Last year, @Chas10Buttigieg and I welcomed Buddy into our household and into our lives. Like his “brother” Truman, he quickly became a big source of joy. Rescue dogs have long been an important part of my life, and I'm with all those on board to #ClearTheShelters.
Before @FirstDogsSB, there was Olivia. She found her way out of a pound into her forever home with me and my parents in South Bend.
Buddy, Truman, and Olivia are reminders of how many loving, beautiful animals are waiting for forever homes in shelters across America. This #ClearTheShelters Day, open your home and your heart to a rescue animal in need:

My heart will break in half if Billy Bob doesn’t find a forever home today 😭

He’s at @HumaneLake

2. He’s just a little puppy, why can’t someone scoop him up from @HumaneLake? I bet he’s lonely and scared. 😭

3. Folks, fingers crossed Billy Bob will find a forever home on Monday!

He's just a tiny little guy and I know he's going to make someone so happy!

Here’s a thread that nobody asked for comparing today’s urgent global problems to dim sum.
1/14 Nuclear Weapons v. Xiao Long Bao: Treat with respect or face intense explosion, third degree burns and worse. Experts disagree on how to handle in a never-ending debate. Also, it’s a challenging dish to make. #globalzero #nuclearweapons
2/14 Climate Crisis v. Chicken Feet: Look, you can’t soft sell this. It’s not chicken “change” for chrissakes. It’s the most intimidating item on the table, and there’s no disguising it for what it is. Deniers are vocal. #climatechange #globalwarming

I have a little #Caturday/#ClearTheShelters story for you that I hope you'll share.

The Wife just brought our newest family members home.

Maggie (black) and Iris (Siamese). Two beautiful, elderly cats.

Here they are in their former home.
Iris is 14. Maggie is 12. Their original person was forced to enter a nursing home last week.

She has dementia and it was no longer safe for her or the cats for her to live alone.

It's a very sad story.
Not only has she had to leave her home, but also her cat friends of well over a decade. So sad.

All involved have been traumatized.

As you know, we previously had a small no kill shelter. A friend asked if we could place these elderly cats.

Today is #ClearTheShelters day. Adopting this guy was one of the best pieces of self-care I’ve ever done. And he seems pretty happy.
Adopt a fu dog, or maybe an Ewok, today! #ClearTheShelters
So gentle with the kiddo

For 15 years I ran a small no-kill cat shelter co-founded by me and three friends.
We rescued, rehabbed and placed more than 800 cats and kittens in that time.

I rescued this cat--a kitten abandoned after Christmas--in a blizzard. She lost an ear to frostbite.
We closed the shelter 2rs ago after my paralysis, but maintain the feral colony & house the remaining cats who were unadoptable due to behavior or health problems.

Please spay/neuter your pets. If you can no longer care for them, relinquish them to a shelter.
Abandoning pets makes those animals targets.
I've rescued cats covered in cigarette burns and other wounds. I rescued a kitten kids had swung by her leg and thrown. The leg needed amputation. One cat turned up in my yard shot by a BB gun. #CleartheShelters
