Do you feed the homeless every morning after breakfast? Neither do most people I know.
So how do you become a hero is this world where all of selfless sacrifice has been outsourced to appropriate government agencies?
Simple: next time you pass by those pet shops with cute little puppies staring at you from the window – just keep walking.
Instead get your next best friend (canine or feline) from your local Shelter.
There are hundreds of dogs waiting for you right now to give them a second chance in life, to show them that humans really are moral, caring beings and not the heartless bastards they have known so far.
A TV show about this very subject – ‘Shelter Me‘ is about to air on PBS and I say – About time.
Maybe it will sway a few people to buying their next dog/cat/hamster from a Shelter and what can be a more heroic act then that?
