–honest. But first….
You know there are hungry doggies and kittehs living with homeless and less fortunate people. You’ve seen them. On the sidewalks or street corners of your home town. Or they could be the canine/feline members of a family who are having hard times making ends meet.
Your heart goes out to them. Are they fed regularly or at all? What’s going to happen to them? “For families that can’t afford to feed their pets, the consequences are greater than just an empty stomach. Many pets will be surrendered to already overburdened shelters, many more will be abandoned. Finding new homes for these pets are never guaranteed. Families will be torn apart, simply because there’s not enough money to buy pet food.”
I thought this was so important that I wanted to tell you about the Pongo Fund–a food bank for these guys—right here in Portland! It was established in memory of Pongo, an almost 19-year-old canine gourmet who ‘lived his years with zest and insisted on making each and every meal a culinary adventure‘. And now hungry doggies and kittehs will know where their next meal will come from. And, by the way, only quality food is purchased with donations to this fund.
So, you want to know what happened. Well, I went to a fund-raiser event last weekend and volunteers were making cute pipe cleaner pets. I picked one out and Mom gave them lots of green papers. Then we went to Uncle Mark’s house to water plants and check out the chickens and bees and apple trees and berry bushes and….pshew, that was a lot!
I didn’t mean to.
Pee Ess: It didn’t have any good flavors, so I left it to remind me that I am fortunate.
Not everyone is.
