Volunteering... and stuff

I posted a little while ago about getting inspired, and although I'm still inspired to do photography, blogging and those things I love; I've been looking into volunteering. Mostly with animals, because I have a real passion for them and it just breaks my heart to see so many put down. I read some heart-wrenching poems last night, but this one brought tears to my eyes and I wanted to share it.


We used to play together
You called me your best friend
You said you’d be there for me
Until the very end
What happened to make you leave me?
What made you say goodbye?
Why did you leave me here?
Why can’t you tell me why?

Was it because I chewed your shoes?
Or was it because I pulled on the leash?
Was it because I grew too quickly?
Or was it because I ate the quiche

So now I lie here waiting
For you to come my way
I hope you do come soon
For this is my last day
No one wants a dog
As big and old as me
Do I deserve a home
What I’ve done wrong, I cannot see

So when the lady comes
To take me from my stall
I promise to follow gently
I will not fight at all
And when she puts me on the table
And inserts the cold syringe
I will not even cry
And I will not even cringe
Because then I will be happy
I will be in a better place
The cruel people in this world
I will no longer have to face
But before I go, I must ask
Just one last question…


Poem from here.

It's so brutal and honest, and I hope I haven't upset anyone - I just think it's important to remember that when you buy an animal you have to fully commit to it and remember: they are an animal, and they're relying on you to look after them. If you don't want them chewing your shoes, don't let them play with an old pair (I'm guilty of this!).

So it inspired me to try and help; I've emailed a few pounds and offered to be a foster carer at a few places, so I hope I can do some good.

I'm really looking forward to doing something though, and help out where I can - I'll let you know how I go! :)

Happy Tuesday!
