Have you ever looked at a little puppy that came from a horrible background? The poor thing was never feed, chained to a tree, given no water, beat, and left to die. Has that puppy ever run up to you with a wagging tail with a ball in its mouth just wanting you to play with it? Have you ever given an old dirty dog a bath and seen how grateful he is just for someone to show him some love. Have you ever nursed a litter of newborn kittens back to life after someone beat their mother to death with a broom, then watch them happily play with their new owners? Have you ever seen how happy a grumpy cat can be when you scratch behind her ears and give her food, water, and a nice warm bed after she's been living on the streets all her life? Have you seen the love in a shelter pets eyes when you take them home?
