Animals Are PeopleToo

Hey guys! How have you been? The weather is hot and humid these days. So continue giving water and food to community animals. Do remember… Rains don't help our four-legged friends too much with all those water-borne diseases causing stomach infections and food rotting sooner than usual. So do ensure that you keep clean water and food every day for our community animals. Like I've said before… Compassion goes a long way in defining our lives! Here's a new message from my pet Ginger and I… Happiness surely is a four-legged being! #Kindnesscounts #onekindact #goodkarma #loveanimals
