeless animals adopted. In countries around the world pets are in need of loving companions to save them. Easily find a pet on an adoption day or adoption week at a pet store, local shelter, or even on Broadway during "Broadway Barks".
Adopted pets are bringing love and comfort to veterans suffering after their battle to protect all
Time and time again it is reported how a loving animal has brought hope and comfort back into the life of a veteran hurting from physical and emotional harms. Reported in the Huffington Post on Nov. 30, two pups, both adopted, have banded together to give love and support to 27 year old veteran Douglas Pittsley of San Diego.
Pittsley served in the U.S. Marine Corps for eight years. Deployed a number of times during his efforts in the military caused him anger and depression upon returning home. In an attempt to curb his hurting and stress Pittsley adopted Dixie, a shepherd mix. When Dixie was brought home she found a friend to help her ease Pittsley's ill feelings. Minka, another dog that Pittsley and his family adopted this same year, became close mates with Dixie teaming up in their efforts to comfort their human dad.
Mindy, Pittsley's wife told the Huffington Post "They know when he's had a rough day at work and a rougher night of sleep from terrors, they will barrel into the room and lay by his side and play with him, Minka will cuddle with him and nibble at his nose while Dixie will sit on one side with a paw on his shoulder like she's hugging him." As with Pittsley, adopting an animal gives veterans and others suffering a chance to avert their attention away from their hurts. Their loving furry adopted mates faithfully stay by their side providing much needed support and love to ease pain and stress.
