Not to late to join Bloggers for Dog Rescue

On July 15th Be the Change for Animals is a global event, a mindful public notice to make life better for animals. The efforts to encourage pet adoption lingers on my mind. The family spent our weekend rebuilding 200 feet  of animal friendly cross fencing for our 5 forever goats. Yes, goats are adoptable too. My focus and passion to help organizations share “our” message rescues make the best pets.

A blogger and blog reader, please help us publicize Bloggers Unite for Dog Rescue, a special online global event held on July 23, 2012 stressing the importance of dog adoption. is proud to partner with Blog CatalogDog Rescue Success and YOU to harness a global online community to help save the lives of dogs in need.

Darby, our rescued dog was a classic case of pup gone wrong, he ended up in the city pound, and months in a foster home waiting for his forever home. A wonderful neutered male with the kindest disposition and loyality to our family and farm animals. I can only keep sharing with others his story to encourage dog adoptions.

 Here is his book trailer

See you on the 23rd of July for Bloggers for Dog Rescue !!

    Martha, just found this posting on LI. Love this trailer and I am so impressed with what you are doing to speak out for dog adoption. I also have 4 rescued dogs of my own, so I’m with you there!! Is this a children’s book?

    • 5. Martha Steward  |  July 17, 2012 at 11:19 am

      Yes, Darby’s Story is for all age groups : ) Four wonderful happy dogs (((HUGS))) thank you for providing forever homes !!

    Count me in. I have a rescued kitten who turned out to be a Maine Coon cat. He has been such a joy and so embodies the reason to embrace adoptiions. 🙂

    We’ve always adopted all our dogs and cats from our local AHS and thanks for doing all you’re doing!

      Sandra Thank you for providing a wonderful forever home !

    Great post, Martha. I’m a cat person myself, but we have neighbours who have adopted several dogs via the humans society and found them to e terrific pets. How wonderful it is when we can save an animal in need of a good home. We adopted our last cat – or should I say HE adopted US – as he was a stray that just wouldn’t say no for an answer. That was 14 years ago, and he’s turned out to be one of the best cats we ever had. Pet love all the way.

      Pet Love Great and small : ) Thank you!

    Thanks Martha for writing Darby’s Story and for blogging for Be the Change for Animals.

    Thanks Martha for writing “Darby’s Story” and blogging for dog rescue. You are a sweetheart.

  • 14. Lorie Huston  |  July 17, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    Hi, Martha. Darby’s story is an encouraging one. Thanks for sharing it with us. My rescues are all cats, six of them. But I find your mention of forever goats interesting. We don’t often think of these animals as needing forever homes but you’re right. They do just as much as dogs and cats. I have another friend who keeps goats as well and another who keeps a pig as a pet. I’ve even spoken to a couple of pet bloggers who keep capybaras as pets. Anyway, I’ll “see” you on the 23rd!

    • 15. Martha Steward  |  July 17, 2012 at 4:10 pm

      Lorie Thank you for stopping by and the support for the 23rd. Happy ro read your on the cats forever homes list Bangle Bear will be pleased to know : )

  • 16. Karen  |  July 18, 2012 at 5:01 am

    What a great post and your dog is so cute! I’ve passed this post along to some friends as well!

    On a side note, I didn’t realize that goats are adoptable! I wonder how my beagle would like a goat? Though, I may need a bigger yard!

    Take care and thank you for sharing!

    • 17. Martha Steward  |  July 18, 2012 at 8:28 am

      Karen, Thank you for stopping by and sharing, yes even farm animals need forever homes, that includes the great and small : )

  • 18. Kim Clune  |  July 18, 2012 at 6:05 am

    Hi Martha,

    Forever goats. Love it! I have forever birds and would take on any animal in need if the inn wasn’t already full with a Newf, hound, 2 precocious cats and 3 rescue birds.

    I saw your note on the BTC pag and I’ll be happy to add your post to the link list today. See you on the 23rd!!

    Thanks for taking part and Blogging the Change for Animals!

      Morning Kim, Thank you for stopping by and the link list. Darby’s mission through his pages to encourage humans to adopt rescues of all shape and size for “we” make great pets : )

  • 20. Raani York  |  July 18, 2012 at 1:12 pm

    What a REALLY great trailer – and what a wonderful blog post. Besides: Darby is a cutie!! Well done!! 🙂

  • 22. Alan Gray  |  July 20, 2012 at 4:27 am

    Nice story, Martha. Its a fact of life that some people just shouldn’t have dogs, but they get one for the kids and then discover it takes more effort than they are prepared to give, or someone in the family has an allergy they can’t control. Darby is lucky to have you.

    • 23. Martha Steward  |  July 20, 2012 at 11:52 am

      Thank you Alan for stopping by. You made a good point. Families need to know how to select the best suitable dog for the family. For those will allergy dogs with hair not fur work best~ poodles come to mind. Have a great day.

    So happy to have found your blog! All of my pets have come from shelters. I was in Greece two years ago and the stray cat and dog population is quite shocking to say the least. I may foster dogs someday, but am currently in a rental.

    • 25. Martha Steward  |  July 23, 2012 at 7:59 am

      Jeri Thank you for stopping by, Your concern is a global problem, educational programs encouraging spay and neutering can help the quality of animal life.
