  • Animal Shelter Dogs Get New Blankets And Hope 2014

    2014 BLANKETS AND MORE FOR L.A. ANIMAL SHELTERS It’s that time again … colder nights , the need for warm blankets, and a lil faith in humanity to help… The first year I had set a modest goal to collect 100 blankets for 100 shelter dogs. We reached that goal by day one and by the end of winter had reached nearly 5,000 blankets, towels, beds and we stopped counting. 20,000 blankets and 4 years later.. now 2014 and its time for our fifth year to start and we are hoping to continue to bring hope, comfort, and love to shelter animals again. “It was cold last night and it will be cold again tomorrow. Do you think you could have made it through an entire night sleeping in the open air, on a cold concrete floor? The shelter dogs had no choice. They shivered through the nite all alone and forgotten. You could give a dog warmth, comfort and hope with a small donation. Please consider helping.. if you don’t then who will??,” - Mia Anelli , founder. Quote from first year.

  • TOUCHING PHOTOS OF SHELTER DOGS AND THE VOLUNTEERS WHO GAVE THEM HOPE

    Volunteering at an animal shelter can at some times be a emotionally draining, comfortless and a dispiriting thing to do. It’s more then just a philanthropic action or benevolent gester. It’s a true selflessness and understanding that someone needs you to bring them hope in a more often then not , hopeless place. Volunteering at the shelter could mean giving an animal that was unwanted his first belly scratch. It is holding the dirty, comforting the scared, and loving the unloved. It’s realizing that happy endings are fleeting but because you came to meet , pet or play that a dog was able able to forget for a little while that they may have been forgotten. The photos prove my words and just how worth it volunteering at the animal shelter truly is. .. Hopefully they will invoke someone to take on being selfless for an animal in need.

  • TURN OF THE CENTURY PHOTOS OF PIT BULLS AKA THE NANNY DOG

    Take a second, maybe a minute. .. look at this and get to know pit bulls. When’s the last time you saw a pit bull? How did you react? The average person might shrink back from an encounter with a pit bull, scooping up their kids or crossing to the other side of the street. Did you know? For many years (in the late 1800′s and into the early 1900′s) in America, Pit Bulls were known as “The Nanny Dog” and were often in charge of babysitting the children. If you wanted your children kept safe, you got a Pit Bull because they are so loyal and protective. “An American favorite, the pit bull was featured in army recruitment posters during World War I and there were several famous pit bulls that served in the American military. They were a dog that was seen as a protector, a friend and an athlete, the sort of dog Americans aspired to have by their side…Pit bulls were also seen as a child’s best friend. On the silver screen the pit bull was a constant companion to the adorable kids in the Our Gang comedies, as well as with Buster Brown.”-R.O’Connor:National Geographic The American Temperance Testing Society (ATTS) puts thousands of dogs – purebreds and spayed and neutered mixed-breeds – through their paces each year. The dogs are tested for skittishness, aggression and their ability to differentiate between threatening and non-threatening humans. Among all of the breeds ATTS tested – over 30,000 dogs through May 2011 — 83 percent passed the test. How did pitbulls do? They showed an above average temperament, with 86 percent making the grade. Pitbulls are the second most tolerant breed tested by ATTS, after only golden retreivers. Remember the breed didn’t change, people did… people use their strength and forgiving loyalty to hurt them. Once was called America’s Dog and the nanny dog, now being banned. Its an outrage and you shouldn’t stand for it in your town. https://www.facebook.com/mia.anelli @insightrescue
