A pet?</p><p>It can certainly be difficult, and the process is not easy. Unfortunately, dealing with the pain has been all too familiar around my house lately.</p><p>Eight years ago while living in Joplin, Mo., we came across a little black-coated, white-footed ball of energy at the Joplin Humane Society. We had no idea what breed he was, but we knew he was very sweet and in desperate need of a home. I was convinced we needed to adopt him, and to persuade my wife only took introducing them.</p> Wed, 05 Dec 2012 16:08:06 +0000 Ryan Loyd 2795 at http://tpr.org Dealing With The Death Of A Pet Highlights Importance Of Adoption San Antonio Agencies Get New Ideas to Achieve No-Kill Status http://tpr.org/post/san-antonio-agencies-get-new-ideas-achieve-no-kill-status <p>Two weeks ago at the <a href="http://adltexas.org/" target="_blank">Animal Defense League</a>, 33 new residents were rescued from the City of San Antonio’s Animal Care Services.

Spokesman Hugo Vital said ADL actively works on getting more foster homes for pets.</p> Fri, 21 Sep 2012 21:42:13 +0000 Eileen Pace 286 at http://tpr.org San Antonio Agencies Get New Ideas to Achieve No-Kill Status
