Animals & Pets

Field Notes: Life seeming a little dull lately? Finding that you have too much time on your hands? Lacking companionship? Why not adopt or rescue an animal? Not only are there dog rescues, there are also, horse, bird, and cat rescues, to name a few. Don't have the time or the room for a pet? Well then maybe you can donate time or money to your local animal shelter? Or volunteer at a wildlife organization? If you are really serious about making a difference and are willing to invest a lot of time and love, give some thought to being a foster parent or trainer for an organization that trains pets for assisting the disabled. Invest some of your time and your love in an animal today, you will get a great return on your investment!!
