Holiday Heroes Interviews: Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League 🐱 🐢

Happy holidays to all! I’m happy to share a project that has come full circle. And just in time for the holidays! You may recall my Quilting For Rescue Pets blog about my small kennel quilts to fit pet carriers for cats and small dogs.

This year, I sent quilts to several animal rescue groups that save the lives of pets in disaster areas. To celebrate the holidays, I decided to conduct interviews with some of the rescue groups.

I’m sharing another Holiday Heroes Interview about these wonderful animal rescue groups. Staff and volunteers give so much to help homeless animals.

Pets For Life in Pet Service Deserts 🐱 🐢 πŸ‡ 🦜

Have you ever heard of a pet service desert? It’s a community where services for pets are not available or affordable. Families in pet service deserts live in low-income areas. But the Humane Society of the US (HSUS) Pets For Life (PFL) program is working to close the gap in pet wellness services.

Poverty creates barriers in access to health care, quality food and veterinary care. One source noted and that the “extreme lack of access to pet resources is a national crisis” that is often ignored.

Active Lives for Special Needs Pets 😎

I’m excited to see a growing awareness and appreciation for special needs pets! This pets-are-family awakening means that many cats and dogs, who were once considered unadoptable, are getting a second chance.

Rescue animals who are too old, too sick, too shy, too small or have behavior challenges, are now getting the help they need.

Thankfully, many of these wonderful animals are no longer automatically euthanized.
