What a great idea! I would be devastated if I had to give up my cat for any reason. Thanks to everyone who helps this organization out!

I agree. I think there is a lot of need for organizations like this that can help people keep their pets in difficult times.

This sounds like a wonderful organization. I'm sure this group has helped a lot of people cope when everything seems to be crumbling around them. I tried to find more info on the group, but there's not a lot of info on it on the internet. I'm sure as it grows, it will get more name recognition and probably more donations.

This is a great thing I love that some people don't have to give their pets up now what about people who have to go to the homeless shelter and they have beloved pets that they have to give up I hope there is help for them too. I remember that I almost had to give Skitters up one year when we were thinking about moving where there would be no dogs allowed. I would hate to have to give her up I understand these people giving Skitters, Teddy or Shorty up would be like me giving up one of my children or other family members because even though I don't have any kids yet Skitters, Teddy and Shorty are my children right now as far as I'm concerened.

even as healthy as i am now, you take away my animals and i'll roll over and die right here. that's a helluva hit. knowing you're going to die of a terminal illness AND then having your animals taken away too? that big of a loss borders on kafkaesque.
