Kindness Matters

Hi, I'm a 36 year old wife, and mother of 2 children and 2 dogs. I have never blogged before. This site was sent to me by a friend and I like what I see here so I stuck around. I feel life is what you make it. There is a lot of good in life and that is what we need to focus on. I am very active in the girl scouts with my daughter, and my husband is a cub scout leader with my son. I will share all my ideas to maybe help others who are willing to change the world for the better.

Shelters are filled to capacity, with animals being euthanized at alarming rates. We can all help, even if it's a little donation. Help feed a pet, so families are able keep them.

We need to do all we can to not only prevent danger to our pet, but to make others aware of the danger.
