Poem I Adopted your Dog today

I adopted your dog today
The one you left at the pound
The one you had for ten years
and no longer wanted around

I adopted your dog today
Did you know he lost weight?
Did you know he is scared and depressed?
And seems to have lost all faith

I adopted your dog today
He had fleas and a little cold
Guess you don’t care what shape he’s in
You abadoned him I’m told

I adopted your dog today
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies?
Or was there no reason he couldn’t stay?

I adopted your dog today
He doesn’t play or eat much
I quess he’s very sad inside and
it’ll take time for him to trust

I adopted your dog today
and here he is going to stay
He found his forever home
and a warm bed in wich to lay

I adopted your dog today
and shall give him all he will need
Patience, love and security
so he can forget your selfish deed.

If you want to feel like you’ve made a real difference as a dog owner, adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue group. There are few other ways to make such a huge difference in another creature’s life.

The Humane Society estimates that only in the US six to eight million dogs and cats are surrendered to shelters each year. Of those animals, about half are adopted, and half are euthanized. There are simply more dogs than there are good homes for them
(one reason why spaying and neutering is so important).

There are shelters and rescue groups everywhere. So when thinking of getting a puppy check those organisations first. Rescue groups are organizations that take dogs out of shelters and keep them in foster homes, and sometimes private kennels, until homes can be found. Some are breed-specific, while others take all types of dogs. Overall, they tend to give the dogs more medical and behavioral care than many shelters. Just google for a shelter or rescue group in your area and visit.

Make this world a better place and save a life by adopting!
