  • This is my third time doing laundry in two days but man, I love these dudes. 
In honor of the 10th anniversary of #CelebrateShelterPets Day, I'm going to share 10 things that I love about Luke & Levi, despite my increased utilities bill:

1. They are ALWAYS excited to see me. 
2. They make for great snuggle pillows.

3. They never fail to make me laugh.

4. They made me a more responsible person.

5. Luke inspired me get my finances in order. 
6. Levi inspired my passion for pet adoption.

7. They don't judge me when I watch Friends for the 1239298324 time.

8. If I want to cancel plans, they are my excuse. 
9. They make me feel special. 
10. They are PURE LOVE!

Christmas is next week and you know I’m not a fan of giving animals as gifts but if you're planning to, please consider a shelter dog. Rescuing a shelter dog is literally saving a life, as the US euthanizes hundreds of thousands of shelter animals every year. You can find dogs of all ages, breeds and sizes at your local animal shelter or rescue. If you're ready to take on the commitment trust me, you won't regret it.

  • #petstory #one 
Name: Bellatrix Princess Peach aka Trixie aka Pixel
Age: 5-6 years old
Story: oh boy. She comes from a tiny village in Poland, where she lived with an abusive alcoholic. The official story is that Trixie was hit by a car in the beginning of January 2019. After she was hit which resulted in a broken spine, she laid 2 days next to the road. After 2 days the “owner” felt like taking her home, laid her on a pile of dirty cloths and kept her there for nearly 2 weeks!!!! 2 weeks. With a broken spine, no medical help, unable to walk or sit. She laid there covered in her feces until finally one of the party friends of the “owner” decided to report the situation to the local animal rescue organization. She was rescued, had immediate surgery, but due to the fact that she was laying for 2 weeks without help, doctors were not able to re-set her spine correctly anymore. All they could do was stabilize it. After surgery followed 4 months of hospitalization in which she fought numerous infections and had physical therapy. She can’t walk, or pee by herself. But she is THE MOST happy dog on earth. Her Mom says she enjoys especially long strolls outside and chewing plastic eyes off of her toys :) The first picture was taken on the day of the rescue. The second picture was taken on the day she met her new parents for the first time ❤️ the movie shows what a #trooper she is and how great she is doing now. She came a long way from being scared of everything (including the light switches) to being such bright, cheerful pup!

  • Grateful to the family that took this cuddlebug to the shelter 2 years ago to give him a better home.  We are so glad we adopted him.  #CelebrateShelterPets Day.  The cat formerly known as Darknight or “the Dark Knight” is now Murray.

  • So today is #celebrateshelterpets day. We have been away from our funny lil bud for 9 days and miss him so much. Here are our favorite things about our shelter pup:
1) He loves cuddles. Even though he’s nervous around humans, he will seek out kindness and affection. 
2) The things you are self conscious about, he loves the most—like feet and armpits
3) He is playful. He likes making animal friends best, and loves trying to get them to play. 
4) He is so smart. He wants to learn and be your good friend. I honestly thought this little dog would be a sweet dummy, but he most certainly is not dumb.
5) He’s ours.

  • Today is #CelebrateShelterPets day apparently, and celebrating shelter animal companions is one of my favourite things. Here are the ones we currently live with. Lemon is wonderful because she is cheerful, strong headed, awkward, loyal, loving, and determined. It doesn’t hurt that she’s fluffy and has a magnificent mustache, too. Ender is terrific because he will love you in exchange for love, play with you, lick your tears until you’re laughing instead of crying, learn your name, and cuddle you when you need it most - or even if you don’t think you need it (or want it) but really you do. And his butt is adorable. #adoptdontshop #vegandogs

  • Apparently today is #celebrateshelterpets day and I’m all for it. Adopting this beautiful girl was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. She turns 5 on the 11th, and she’s brought my life so much joy since I brought her home. ❤️

  • It’s #celebrateshelterpets day, so look at my good son, and check your local shelter first for your new best friend. I promise, they live up to the hype.

  • CELEBRATE SHELTER PETS DAY! 🐼🦊 🦉Before I started traveling, I spent a few days a week (over 250 logged hours in 6 months) volunteering with rescue dogs, cats, foxes, and "trash pandas" 😂🐼 Now that I'm traveling and can't really volunteer much, I try to donate monies online to support the AMAZING volunteers on the ground!  On this day, I urge you to adopt rescue animals. If not, then a donation also helps them and u feel happy like us 😁💕🐼

  • today we celebrate shelter pets!
Lloyd came into @ocanimal as a stray, they guessed his age, they guessed his birthday, and they neutered him shortly after he came in because they knew he would go quick 😍 he came in to the shelter about a month after i had started looking for a dog. i had been checking the shelter website everyday at my desk job, seeing if there were some dogs i wanted to visit and hoped they would still be there when i went after work. he was one of 5 dogs that day that i was going in for, only two were still there! i picked my sisters up on the way there that day, i think i knew it was a special visit. and as standoffish & honestly probably annoyed that we got him out of his bed as he was, he is the one that i chose 🥰 looking back this story makes me a lil emotional because i had no idea what i was doing, i didn’t ask any questions, i was only going to the one shelter, and i was only picking dogs based on breed & if they stood out to me (a picture is so important for this reason!!) and yet somehow i ended up with my soulmutt, my most perfect boy, who i love soooo much. all by chance. i have no reason why i adopted him... just that i ended up choosing him ☺️ #imcryingrightnow #whorescuedwho  #hechangedmylife and so this day is for you big boy!!! ♥️♥️♥️ #celebrateshelterpets

Jack-diddle, Scruffman - I wish I could speak dog so you could understand that you’ve had the biggest, most fulfilling impact on my life and I love you more than your cutie-pie little faces will ever know. Also, V sorry I have to brush your teeth, I know you hate it.

  • Today is the 10th annual Celebrate Shelter Pets day, a day to highlight pets adopted from animal shelters to encourage people to #adoptdontshop . You all know these goofs came from @acctphilly , Philadelphia’s municipal animal shelter (the most underfunded big-city shelter in the country. Hi @phillymayor ! ). Though I feel sad for their previous family who couldn’t take them along, I can’t imagine my life without them and adopting them has been an amazing experience. And because of adopting them, I was made more aware of the needs at the shelter and became a volunteer there, which has been one of the most enriching experiences of my life. There are animals of all shapes, sizes, ages, breeds, and personalities waiting at your local shelter for a home. ❤️ If you’ve adopted from an animal shelter, tell me about your pet in the comments! .
