Pets are a lifetime commitment Maybe it's the holidays and all the stress and money issues that come with the meals, gifts, travel, etc., but it seems that a lot of people are giving their animals to the "pound" or looking to re-home them. Many of these animals are touted as old, many are not spayed or neutered and some are sick. It really makes me wonder what the intention of getting the animal was in the first place. Was the animal considered a distraction or was it so cute when a baby it was irresistible and now it's old news? Was it a gift that wasn't really wanted? Getting a pet should be a lifetime commitment. Occasionally circumstances might come up that would make re-homing a pet unavoidable, but those circumstances should be rare and life threatening. Anyanimal gives its owner 100 percent and they deserve nothing less back. That animals are just dismissed and given away or killed, especially if they are older and have spent their whole life with a family, is despicable ANIMAL TALES FRIENDS OF PLUMAS COUNTY ANIMALS and speaks to the values of the individual. We encourage people to plan ahead and be sure they will be able to care for an animal that may live for 20 years. Have a contingency plan -- family or friends that will take the pet if you should die or become sick. For short-term help in feeding your pet, Friends of PC Animals has a Crisis Food Program and can help you with dog or cat food. As long as Friends has donated food available we are more than willing to help in times of financial need with a donation of dry food to help you get by a short-money month. Friends of PC Animals will take animals as we have availability, but we have not been able to keep up with requests. It is so frustrating to get calls from someone who has 11 cats they want to get rid of and then to see ads from people who are still breeding dogs and cats. Please spay and/or neuter your pet, offer to spay/neuter your neighbor's pet and if you plan on getting a new member of the family this holiday season please adopt from a rescue. Remember, these animals will be family members and deserve the same care, love and attention every member of your family shares -- for their whole life. Have a wonderful holiday season from all the volunteers at Friends! Friends of PC Animals is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation and all donations are tax deductible. No one in Friends gets a salary and no money is spent on administrative fees. Friends is not a county entity. Tax-deductible donations can be sent to Friends, PO Box 182, Quincy, 95971, or brought to the site at 2163 E. Main St, Quincy. Thank you for your continued support.
