Donate to animal shelter in memory of previous pets

May 22, 2013 — The editor:

This week, as we remember loved ones who have passed on, I would like to remind everyone not to forget any four legged friends who have passed on as well. 

We as a society are reminded daily of the riches and joy that these animals bring to our lives. Whether it is a dog, cat, or any other cuddly animal, no one can deny the impact they have on us. I know as an Afghanistan veteran, I have my dogs to thank for helping me through some tough times. Whether it is enticing me into a competitive game of fetch, or just a simple sit down in our favorite recliner for a quick nap, the joy that comes from it is a blessing. 

I encourage everyone who reads this and knows where I am coming from, to join me in honoring my deceased beloved friends by donating to the Boyd County Animal Shelter this Memorial Day. From May 26 through June 1, during the second annual “You are remembered” campaign, the animal shelter will display the pictures of your beloved pets in the shelter and, with your permission, post them online for all to see. Just bring a bag of dog food and picture of your pet to the shelter and they will proudly display your pet for all to see how much they were a part of your lives. 

This is a great way to honor your pet and help the many other homeless and abandoned pets that are still in need. You can contact the animal shelter at 324- 0745 for more information. I hope to see you all there and am looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful pictures. You never know, while you are there, you may find another best friend.
