I’ve given up on New Year’s resolutions personally, but when it comes to the animals, that’s a different story. When one is in the middle of being involved in rescue and gets feeds from all over the country, there are plenty of resolutions when it comes to the animals.
1. I resolve to be more proactive sharing lost pets in Wichita on Facebook to help their owners find them (you’ll find these on the Wichita Pet Rescue Examiner Facebook page to share, too).
2. I resolve to continue to share the many Facebook calls for help from across the country as I never know when one reaches the right person (or people) who CAN help.
3. I resolve to continue posting articles about fostering because if just one inspires someone to step up and foster, that will be one more life saved (and rescue is about saving each companion animal one life at a time).
4. I resolve to bring you more of the companion animals in foster with rescues to help them find homes and enable rescues to save more.
5. I resolve to find time to actually ride my horse this year.
What are your resolutions for the animals? Will you join a crossposting network to help save animals at risk of euthanasia in shelters? Will you tell 10 people about spay/neuter as the primary way to reduce animal overpopulation? Will you volunteer with a shelter or rescue? Will you resolve to make regular pet food donations to the Kansas Food Bank to help people keep their pet? Share your resolution in the comments!
Remember, the Wichita Pet Rescue Facebook page will have additional postings of articles from the national Examiners that bring you information and stories from around the country as well as animals in need of homes in the Wichita area. Anyone can post on the page for a lost pet, asking about information, or to share your adoption story.
When you subscribe to the Wichita Pet Rescue Examiner, you’ll get stories of animals in need, those that have happy endings, pet health information and advice, and information about rescues in the area when you’re ready to add to your family. Stories in the works for 2012: reporting abuse in Sedgwick County, Kansas’ ferret rescue, new giant breed rescue, and of course, stories of animals that need homes.
