My husband had been trying to surprise me, and after we recover from the hurt and financial loss I'm sure that is how we will proceed. I only hope to prevent others from going through this. Thank you so much.
Certified shelters and respectable animal organizations nationwide are overflowing with healthy pets simply looking for a loving home. Unfortunately: Because of the huge population explosion in unwanted animals being born due to lack of spaying/neutering, many wonderful would-be pets are euthanized before even being given a chance.
Visit your local shelter and I guarantee you'll find that special friend just right for you. -- The maximum effective range of an excuse is ZERO meters!
