If you don’t already know Finn & Charley, I highly recommend that you pop over there immediately! It’s hard, at the best of times, not to fall in love with Golden Retrievers but these two are truly special.
They epitomise the generosity and love the makes our Blogoshere so amazing.
Many of you know about Savannah’s Mom’s efforts to save Leo, a very sick cat. To help raise funds, the magnificent Mollie & Alfie ran an auction.
The fantastic Finn & Charley chose to bid on an item, not for themselves but for other rescue animals, highlighting a truly wonderful shelter. How sweet is that! Of course, Goldens are so sweet by nature that we really weren’t surprised.
They want to highlight Kent Animal Shelter in NY. They were so impressed by the shelter that they immediately felt the need to gain them more exposure. Obviously, there’s exposure happening anyway, as the animals are predominantly naked but we are not talking that type of exposure here!
Being adopted themselves, Finn & Charley feel strongly about Pro-Life organisations, such as Kent Animal Shelter, who ensure their animals are given as much time as necessary to find their perfect “forever homes”. No animal in their care will be euthanised unless incurably ill.
Kent Animal Shelter has been running for over 40 years, caring for, loving and re-homing thousands of abused, abandoned and homeless animals. They provide a happy and tranquil place, on a scenic property near the Peconic River. Animals receive exercise, love and expert medical attention. They even run Pet Therapy Programs and strive to educate people regarding pet care, leadership and compassion by working with local schools and groups.
Their vision is greater than the animals in their care, as they reach out into the community, sharing knowledge and providing low cost spay/neuter programs. They have even gone so far as to start a Retirement Home Program for cats.
If you are ever thinking of a adopting a pet, or feel that you can help them in any way, Kent Animal Shelter comes highly recommended and is certainly worth a visit. They typically have about 100 animals available for adoption.
They can be found at 2259 River Road, in Calverton.
Our eternal thanks to Finn & Charley for highlighting this wonderful organisation. Give them a High Five everybody!!!!
