    Where did you get your pets?

    We rescued Autumn from a mill and we got Pepper from a breeder. Sonny came from a farm. Depot and the roachies came from a pet store.

    All three of my dogs came from the shelter, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    perky and Ripley are from the shelter, happy and Blair are from the same breeder, Misty is from a cattle ranch. the gerbils came from a pet store, the rabbit from the shleter, one of my guinea pigs from a petstore, the rest bred myself(well not on purpose, the first litter we though friskit was a girl, we were wrong and he bred to Missy, I kept pestering my mom that we needed to seperate them NOW but my mom refused to listen she figered there was lots of time to put a new cage together, then Missy had the babys when we were not home, and Friskit bred her again immediently afterward, that is when my mom came to her sences.

    I found Kirby while browsing the internet in the classifed adds. someone put him up for sale becasue the owner was moving a place that didnt allow dogs.

    can you belive he was only $52.00?

    My very first cat, Mollie Rose (11 years old) I got at the Bill Wilson House in East Dorset, Vermont. (Bill Wilson is the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous).

    MooShoo and Shortie were rescued from BAAAAAD breeders!

    Maya Laquita Lynn was rescued from the San Juan Airport in Puerto Rico, along with her mama and brother.

    LilEli I got from Ramanth (Kimmy) who has LilEli's brother and mama.

    Parker, my Meezer mix, I recently rescued from the Allen Park Animal Shelter, 2 days before she was scheduled to be killed.

    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02
    Mollie Rose, you were there for me through good times and in bad, from the beginning.Your passing will leave a hole in my heart.We will be together "One Fine Day". 1994-2009
    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
    Maya Linn, my heart is broken. The day your beautiful blue eyes went blind was the worst day of my life.I only wish I could've done something.I'll miss your "premium" purr and our little "conversations". 1997-2013 See you again "ONE FINE DAY"

    I was just curious. I'd hope nobody would start any troube if somebody purchased from a pet store. It can't be undone. One of the purposes of this forum is to teach owners about places like mills and bybs and such.
