Welcome to Taxi dog's blog

To all our new readers from Sacramento Connect Extranet welcome.

Just a word of explanation then please take some time and explore. Yes, we're located in Florida which is a lot like CA but with more beaches and alas, fewer vineyards. To be more accurate, we're in Tampa Bay with all its rich heritage of spanish exploration, Cuban cigars and people who get excited about their pets; like Sacramento we have lots and lots of dogs here.

I work for For Paws Hospice, at least that's who pays the bills ...

Homeless

Posted by Taxi dog on Thursday, October 22, 2009, In : Human-animal bond 

Homelessness hurts more than just people and families, it hurts their pets and it hurts society. Homelessness is the obscenity of our time and our shame if we do nothing.



Because most shelters today do not allow pets many homeless elect to remain homeless rather than abandon their companions.

One estimate puts the number of homeless in America at 3.5 million; no one knows how many pets live with their owners on the street but in 2007 nearly 40% of all U.S. households owned at least on...
