Hello and welcome to Paw Print On the Heart, a blog that I have dedicated to writing about animal rescue, animal health, and animal rights with a strong focus on cats and dogs.
Like many other people out there – I really hate writing about myself. However, it would be best if you know a little bit about me as the author. First off – that lovely photo you see to the left? that would be me. It isn’t the best – but at least you can put a face to the words!
The biggest thing to know?
I’m an animal person though and though!
Not only growing up did I have a love of animals, but I also always had pets around. The pets I had ranged from dogs, a cat, a hamster, a baby bunny…you get the idea. In April 2012 I adopted my first pet on my own – I got her from a small non profit shelter in Baltimore, MD called Charm City Animal Rescue. I named her Athena based off of the lines going back on her cheek and my love of art. Three years later, I also adopted a second cat with my boyfriend from he Humane Society of Washington D.C. We named her Nyx because she is all black.
I had always really wanted to be more actively involved in animal rescue. The only question was how?
Every summer I would constantly read articles online about rescues and how ever summer it would be kitten/puppy season and the shelters would begin to overflow. So I thought to myself “what can I do about it?” Since money was most certainly out of the question (Don’t get me wrong I donate where I can) and I did not have a whole lot of time to commit either. I could not foster since I didn’t have the space, I decided bringing awareness was the best option so I decided to start a blog, thats how Paw Print On The Heart was born.
So – now that you have a brief backstory, I hope that you in some way find my writings on shelters and pet adoptions, and even occasionally animal rights, to be insightful.
Remember: Those who say money cant buy love – never paid an adoption fee.
