I support rescue and rehabilitation 100%. The number of animals that have passed through me to forever homes or eternity in Heaven is TNTC*, as we say in veterinary medicine.
I have received TONS of messages about 'cross posting'...and many ask me to 'show this to Tad's friends', 'share this on Tad's wall', 'can you repost this', 'would you share this page'...in the beginning, I was even approached to 'make a page' for someone's dog because maybe they could get money, too. That is NOT why this was done...that is NOT what I want...I will NOT support that.
I posted a month or so, maybe more, about being cautious. There are a lot of scammers out there, and animal lovers are easy prey. It sucks, but it's true. I have been very particular about the stories I share, and they're usually people that I know more closely.
However, after a long talk with the doctor today...I've decided to no longer cross post for other animals. Before you get enraged, please let me explain...
I have a gut feeling that a story I shared at one point in time is...well, it hits me the wrong way. I just feel uncomfortable about it. I don't like it, and I don't like 'sharing' such a thing that sends a thousand people over to either donate their money, donate their support, break their hearts, cry their tears, and then it turns out to be...false. I just...I don't like that responsibility. I always advise people to be cautious, but I feel like if I 'recommend' a page, then some feel that it's a genuine page because I 'recommended' it...in some cases, that may be true. But, I just...I don't feel right when I don't 'know'.
Tad's page is available for other to cross-post and such, but personally, I don't want to do it. I am too worried about setting up those who have done so much for Tad and me for disaster.
I hope that you understand my decision. I just don't 'know' who is behind that Facebook profile, and I don't feel comfortable referring you all all over the place.
I want Tad's page to be about Tad...to give hope, inspiration, to bring light to this cruel world full of so many who need to see there is a chance...
Thank you for your understanding...
