Fund for Animals founder and author Cleveland Amory wrote a book called “The Cat Who Came for Christmas” wherein he humorously relates his life with Polar Bear a stray white cat that he rescued from off the streets of New York. The last paragraph reads
“…I hope even more that those of you who have never had an animal will hie yourselves to the nearest shelter, and adopt one. If you do, you will surely find that that animal will give you, every day of his or her life, not only joy and companionship, but also that very special kind of love which can be understood…only by those fortunate enough ever to have been owned by one.”
A second noteworthy quote is from a sign posted beside the entrance to the Black Beauty Ranch – an animal sanctuary established by the Fund for Animals:
“I have nothing to fear. And here my story ends.
My troubles are all over, and I am at home.”
– Last line from Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
As best expressed by Amory and Sewell, we continue to hope for a guardian and a good home for every shelter animal and stray still out there.
Please visit the Philippine Animal Welfare Society Adoption Page if you are interested in adopting one of the adorable cats or dogs from the PAWS Shelter.
