Fairy ‘Tails’ Do Come True

Written by PETA | August 6, 2010



Meet Jax and Stanley, two furry refuges from the Gulf Coast who are already putting the bad memories of being relinquished to a shelter behind them. After loads of belly rubs and TLC, both dogs are settling in comfortably in their new foster home. Jax is a snuggler who loves laps and naps, while independent Stanley staked out his comfy new bed.


And here’s Bruce: 100-lbs. of sassy in a 10-lb. body. People who meet this tiny dynamo drop to their knees to properly greet him—they can’t help themselves!

We all know that the oil disaster impacted wildlife, but the spill also led to countless area residents surrendering their dogs to shelters when money grew too tight or when they relocated and left their dog behind. Animal angel Pamela Anderson led the way to a mass rescue and nearly 50 dogs—including Jax, Stanley and Bruce—made their way back to our Virginia headquarters where eager families were ready to take them home permanently or to foster them while they recuperate.

You, too, can save a life! If you are ready to open your heart and home to a companion, never buy from a breeder or a pet store, please adopt.

    During the disaster that was Hurricane Katrina I worked in a kennel that cared for the dogs and other pets of those who were relocated from Louisiana free of charge. The animals stayed at the kennel until their guardians could find housing that accepted pets or until they were able to return home. None of the animals were given up for adoption all eventually returned to their families.

    Is there any way we could make these abuse charges a felony in all states It would help so much for animal abusers not to get a slap on the wrist for their horrific acts of cruelty.
