OMG!  I do this every single time!  Suki probably thinks I’m nuts running around like a crazy woman trying to find the remote while covering my eyes with my hand, so I don’t accidentally see any part of the commercial, all while screaming “where’s the remote”.  I cry and am depressed the rest of the day if I see it.  I can’t even listen to the song on the radio and deleted it from my iPod.

I know people need to be aware of the animals in shelters and the help they need.  I freely donate to ASPCA and other animal rescues.  I’m looking into volunteering at a local no-kill shelter to provide human interaction for the dogs and cats.  It’s not that I’m in denial of their situation…that commercial is just way too much!  I want to adopt every animal on there, but can’t, so end up feeling like a horrible person for not saving them.  How about we show the animals playing and highlight their loving personalities rather than sad faces to encourage adoptions?

  1. Me, too, exactly the same, except I hold my breath, too, for some reason. It’s needed for those who just don’t know, so I can’t begrudge them the air time. But, I already know and help, and have adopted from the shelter, etc; I just can’t stand to see one image in that commercial. I felt so guilty about that; I was relieved to read your post. So, I’m not alone!
