As I'm just getting into the hobby I'm trying to limit myself as far as purchases go... I had saved up some spare money over the past month and decided I would spend it on a new game.
Then, while starting my day today I came across this: http://www.hopeforpaws.org The level of genuine care, the slow, gentle movements to help these creatures feel safe before taking them away from harm... it just melted my heart.
I gave up my $25 and don't have a bit of regret over it. People like this will do good with the money. If you're like me and have a monthly budget you've given yourself, have a look at some of their great rescues and think about donating to them (or any other noteworthy cause) this month in lieu of your regular indulgence.
