Pinky was very lucky. Thanks to the social media postings of Galveston County Shelter and her new moms' compassion, Pinky was not at the shelter very long. City shelters are crowded, and special needs animals don't do as well as cute, healthy puppies and kittens.
Goodreau and Cornelius had the resources to take care of Pinky. Goodreau urges people to consider the needs of the animal and try to compare your resources to their needs. Your heart is always in the right place when you want to help an animal, but your mind is your most useful tool when you decide to adopt.
There are plenty of animals from all types of backgrounds waiting to be adopted. If you are ready give a pet a forever home, check out Adopt-a-pet.com to get started.
