  1. That is such a sad and inexcusable number of yearly lost lives due to human ignorance. My heart breaks not only for those animals whose lives are cut short but also for all the people who are forced to end the precious lives of animals daily. What horror . I am thankful for Best Friends and for the fact that more and more people are becoming aware of the plight of animals , one of our treasures in life, and helping them.

  11. Great post. We think Mr. Galaxy is awesome. Several of the kitties here like to watch his program and meow to some of the cats he has on the episodes. They try and tell those other kitties he's trying to help them and to just listen! We always purr and pray for happy forever homes for all souls.
    Love and hugs to all you guys :-)
    P.S., I see your share links under your post. I'll get it figured out. Thanks!

  20. I can't wait for this season. In the previews for the upcoming season the little boy crying about not leaving his cat had me right in the heart. I think it's going to be pawsome! And I love Jackson and Best Friends and pretty much everything about this campaign.
