"It’s a companion. It’s unconditional love. It’s their best friend. In some ways, it will give people a reason to carry on.”
"The dog doesn't know he's 'homeless'. This man may be alone, but he has companionship. It's just enough to keep him going.Though he may have little else, this man has one good, loyal friend and companion. Blessings are where you find them."
"Roof or no roof, when they go to sleep tonight, they’ll be together."
"But imagine taking care of a dog when you have no shelter, no yard, no vehicle and little money. Where do you find food and water? What happens when the animal gets sick?"
"Homeless are people who still have hopes to rebound and the last thing they want to do is give up their pets."
"Most homeless shelters don't allow animals, forcing homeless pet owners to stay on the streets".
"Love my dog, he is my family."
This is a very touching and important issue: about the homeless and about their pets. What do you think about that?
