Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Meet Wyler, a handsomely athletic and ridiculously funny Chocolate Lab. About 6 to 8 million cats and dogs enter shelters in the U.S. every year. And only half of them will ever get a chance at a new, loving home. To try and address this issue, the Humane Society of Utah are now producing a series of photobooth style portraits for their adoptable dogs. The hope is that these whimsical collections will convey the unique personality of each of their dogs. "This photo shoot is a much better way of presenting them as opposed to the sad dog behind the metal bars," photographer Guinnevere Shuster told the Daily Mail. And it's working - the photo series has seen adoption rates among the furry participants rise to more than 93%.
(I will be posting a couple of these over the next few days, I hope the Jigidi community will enjoy them.)

Will try to do it, I'm now only on battery power and have only a little time :( But I will definitely enjoy putting it together.

Thank you so much wolflady for your kind comment. I think I have found another person hiding their wings :) That learning tool of teaching children to understand and care for all creatures makes them better people that in-turn will teach that very lesson you have taught your family values. They will continue this life lesson way beyond our years here on earth making it a more kinder and compassionate planet. Thank you, for you being you!
Wishing you and your loved ones a glorious Easter!

I love all animals also & I can't even watch some of the commercials for ASPCA on TV, they
break your heart. Its nice to know that there are a lot of people out there like us that
love & appreciate all the animals. I have had pets since I was a small child & grew up
loving them & that is what I taught my kids & now the grandkids had children & they
are all kind to animals. Hope you have a great Easter also Oynot.

I love animals of all types. I think regardless of our ages we can still be surprised at what they teach us. Okay goingsilver, if you want to keep your wings hidden I understand but I know you are an angel :)

goingsilver

K~, I assure you I am no angel, lol! I am with you on encouraging youngsters to become involved with dogs. I love it when I take one of mine on home checks or street collections and see how kids interact with them.

oynot

Well I made them really small for the kiddos that may put puzzles together on Jigidi. And to boot, a little word of mouth that they may share with their friends to help out in animal shelters. Any and all ages are always welcome :)

i'm loving these puzzles. great idea k, and an greater cause. thank you.

oynot

WOW! Talk about a wonderful group of loving people, all of you brought a tear to these weary eyes.

I cannot agree with you more wolflady, our branches do intertwine. I, too go to the Humane Society very close to my house and drop off what I think may be of use. But I have to go and give a hug and a loving pet to the dogs and cats. However, I find it extemely difficult to see the ads on TV of animal cruelty. Thank you for being the person you are wolflady. This world needs more like you! Have a wonderful Easter!

My dear Fishes, you are so kind and loving. I know you have a beautiful soul. I can see you on that soap box too :) Wishing you and your loved ones a delightful Easter!

Dearest Lorna, can you do me a favor? Please post a picture of your back for me, I want to see your angel wings. The person you are is what gives hope to this some times cold, cruel world. I know your love is contagious, please spread it around! May you and your loved ones have a glorious Easter!

K~ I love your house rule and there is plenty of room on my soap box! I have had rescue dogs for 15 years now and currently have number 3 and 4 greyhounds. One - Tana, my avatar dog - was a real rescue case; when I first saw her (about 10 days after being rescued from a property with 41 other dogs) she was still the thinnest dog I had ever seen and was in an appalling condition with what I am convinced were healed cigarette burns, open sores and lacking a lot of her fur, and what she had was urine stained... She still has some emotional hang ups but is the sweetest dog. One of my hounds was a brilliant pet therapy dog; sadly the 2 I have now are not suitable. There are a lot of like minded people on jigidi I have found which is one of the reasons I have continued as an avid fan!

Fishes

This turns a negative situation for the dog into a positive hopeful experience for all.

wolflady

By the way I think that is a great idea, and this dog is a sweetheart..

I wish more people would take things seriously about adopting from a shelter. It breaks
my heart when I hear about people breeding their dogs & selling puppies. There are
so many dogs (and cats) out there that need a home. People have to stop breeding &
pay more attention to all the animals that are put down every year. Whenever I go
and drop things off at the shelter I can't even look because it upsets me. All my dogs
have come from shelters & I wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks for sharing this
story.

My dear friend Lorna, scrunch over on that soap box so I can stand with you. We use to show and breed miniature smooth and longhair dachshunds. I was on a rescue league of all purebred canines. Sadly, once these beautiful dogs put a few bucks, ribbons or trophies into their owners pockets or records they were not needed any longer in their eyes. So, I was their voice. I cannot begin to tell you how many "love-n-lick" connections I was proud to be apart of. We always had a standing rule in our house, with the pedigrees there always had to be room for one large mixed breed dog that was adopted from an animal shelter. The ones that most likely had no hopes of ever getting a home. But with the pack of dachshunds also that one big dog that would have been most likely put down made many visits (all trained in pet therapy) to visit nursing homes, my local VA Hospital and children in hospitals that entertained and gave unconditional love to those that needed a ray of sunshine and a smile. I know some people will not find these small puzzles series of interest to solve, but once again I feel the need to be that voice. It is a pleasure to stand with you, I hope others will.

Thanks for this K~ Nice idea and even better that it has improved the prospects of finding a forever home for the dogs in its care. I recently attended a conference for greyhound rescue volunteers (I do home visits and help at charity collections and events) and they were talking about the difference a photo which depicts the personality of a dog - tricky if the animal has mentally shut down - can make to its chances of attracting interest. People can be so fickle though; even the colour of a dog can put some off! Sorry - I'll climb down from my soap box but it is a subject close to my heart.....! Lorna
