Loving Touch is an all volunteer, non-profit 501 (c ) (3) organization. Our mission is to help homeless animals find a better way of life and to help find new homes for pets that owner's can no longer keep. To prevent the birth of unwanted homeless animals by spaying/neutering every animal that we rescue. To provide medical care for each of our rescued animals. To educate the public in all aspects of pet care and responsibility. To provide a loving and safe environment for each of our rescued animals until a suitable home is found.
If you are like most of us falling in love with a pet is easy. Pets give us unconditional love, loyalty, and provide constant companionship. Adopting a pet, however, is a big decision. Dogs and cats are living beings that require lots of time, money and commitment -- over 15 years worth in many cases. Pet guardianship can be rewarding, but only if you think through your decision before you adopt.
Questions to Ask Yourself:
Why do you want a pet?
Adopting a pet because the kids have been asking for a puppy or a kitten usually ends up being a big mistake. If you have children under six years old, for example, you might consider waiting a few years before you adopt a companion animal. Problem free, responsible pet ownership requires children who are mature enough to properly handle and help care for your new pet.
Do you have time for a pet?
Dogs, cats and other companion animals cannot be ignored just because you or the children are too tired or too busy. T
