Hi Margaret: Our cat Ziggy was born in October but we got him from a friend.

When you think about it, most dogs don't live longer than 10 years or so. Not like a cat. A cat can live to be 20 or even older. So I imagine there is a bigger need for dogs to be adopted. Wish we had a lifestyle that would support a dog in it, but it is just not to be.

You are so right about having a lifestyle that supports a dog. I do love my cat Phoebe

I'm not sure if we will ever get another dog BUT if we did he/she would definitely come from the shelter Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland .

Anyone that is looking to add a dog or a cat to the family needs to consider a rescue dog

Hello Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland thank you for this wonderful local post...shelter babies are near and dear to my heart.  All of my "kids" are rescues, and typically the "unadoptable" ones.

Good morning Margaret. We adopted our last dog. What a treat! Now live in a non-pet environment. Maybe some day again. Enjoy your day!

Good morning Margaret. Any reason to adopt is a good one and sooooooo many good and loving animals die waiting. Tragic.

You know Margaret, the girls have been begging, I mean politely asking for a furry companion for quite some time now! We may just have to check it out the shelters this month.

Wayne Martin Or maybe you could go visit/volunteer at one of the shelters or a humane society.  Animals all need some love.
