What a great organization. .

There are a lot of homeless people in downtown Kingston, and I came across one man who had a sweet orange kitty. He just loved that cat, he told me that the kitty meant so much to him because it cuddled him every night.

Thank you so much for the link. I was in tears. Not for the animals but for the people.

I see the homeless alot with their dogs. Those dogs are so well behaved and socialized - we certainly could use a lesson or two.

My car is usually caring dog food. Whenever I see someone in need, I cannot give money but I do give the dog food. The owners are so grateful that even once I was offered a coffee. Good people whose only link to acceptance is with their pets.

Thanks for the reminder about the homeless on two folds.
