If They Freeze To Death, So Should You!

Please bring your pets inside! They deserve the warmth of your home, not the coldness of your heart!

MY BLANKET (2)

My Blanket

Bad weather’s rolling in again
The chill is in the air,
Oh God please help my owners see
That I need extra care!

The last time that I went through this
I thought that I would die,
If no one sees that I need help
More frozen tears I’ll cry!

The ground is very cold and hard
With ice, my chain weighs more,
Why do they think I don’t deserve
To come in through their door?

The chimney smoke is what I smell
As I try to survive,
Do they not know that I exist
And want to stay alive?

I guess they have no love for me
I’m just a worthless pup,
If they don’t care about my life
I wish they’d give me up!

My body seems to ache a lot
All that I feel is pain,
I’m not sure why I fight to live
There’s nothing that I’ll gain!

The flurries are now coming down
It’s time for me to go,
Tonight sweet death will find me on
My blanket made of snow!

PETS ARE FAMILY AND FAMILY IS FOREVER!

If you are not going to make a commitment for life, please do not add a pet to your family! They are meant to be forever….not just for now!

LAST NIGHT

Last Night

Last night as I was seeking warmth
Your window let me see,
The kind of life I used to have
Before they set me free!

I used to have a couch like yours
Where I would cuddle up,
But last night I was in the cold
A lost and lonely pup!

I saw your fancy water bowl
So you will not know thirst,
Last night I drank my water from
A pipe that froze and burst!

You also had a big red dish
With food for you to eat,
Last night I found a garbage bag
With scraps of rotten meat!

I saw your people loving you
It made your tail wag fast,
Last night I dreamt that I was loved
A flashback from my past!

They gave you lots of special treats
How lucky can you be?
I hoped that you would come outside
And share your treats with me!

I watched as you ran up the stairs
They tucked you into bed,
And then last night I closed my eyes
By morning I was dead!

RESCUE HEROES!

I wrote this specifically for the Humane Society of Forsyth County, Georgia.  However, this goes out to all of the wonderful people who either work or volunteer in animal shelters, trying to save lives everyday. It is such a rewarding, yet heartbreaking job. God bless all of you for doing what you do.

NO SMILES TODAY

 

No Smiles Today

Today you came to see a dog
But did not like our style,
You said you felt uncomfortable
Because we did not smile!

Please understand how hard it is
To rescue every day,
The sadness that we see each week
Would take your smile away!

On Monday we received a cat
With duct tape on her paws,
We’re not sure if she’ll walk again
Abuse will be the cause!

On Tuesday we lost two sweet pups
The foster threw them out,
She dumped them in a wooded lot
They’ll starve to death, no doubt!

On Wednesday we heard from our vet
Dogs cancer now has spread,
We’ll make her last days comfortable
But soon, she will be dead!

On Thursday we received the news
That made us lose all hope,
Police had found a Pocket Pit
That kids hung from a rope!

On Friday right outside our gates
A bag of trash was found,
Three kittens and a momma cat
No movement and no sound!

On Saturday we saw a dog
With chain, tied to a tree,
His collar was beneath his skin
At least in death he’s free!

Now here we are on Sunday morn
We want to do things right,
We love that you have come to us
To make a future bright!

The family that left as you came
Just gave their sweet lab up,
They said, “he’s now too old for us
We’ll trade him for a pup!”

The sadness in this poor dogs eyes
Made us all shed a tear,
We took him in, but made them leave
No pup for them, not here!

So yes, we did not smile at you
In fact, we cried a tear,
But please don’t take it personal
We’re so glad that you’re here!

Although you might not see it now
We have much love for you,
You are the reason that we can
Continue what we do!

We try real hard to not get down
We want to treat you great,
But truth be told, it’s hard at times
Forgive us, please don’t hate!

If you adopt a pet from us
Tonight for you we’ll pray,
Because of you we’ll smile soon
It just won’t be today!

Always Ask!

Bullies are everywhere, and they are hurting our children. Lives are being lost because of physical and/or emotional abuse. It is hard not to hate a bully. However, we must try to remember that there is a reason why a child would act out in such mean and vindictive ways! What is going on in their young life that makes them want to hurt others? The only way to get an answer is to ask. Remember, they are children, too. We must assume that at one time, they were innocent and fun loving kids. We need to find out what went wrong and, if possible, we need to get them help! All children deserve a chance at happiness and a bully, for whatever reason, is truly unhappy. Why?

Please Ask!

I know I push the kids around
And make them want to cry,
Instead of getting mad at me
Why don’t you find out why?

It is not normal to do this
Behavior every day,
But I’m not sure how I should act
This is my only way!

I was not born to be this mean
It is a skill I learned,
For every day of my short life
It’s punishment I earned!

My parents seem to not want me
I just get in their way,
To make sure that I know this fact
They hit me every day!

At first I tried to do things right
And be the best I could,
But soon I learned that I was bad
They told me I’m no good!

So now I just accepted that
This is how life will be,
Inside I feel it’s now my job
To repeat history!

Each day I go to school quite mad
And pick a kid or two,
The ones who look like they deserve
To suffer like I do!

Again, I have to ask you this
Before I make them die,
Instead of getting mad at me
Why don’t you find out why?
