Hi! My name is Roni and I am a huge animal lover. I decided to become a part of the Dodo community because of this. My avatar - and the incredibly handsome feline above - is my 18 year old cat Sheldon. I was 14 years old when my family moved to a place where we were finally allowed to have a cat, and we adopted him and welcomed him to his forever home with us 8 weeks later. Shel is more than our pet, he's an important member of our family. I cannot express how much he has added to our lives and how unbelievably wonderful it is to know the love of an animal.
Sheldon is very lucky - he has always had a happy life and people who love him dearly - but not all animals are so lucky. The amount of mistreatment, downright cruelty and denial of rights that so many animals face is absolutely staggering. I want and hope I can help make a difference in the lives of animals, and I think the Dodo is a great place to start. :)
