Music For Your Enjoyment

tv

Our world is ever changing. Remember when there were only three networks on TV?   Now there are so many choices that people are overwhelmed.   You add reality TV networks to the mix and it’s impossible to keep up.  A lot of people record, or “Tivo” shows so they can see them “when they have time”.  When does that happen?  We have become so overwhelmed with keeping up with work and family life that most people don’t have time for TV.  When they do watch it I wonder, how many people really take in what they are watching?  Are their minds still on something else?

Now, add the internet to the mix. Most people are on their computers for work and play.  It’s no wonder TV shows try to direct you to their website.  That’s where most people spend their time.  It is the place to find love, food, cars, investments, TV shows you missed, coupons and specials, old friends, as well as anything you need regarding animals.  That is why I am placing my show on the internet, so I know you will see it!

I wanted to share with you some sites I think you might want to put into your database.  You never know when you might need them.  You’re already on the computer reading this 🙂   I have posted them below.

There is also a term a lot of people have heard but really don’t understand.  It is called “Fostering”.  I recently did a report on Greyhounds.  The dogs are rescued, sent to prison and trained by the prisoners.  After they are trained they are sent to foster homes, or rescues, until they are adopted.

I always thought that fostering meant you HAD to keep the animal until a new home was found.  That is not the case. Most of the time animals are only with you for a short time, maybe a week or two.  If you have to leave for a trip, the organization will take the animal.  If you only want a “friend” for a few weeks or a month, that is fine.  There is a HUGE NEED for foster homes everywhere.  There are all kinds of animals that need a foster home.  It can be fun to learn about a new animal without the long term commitment.  The animals come with food.  Any medical care is also taken care of for you.  All the animal needs is a safe and loving place to stay, temporarily.  In addition, think of the love you will get in return.

The other nice thing about fostering is that you just opened up a spot for another animal.  If it had not been for you, that animal might have been put down because there was no place for it to go.

If you would like to find out more regarding fostering, I suggest you contact your local shelter, rescue or other animal organization.  Ask, “what does takes to be a foster parent”?

medical animal

Organizations that will help owners that cannot afford vet care.

Most of them handle serious medical conditions and injury.  Some focus on low income, elderly and handicapped owners.  A couple of them are for rescue organizations and homeless pets.

    I agree. I look forward to your post and send it to all of my contacts. It is one of the best sites I know of for animals. If your website is this good I can only imagine how wonderful the show will be. I can’t wait.

    Great Website Paige:

    I tagged it in my favorites collection.

    Keep up the great work!

  • Betsy says:

    I never knew this about fostering. I thought the same as you, you might get stuck with the animal for a long time. This is a great option if you want an animal for company, for a short time. I guess people can also try out different breeds as well.
