It’s never truly quiet here. Present in the moment when sound abates, the ringing in our ears stand shadow to the din. Our voices petition a redress of grievances both past and present with a single remedy— a forever home.
It always seems cloudy here. The view barred and captive of routine. The vistas beyond sharpen when we close our eyes. Imagining— a forever home.
The air weighs heavily upon us here. A bouillabaisse of hope, fear, and uncertainty ferment the air and assault our noses. The smell of familiar people carried on the wind from— a forever home.
The taste of life is bland here. Love’s labor is practiced by people working to make our life a reason to celebrate, the flavor of— a forever home.
The touch of uncertainty is heavy here. Living things reaching out to each new visitor. A collective wish hangs on each stroke of fur— a forever home.
The greatest gift you can give any pet is a forever home. If you’re planning on bringing a new pet into your home, please visit your local animal shelter and provide a happy ending for pets and shelter workers everywhere.
