I was listening to a podcast, one of my favorites.  The podcaster has been talking about getting a dog – she and her boyfriend found their puppy.  My first question was – “did they rescue?”  I don’t know the answer to this yet, but I was surprised that my mind went directly to this question.  Not what breed, how old, what’s the name?  I just wanted to know if they rescued.

I respect a person’s choice to use a breeder, but my heart breaks a little bit when I see people in the public eye buy from breeders, because one of millions of animals didn’t find their home with them.  I’ll be honest and say that I think that people in the public eye should adopt.  Others may not agree with me and I feel kind of selfish admitting this, but if you have a platform, I want to see you do two things.

  1. Adopt a pet and promote rescue
  2. Educate people about finding a responsible breeder
I got an opportunity to put practice what I preach from Embark on Pet Health to help them promote a cool cause.  The first thing I did was take the pledge on the Embark On Pet Health site – each pledge triggers a donation of a Sergeant’s Pet Health Kit.  Bascially, Sergeant’s is going to donate up to 5,000 kits, which will make certain that newly adopted pets will go home with a great set of products that will get them off to a great start in their new home.
Embark on Pet Health

I popped over to the American Humane Association’s site and found their mission statement, which contains a sentence that everyone reading my blog will love…

“to unleash the full potential of the bond between humans and animals to the mutual benefit of both.”

Here’s a video by Tiffani Thiessen discussing Embark on Pet Health and please take the pledge to protect your pet’s health.

 

There is a Twitter Party on Wednesday, Feb. 20 at 7pm EST with the Embark spokesperson, Tiffani Thiessen. The hashtag for the Twitter Party will be #SergeantsPet.
