Are you wondering how you are going to care for your pet as you age in place? Are you wondering if you should adopt a pet as you age in place? This guide will help you decide on the best choice for you. Studies have shown that owning a pet can be physically and mentally beneficial for people of all ages. In the case of senior citizens, “just 15 minutes bonding with an animal sets off a chemical chain reaction in the brain, lowering levels of the fight-or-flight hormone, cortisol, and increasing production of the feel-good hormone serotonin. The result: heart rate, blood pressure and stress levels immediately drop. Over the long term, pet and human interactions can lower cholesterol levels, fight depression and may even help protect against heart disease and stroke” (Byrne, 2015). …………….
The Anti-DogFighting Campaign (A.D.F.C.) has different subcategories besides just educating and helping to end dog fighting. One new project of A.D.F.C. is the Project HOPE Community Outreach program.
Project HOPE is a program designed in helping the low income families of communities with dog/cat food, blankets, dog/cat toys, towels, dog/cat collars, …etc. This program will also reach out to the small animal shelters/rescues that are barely noticed and don’t have major funding as the larger, more well-known rescues and are in need of these very same items for all their intakes. Project HOPE Community Outreach is a way to help those in need and build partnerships with many wonderful shelters/rescues.
The Project HOPE team can be found on the A.D.F.C. Facebook site. Some areas already have donation boxes in place at various business locations around town like Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee.
The Anti-DogFighting Campaign (A.D.F.C.) is an organization that was founded in hopes to put an end to all facades of dog fighting while educating the public about the signs of dog fighting and how to report it. The A.D.F.C. advocates strive to be a voice for so many animals whose lives are harmed and injured by dog fighting. A.D.F.C. advocates also work and strive for harsher punishment for criminals who commit these crimes. A.D.F.C.’s goal is to end the cruel “sport” of dog fighting worldwide while giving the community a confidential place to report any suspicious behavior. If you suspect dog fighting, please call our tip line listed below, “private message” the Anti-DogFighting Campaign staff on our Community page on Facebook or email us and we will be more than happy to help. All information is “COMPLETELY AND STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL”. If you are a Georgia resident, you can also contact the Georgia Team Manager, Shirley Duckworth at S.firstname.lastname@example.org or the Georgia Assistant Manager, Hope Lewallen at email@example.com.
We wanted to share one of the images from our recent test shoot with Rob. With the official shoot days away, I thought it would be a good idea for Rob to get use to collaborating with me on his upcoming project.
Interview coming up in March editions of magazines but this place is super cool and the things they do even more so ! Meet Riley the Chief Smile Officer (CSO) and visit them at www.secondlifeatlanta.org
Smaller, rural shelters are often the most overcrowded and least funded. Rob’s Rescues is making a special point to reach out to these shelters and also try to educate the children in these areas on how they can help shelter animals.
Here are a few of the gorgeous animals sitting in this small shelter waiting for a home. Please see these and others here :
