Farewell Post: This Is NOT Goodbye!

Hi there! I want to thank all of my local fellow animal lovers who have followed me on this blog journey through my semester. I’ve learned a lot about something I was already passionate about and loved every minute of it, even if some of it was hard to write. I learned about so many important issues in the world for animals such as puppy mills, factory farming and even the bear hunt that hits so close to home. But I also got to write about good news like NJ becoming the first state to ban declawing and rescue stories such as Rocky’s. I was happy to see all of the rescues around my area that I was unaware of. I’ve also learned how truly dedicated people are to saving animals. Once again, rescues do not make ANY money. Everything they do for these animals such as building land for them, treating them and more comes out of their pocket. And I appreciate this as much as the animal they’re saving does.

I want to tell you all that this is not goodbye. The treatment of animals is so important to me and I want to continue spreading awareness and keeping all of you updated and hopefully inspired!

Welcome, human friends!

Hello, everyone! Welcome to Animal Compassion Continues. If you’re reading this, I assume you may love animals more than human beings, like myself. I’ve always been an animal lover, but just started educating myself on animal cruelty along with progressive ways to change these issues for about two years now.

Here you will find animal rescue stories including interviews with their rescuers (often times a rescuer is involved with animal rights because of a life-changing experience), animal welfare and advocacy, a widespread of animal organizations in the area, shelters and adoption and ultimately how one can help lessen the suffering of animals specifically in New Jersey. Animals — all types including cows, pigs, goats and even your typical “pet” animals such as dogs and cats — are in need of rescue and a new life we are able to give them. I want to include photographs that capture how lovable animals are (some who can’t get adopted or are returned to the shelter) and even the kind of photographs people turn their heads away from like the deplorable conditions animals are in when they are rescued.

I know a lot of people who are passionate about animals but do not get involved or simply think that is enough. My hope is that my content will move animal lovers to reach out or to open the eyes of people who did not know the extremes of animal issues around the world or even in their hometowns. I want my content to spread awareness and inspire all of you to give back the compassion that animals give us by instinct.
