Quarantine doesn't look so bad when you're beleaguered "Inn"keepers... OgoPogo lounges in his stall with Sergeant Finkelstein in the background. . Last night during dinners (with fences between everyone and strict supervision) I uttered words I never thought possible. "GET AWAY FROM THE LADIES, OGOPOGO... THIS ISN'T HAPPY HOUR!" Remember we have FIVE intact, sexually mature males living in our barn. The vet at OSU wants them fed and healthier before we sedate anyone for neutering. It's considered an 'elective' procedure😕... so we have STRICT space between males and females right now in hopes that the three females are not already pregnant🤞The males are starting to feel better and they're less focused on SURVIVAL, so there's been a little more interest in the one stall full of pretty ladies💃I had to say last night, "Sorry, OgoPogo... no sex in quarantine." Deep sigh... we often go to bed wondering how we ever got here. . . #oddmaninn #ogopogo #animalrescue #animalrights #rescuepigs #pigsofinstagram #friendsnotfood #someonenotsomething #bestfriendsanimalsociety #SaveThemAll #aspca #compassion #quarantinewoes #vegan #vegansofinstagram #govegan #adoptdontshop #mercyforanimals #thehumaneleague #everyonedeservesaforeverhome

Rizzo, one of two sweet dogs that are still with us from Hurricane Harvey, LOVES her people! While she's been the best office mate on the planet (seriously — the best!), she would really love a home. Her adoption fee is WAIVED thanks to @bobs_skechers . Meet Rizzo at the adoption center! #rizzo #harveydog #bfasatl #bfatl #bestfriendsanimalsociety

It’s fitting that #nationalloveyourpetday falls on a day where I’ve been regularly monitoring Kodah’s 💩, wiping her butt and force-feeding her pumpkin. Dogs are adorable ... and disgusting. And 100% worth it. #doglife

Esmeralda & Tobi don't mind the snow and cold temps, but we still put them in a warm, dry stall at night with lots of good hay to eat. These two are losing weight and doing great since we've eliminated the large amounts of grain they had in their diet. We trimmed their hooves last week, and Esmeralda gets a little arthritis meds every day. . #oddmaninn #tobi #esmeralda #sheepofinstagram #rescuesheep #friendsnotfood #someonenotsomething #animalrights #animalrescue #compassion #compassionateliving #bestfriendsanimalsociety #SaveThemAll #aspca #vegansofig #govegan #veganislove #mercyforanimals #befairbevegan #thehumaneleague #adoptdontshop #everyonedeservesaforeverhome

"It’s not easy to think about the number of pets killed every year in our country’s animal shelters. It’s even harder to hear that many of these dogs and cats die not because they are sick or beyond rehabilitation or have behavior issues, but simply because shelters don’t have the resources to accommodate them. Not everyone agrees that no-kill is the answer, with some citing instances in which shelters have tried and failed to become no-kill. Another argument is that some shelters achieve no-kill status by only accepting what they consider adoptable animals. This definition of “adoptable” may exclude seniors, pets with treatable illnesses or animals with special needs. These naysayers say that this practice passes on to other shelters the challenge of caring for those “unadoptable” animals. At Best Friends, we don’t believe that no-kill is based on what an individual shelter may or may not do. Rather, no-kill is achieved when an entire community, including all shelters, is saving at least 90 percent of pets in shelters. While there may be differences of opinion about the best way to end animal homelessness, Best Friends believes the ultimate goal for every animal lover, rescuer, advocate and shelter employee should be to see a day when no healthy or treatable animal is killed for lack of a home." - by @bestfriendsanimalsociety ____________________________________________________________________ Lets pledge and help the poor homeless animals!

Meet my current foster kitties Rosie Kramer (right) and Lil’ Diva 💁🏼‍♀️ (left). These two are a bonded pair that are about 11-12 years old. They are so petite! Together probably only weigh about 15 lbs. Even though their coloring is different they have the same little square face! These two are most likely litter mates that have been together their entire lives. They get along just fine with other cats but it’s pretty funny to see Lil’ Diva “protect” Rosie with a boop if the other cats get to close. 😂 These two are available fur adoption through @utahanimals and would love to find a soft cuddly forever home. They would be a good fit for almost any household as they would do fine with other cats, cat savvy dogs and gentle children. Feel free to tag a friend who needs not one, but two cats! 🤣 Photo credit @valorphoto #uta#utahals #utahpets #uaac #utahanimaladoptioncenter #adoptdontshop #adoptaseniorcat #slc #utah #kitties #catsofinstagram #utahadoptables #nkut #bestfriends #bestfriendsanimalsociety #spayandneuteryourpetsplease

🤫 Shhh don’t tell Gren but I fell in love with this cutie this weekend. 🐾🌲 Mr. Forest Whitaker was my handsome escort on our monthly hike for #NKLA. He was so loving, full of energy even at 10 years young, and has literally the softest fur in the whole wide world. What an angel, he better find his furever home soon or I’m going to cry. 🐶😭💕✨ #adoptdontshop #rescuedog #shelterdog #bes#bestfriendsanimalsociety #bestfriends #bringhappinesshome #rescuedogsrock #anangel #seniorpups #seniordog #mutt #halfamazinghalfterrific #forestwhitaker #dog #dogsofinstagram #hike #socal #losangeles #animalshelter #loveinphysicalform #blessdogs

❤️Hooper❤️ This handsome bro is doing GREAT as an indoor pig. He's losing weight, eating his veggies, he's made pig best-ies with Priscilla, and he's learning to navigate in spite of not being able to see yet. He allows snuggles occasionally... and doesn't lunge and bite as often☺️.... and he's actually a real cutie with those rolls and all❤️ . #oddmaninn #hooper #rescuepig #pigsofinstagram #animalrights #animalrescue #compassion #mercyforanimals #bestfriendsanimalsociety #SaveThemAll #aspca #adoptdontshop #minipig #minipigsofinstagram #everyonedeservesaforeverhome

(swipe left) Puffet was my sleepover buddy at @bestfriendsanimalsociety and I can’t believe that this was only her 2nd sleepover ever. And I can’t believe she has been at the sanctuary for over a year and not adopted yet 😢 She is as sweet as she is stunning! A purring lovebug 💕 Please inquire about adopting her! #ado#adopta> #adoptdontshop #bfas #cat #catsofinstagram #adopt #rescued #animalsanctuary #sanctuary #animallover #catlover #upforadoption #kanab #utah #bestfriendsanimalsociety #volunteer #vacation #volunteercation

Even a cold day can feel warm when looked at from a position of gratitude. For framing the senior gentleman who recently got adopted in the window of an oncoming wintry day tosses about in minds the truth of huddling under porches while falling snow powers the sad meows of hungry bellies. And to know this moment fully and with gratitude is to bear the burden of the hardship he endured to get here (adopted then brought back, twice; a history of a former life before these unknown) but as ashes of fire transform barren destruction to growth so does compassion bloom from letting in sadness. For darkness of sad times burns, and hungry bellies and sad meows touch in scary ways, but the magic of fire is to fertilize growth until we weave ourselves anew. Where nothing else can be known but heart-exploding gratitude for the fullness of experience begetting how magical it is to witness the moment a cat finally gets to feel safe in a window. #cat #seniorcat #cats #gratitude #catsofinstagram #catstagram #cats_of_instagram #pet#pet> #adoptdontshop #petsitter #pet #saltlakecity #bestfriendsanimalsociety (Bruno; fifteen year old Bruno was adopted twice and brought back, then fostered by a family who eventually came to feel they couldn’t bear to see him experience the vulnerability of having to leave another home after which he became a “failed foster” (in other words they adopted him). He has all the special considerations of senior cats like kidney issues, etc. and all of the stories held within eyes that speak to having themselves seen the fire but you just have to thank the universe that sometimes things work out. Congratulations to Bruno and to all of us that now get to see Bruno framed within this window, safely inside a home fed with warmth, caring, and the transformative gratitude that comes from the benevolence of his new family’s empathy. May we all power ourselves to such feelings).
