staff of Lanyards Store enjoys helping the less fortunate animals in our
community. Over the years we've rescued, fixed and fostered quite a few animals.
We keep abandoned cats at our warehouse, whereas wild (feral) cats we catch, fix and
release back into their home outside. This is a little blog we wrote about it.
Currently in our warehouse, we have a room that has been converted to what we
call the "kitty condo". This is where we foster cats while we try to find nice
families with whom they can share their lives. We don't have space at the warehouse for dogs. However, a heroic member of
our staff fosters dogs from her home.
We're not just doing this to help the animals...
In fact we are certain beyond
any shadow of doubt that when you place a pet in a good home, you are benefiting people even
more than the animals. We know the cats we foster
are all truly wonderful companions, and each one will give back to it's owner(s) much
more than they take. In fact, it's proven scientifically that people who own pets live longer
and healthier lives.
