i just want to share my experience and testimony here.. i was married for 7years to my husband and all of a sudden, another woman came into the picture he started hating me and he was abusive. but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost then he filed for divorce my whole life was turning apart and i didn’t know what to do he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids so someone told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me to a spell caster so i decided to try it reluctantly. although i didn’t believe in all those things then when he did the special prayers and spell, after 2days, my husband came back and was pleading he had realized his mistakes I just couldn’t believe it anyway we are back together now and we are happy in case anyone needs this man, his email address his spells is for a better life.

I am fortunate in that I can marry my love of animal rescues and my technology career. I just launched a new program and I want to provide it at no charge to California rescues. Can you help spread the word please?

We lost our dear dog/child/friend in Jan. from a brain infection and I broke down went to pet finders as great as they are this one I Won't name here told me this dog was nutered and he is not but he already is in love here and with our family as we are him. He already has made us laugh and has shown the love of having a safe loving home. Just a new lession make sure when online they claim something you have to make sure its all true specially when you hand over the money they claim. I am number one to want to save a animal and again he has won our hearts big time but I just don't ask for the people on pet finder to lie and would love if you support them you wouldn't want them to do also I will give the name to you if you ask and fwd the page I saved about him.

Hi Ellen, I’m Brittany, a sixteen year old from Pittsburgh, PA and I have seen the grace of innocence. I have met angels but not the kind you would imagine. They have no fluffy, feathery wings but they do wear a fluffy coat. They are not clothed in shades of white but they have specks of white mixed in with their orange and black fur. They are as pure as fresh snow. They can tell no lies nor commit no crime. They do what they have to do in order to survive and stick together. I have had since august of this year three stray male cats living on my porch; one black and white cat that I have come to call Moo for his color and two orange and white cats that I have rightfully named Einstein for his brains and Courage for his courageous attitude. My family and I have feed them and cared for them everyday since. They are in truth little miracles despite their situation. They are the friendliest cats I have ever known. Each day they have made it a habit to paw at our windows, walk us to our cars, greet me when I get home from school and follow me as I take my dog for walks. My family and I have repeatedly tried to find these three cats a home with no luck. I am worried for their safety, winter is coming and the streets of my neighborhood are no place for innocence. I am scared for them and writing you today to express that fear and hoping you can change it. I am old enough to no that there is no Santa Clause but wise enough to know there are people out there that embody Saint Nick’s kind soul. For Christmas this year I could care less about presents all I desire is a place that Moo, Einstein and Courage can call home with owners who will care and love them as much as I do. So please Ellen help me find these strays a home. Innocence should be nurtured. The strays of this world should be loved. Angels should be cared for and no one on Christmas should go without a home.

We adopted our first family pet from an animal shelter. Shelby (a beagle/australian shepard mix) was with us for many years. She is dearly missed. We adopted, again, from Save A Pet shelter in Grayslake in 2001. Eddie is adorable and luckily, is still with us. He is approximately 13 years old. We arent sure what breed mix he is. I describe him as a golden retriever that was shrunk to 35 pounds. (I had to stop saying that to the kids in the neighborhood for fear they might try to "shrink" their dogs!) Dogs should not be bred and sold until all dogs in shelters have been adopted!
