This June, I will be participating in the inaugural ASPCA Virtual 5K! I am excited to be participating and honored to be raising the awareness and the much needed funding to support the ASPCA's programs. Your donation will help the ASPCA provide life-saving programs and services to millions of animals nationwide. The ASPCA is very important to me and I appreciate your help as we fight to give abused and homeless animals a second chance at life.
Ever since I was little, I have loved all animals. I was lucky to have a four-legged pal when I was a child. She was a fawn Great Dane that my mom adopted just before I was born, and I was lucky to have had her watch over me and be my friend when I was very little. My grandparents also had dogs throughout my life, much smaller than my Great Dane, but still wonderful four legged friends none-the-less. That leads me to now. Recently, my husband and I lost our dog Lucy (pictured here). She came from a pupply mill, so we gave her the best life she could have ever imagined. Three months after she passed we adopted one shelter dog and six months later we adopted a second shelter dog. They keep us busy, and keep us laughing! We cannot every live without a dog in our home and in our lives. They truly have our hearts.
My love for animals goes back to day one, when unknowingly, I had this huge dog as my fierce protector who was amazed at every move I made. Because of this admiration for nature and life, I am a vegan. Animals are amazing, and they do not deserve to be abused, neglected, or exploited in any way. It is why I speak out against all animal abuse and it is why I am participating in the ASPCA's Virtual 5K to help raise awareness (and dollars!). Animals deserve better, please support me by making a donation and help me make a positive impact in the lives of animals!
