What a nice guy to get pups out of high kill shelters and into places that can give them a good home.
Met a lady today that adopted a dog that had been tied up to a stop sign NEXT to an animal shelter.
She went on and on about what a great dog he is.
She is a great person to have such kind things to say about this poor unfortunate beast who has now arrived in HEAVEN!
Don't spend an arm/leg buying designer dogs. Get one from a shelter. There are TONS of purebred dogs there.

Wonderful man, wonderful story, wonderful wee pets for all.
Fills the heart with such warmth to hear stories like this.
Is always good to think of the rescue dogs(as well as all the abandoned pets) out there. They are so happy to be adopted into a good home.

May Karma bless this man, this old world definitely needs more like him. Rescue animals make the best of pets, have two and they are precious. Lets not forget about the older animals, the ones no one wants to adopt, give them a peaceful place to live out their days.

Of course this is actually a story about carbon use (in addition to the kindness,) since there's a virtual conveyor belt of unwanted animals from, generalizing, red states to blue ones. That's why he's using all that airplane fuel.
I bet the percentage of neutered dogs and cats in a given community correlates well with average education levels....

Especially now, there are millions of pets who've been surrendered to shelters, who are, in turn, beyond capacity.
Gotta give it up for this guy, what he's doing is beyond the call...
