I trained race horses for over twenty years and still own three horses now so even though I make my living by caring for dogs now I tend to donate my time and money towards horse related charities.  I do some fostering dogs however.  I especially love pregnant mamas so we can enjoy raising puppies without adding to the dog population myself.

They had one cat live to 34, and many make it to 28-30. while I know their special energy may be hard to duplicate, they do teach and demonstrate ways to help cats (and other animals) with holistic approaches. They sponsor classes and have some great books about grief.… Read more »
