A Sad Time Has Come For A Florida Animal Shelter

It’s bad enough when animal’s shelters just kill the pets that people bring in due to not being adopted. But an animal shelter called the Florida East Coast Humane Society has just closed their doors after being in business for the last sixty five years.

They weren’t just any kind of shelter they were a no kill shelter that took the time to help give the abandon pets a chance to a new life in a new home. So due to running out of funds they have shut their doors.

Executive Director Cindy Bishop said: the goal for the shelter which used to be named the St. Augustine Humane Society is to reopen in six to eight months after a fundraising campaign.
Only time will tell if there are enough people that make a donation to help fund their cost of operation.

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.
2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.
3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.
4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainments, but I have only you.
5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.
6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.
7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.
8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.
9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.
10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.
