This week Humans of Dublin partnered with DSPCA to bring you the series, ‘Rescue Pets of Dublin’. Together we want to celebrate the joy pets bring to our lives and create public awareness of the plight many different kinds of animals endure while awaiting a home in shelters and rescue centres all around the globe.
11th of April is ‘Pet Day’, a great chance for those of us who own pets to show them how much we love them. Once you have indulged your own animals with their favourite treats, why not consider donating to a shelter or an animal welfare organisation?
There are so many neglected and unwanted animals waiting for some love and attention. You can donate your time, food, or even provide them with supplies. Maybe help out a friend with pets who is recovering from an illness, or someone who might just need a break to go on vacation. Every little bit helps. If you don’t already own a pet, what better time to adopt one? A good phrase to keep in mind is, “Adopt, Don’t Shop!”.
