Many of us greatly value our pets. We feed them, we care for them and for most of us–they are part of our family. But while we take of our furry friends at home, there are millions of dogs and cats in shelters nationwide that are not as fortunate. Many are put down because of lack of space. Victoria Doramus is a New York resident who is against the killing of animals in our shelters. She believes that more should be done to help animals that are not adopted.
According to Affiliate Dork, Victoria is part of Best Friend’s Animal Society, an organization that was created in order to provide space for animals when there is none left in the shelter. The organization has a facility where the animals are kept can hold that can hold up to 1600 animals at one time. It was designed to provide care to dogs and cats of all ages. It takes in animals that are sick and gives them time to recover. This can be useful if an animal has an illness or injury that hurts its chance of being adopted.
The non-profit group also provides care for older pets and cares for them if they end up needing a place to stay. This can happen if someone has an older dog or cat that they can no longer care for, or if there are animals that were given up when their owner no longer wanted to keep them. The organization runs such as fundraisers and adoption campaigns in order to gain more attention from the public about what can be done.
Victoria Doramus (@victoriadoramus) believes that animals are similar to people because they need love and care in order to not feel survive. She continues to advocate for Best Friend’s Animal Society and is proud to be part of an organization that helps to provide care for animals who would have otherwise been neglected.
