Angels on our shoulders.

My mother-in-law always said pets are “angels on our shoulders.”

I remember the first day my husband and I were introduced to Charlie Brown. We had just gotten married and moved into our new home. We are both huge animal lovers and we had both wanted to rescue a pit bull.

After doing our research on numerous organizations in Tulsa, we came across a pitbull rescue organization and after seeing Charlie Brown, we instantly fell in love. Charlie Brown had been abused by a previous owner before the heroes of the pitbull organization were able to rescue Charlie Brown and repair the injuries he had sustained. It’s been two years since Charlie Brown came home with us and he has made our lives better.

Different breeds of dogs serve a myriad of both functional and working relationships and let’s not forget the unconditional love they give to us.

In the wake of one of the most heartbreaking tragedies that was reported on recently, the death of Cecil the lion resonated with millions of animal lovers. Although he was taken from this world too soon, the team at Oxford University that was studying him has received more than $780,000 in donations.

Animals are one of the greatest things this world has to offer.

There are some amazing organizations here in Tulsa doing their part by helping rescue animals from dire conditions, and working hard to make sure animals are found and placed into loving homes.

Animals are our protectors and best friends. They never judge and love us no matter what.

If you are interested in adopting the amazing animals mentioned in this month’s magazine, we have provided the organization’s numbers for you to contact.

I’ll see you around the neighborhood!
