“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ― Mahatma Gandhi
I became aware of Ben via my facebook newsfeed. He’s a handsome boy that has had a tough life. He has ligament damage in both of his knees and the people at the shelter made mention in the post that this may be why he was picked up as a stray. Sometimes people think that a puppy will be a cute addition to their family only to learn that they grow up to become dogs. Like a perpetual 4 year old, a dog is a responsibility people aren’t always ready to take on, especially if there is a medical issue. So sometimes it means they’re abandoned. No one can know for sure if that’s what happened with Ben, but based on his behaviour when he was picked up it really could be. So, Ben needs surgery and the Oxford County Animal Rescue Group is trying to fundraise enough money so Ben can be given a long and happy life. I couldn’t resist, I donated.
