"Puppies are Forever … not just for Christmas …" 🎵

So I was in Taco Bell today, because the Enchirito is back for only one more day …

… anyway, I heard this song for the first time. So appropriate:

(YouTube) Sia - Puppies Are Forever

@geoff.hom Thank you for sharing such an important message. I volunteer at The Animal Pad dog rescue in San Diego and unfortunately we have seen several cases where people have purchased a puppy during the holidays, but then dumped the puppy at a shelter shortly after. It is heartbreaking.

It is great to see celebrities like Sia use their fame and talents to spread a pawsitive message. Education is key, everyone can make a difference by simply sharing that music video and spreading the important message behind it.

Here in France the number of animals discarded come the summer holidays is a national disgrace. So much so that anyone wanting to buy a pet now has to show proof of being able to look after it. My home country, the U.K. equally has a terrible reputation for discarding pets at xmas and summer holidays. The dogs home, Battersea (if it is still there!) annually had to destroy thousands of pets, absolutely heartbreaking!

@Julie-Moderator my heart breaks every time I see someone looking to “re-home” their pet. They say they are moving, now have kids, going back to office, and virtually any excuse they can come up with. I cannot even imagine the heartbreak these animals experience when discarded this way. I feel bad for the young ones, but I am disgusted when I see people drop off elderly animals (over even 7 years old) as they have been part of a family that just doesn’t want them any longer.

Thank you for being part of a great service to all these discarded and abandoned creatures on Earth.
