When my friend Dana Veraldi, of Deer Dana, asked me to be apart of this wonderful charity event for Animal Haven – you guys know I was more than down! I’ve been a bleeding heart for animals and animal causes since I can remember. The first cat I ever owned was a kitten I rescued at the tender age of 6 after finding that the neighborhood kids were holding it hostage and torturing it. By age 7 I was donating my little chump change to Green Peace to save the dolphins. Long story short, I love animals.

My mother was adamant about not liking cats, but allowed me to keep the first one – supporting my heroic endeavors. Later, she fell in love and we ended up adopting 2 other stray cats to the dismay of my brother and sister who were allergic.

If you’re looking to find a pet, DO NOT BUY A PET  and certainly avoid buying puppies that come from Puppy Mills.

Adoption is the best choice.

Give an animal a home and you will not regret it. If not, support your local Animal Shelters by donating your money or better yet your time.
