So many people live alone now, especially if it is not by choice, that this puts many pets and other farm animals at risk of abandonment in the event that something bad happens to their owner such as loss of health or a job. This automatically puts their animals at risk of abandonment. There is currently no shortage of animal rescue and/or sanctuaries organizations throughout the world for animals such as dogs, cats, equines and other barnyard animals that come into peril, not including the well known organizations such as the ASPCA, or Humane Society of the United States and P.E.T.A. I identify many of these lesser known organizations on my Facebook page (see: www.Facebook.com/Lorene.Connolly) some of which I support with regular donations. But my own borzois come first and foremost because they live with me and need me most of all. And so, they are my first priority. It would be the same if I had donkeys. I know I would spend time during my day caring for them and just being there with them; grooming them, talking to them, massaging them telling them how much I love them. They would give me so much comfort in return, I know, in a way that is different than a borzoi, a kind of serenity. I know I would prefer to spend my quality time this way rather than socializing with people. Perhaps that is sad to some, but for me it is not. I have learned about myself that I prefer it that way.
If any reader of my Blog or Facebook page wants more information about the horse, donkey, barnyard sanctuary information, or information about equines for your own interests and the excellent organizations that support them that I have data mined from Facebook and the internet, you are welcome to email me: Lorenecon@gmail.com. This is a serious international movement, with organizations on every continent. There are very professional, committed, devoted and serious people creating a safety network to improve the quality of life for animals that would otherwise suffer a cruel, slow death.
