But as it turns out, not every dog rescue can be trusted. Why? Well, because some of them aren’t rescues at all! (Click title to read more!)

Hi everyone, it’s Mabel! As you know, Molly and I believe the bond between a human and dog is something unbreakable. Molly always tells me that I’ve changed her life in so many ways, especially since I’ve been there for all the big moments she experienced so far. So, when I heard about a fellow …

Easter is coming up, and that means bunnies are receiving lots of love! Or at least, that’s how it seems. Spring is a big season for buying and adopting bunnies, which makes sense thanks to the famous Easter bunny. But while the increased demand for bunnies sounds like it should be a good thing, there are sadly a lot of downsides to it. (Click title to read more!)

When humans see an adorable animal, they always seem to want one of their own. Sometimes, they’re just joking, but many times they’re serious Sadly, many families will bring an animal home just because they think they’re cute. Of course, every dog is cute, but that doesn’t mean you should take them all home. There’s much more to pets than just a pretty face, so be patient when choosing a new family member.

When most people think of a rescue dog, they think of a dog that was adopted from a shelter or animal rescue. And I’ve made it very clear on this blog that I’m not happy about people buying puppies from pet stores and breeders. But what about dogs that are re-homed? If someone is giving away their dog to another family, is that dog then considered a rescue? There are lots of opinions on this, but I’ll share what I think about it. (Click title to read more!)

As it turns out, animals on Craigslist could be in danger in more ways than you’d expect. Not only are many Craigslist pets from puppy mills, but many cruel people buy online animals too. So, should Craigslist stop pet sales and what should pet parents do instead? (Click title to read more!)

Sadly, we live in a world where humans are quick to judge. Too often, people are seeing the worst in things rather than looking on the positive side. In most cases, I can look past it, but as a rescue dog, it hurts to see people be rude to dog rescues and shelters. Some people get mad if a rescue doesn’t communicate well enough or respond to messages fast enough. Others are upset about adoption requirements being too strict. I know these things can be annoying at times, but I want to explain why I think people should be more lenient with these organizations. (Click title to read more!)

Molly and I love all dog breeds. They’re all equally adorable, but not everyone sees it that way. Many humans become so obsessed with a certain breed that they don’t want to even consider other breeds. And oftentimes, these breeds are the ones that breeding is the most dangerous and inhumane for. So, we’ve compiled a list of dog breeds that you should avoid getting from a breeder more than others. (Click title to read more!)

Today Molly came across some Facebook comments that drove her crazy. As some of you may know, she volunteers for an organization called Bailing Out Benji, who spreads awareness about puppy mills. Recently, they shared a post saying something along the lines of “puppy mills exist because the public keeps funding them.” For anyone who knows the sad reality of the puppy industry, this is a very true statement. Yet, Molly was surprised to see many comments disagreeing with what the organization stands for. (Click title to read more!)
