Man’s Best Friend
As we strive to “Remind, Encourage and Inspire” others to make life good for people in every possible way, my thoughts turn to one of my favorite subjects: Man’s Best Friend.
We’re lucky here at The Make Life Good Company. As we scan the globe, the Internet, and even our own web site and social media channels, we discover the ways that people not only make life good for people, but for animals as well. We see the cruel ways in which people disregard animal life, and then we discover the ways that heroes emerge each day to combat the evil in our world.
Here are some of those ways:
- In Providence, RI, an animal was believed to have been thrown from an automobile and killed. But we see organizations like the SPCA around to pursue justice and to offer rewards for information leading to the prosecution of the perpetrators. Fortunately, the SPCA determined that the dog was killed beforehand, and was not thrown from a car. But without agencies like the SPCA, one less voice would be heard in support of animals.
- At the University of Rhode Island we see students committed to training dogs for the future benefit of others who need special assistance. These students went to URI in some cases because of the freedom they were afforded to make this a part of not only their curriculum, but their lives. Check out the “Puppy Raisers Club” at URI.
- Service dogs are also regularly featured on the Today Show (“Wrangler”) to raise awareness about the importance of Service Animals to those in need of assistance at home. This has to inspire others to become involved in this worthwhile endeavor.
- Want to really raise the bar of preserving animal life? It was divulged at the Westminster Kennel Dog Show in NYC that one concerned group of lovers of animal life actually saved a breed from extinction! Can the love and values about the importance of animal life be expressed any more deeply than this?
That’s it for now. We hope that this blog helps to “remind, encourage and inspire” you to make life good for others – and dogs and other pets. Adopt a dog (or other pet) today. Let us know if we can help!
