A Facebook friend just introduced me to the National Canine Research Council, and I’m glad she did because it’s an organization I would be happy to refer people to as a resource. At their website, you’ll find information about breed specific legislation (and its ineffectiveness), proper pet care and acquisition, and other topics of interest to responsible pet guardians. Now, if only we could get the irresponsible pet guardians to check out this resource!
This month I challenge you to speak up to someone you know who may be caring for or acquiring pets irresponsibly. Share this link, print off a .pdf from our resource library, or simply have a conversation about how acting more responsibly will positively affect his or her life.
