The image ^ made me laugh, but I didn’t know exactly what it was about. So I found the video, referenced above…and it quickly made me sad and sadder and think about adopting another dog.

Please watch and share up, if so inspired:

    this is hysterical. Everytime I see this ad I say (no joke), "Fucking Sarah Maclachlan. You are ruining my day."

    I have worked with several rescues. I have seen how hard it is out there. god bless sarah for brining it to our attention…may she continue to ruin days until we make real change. for animals, children, the poor and sick for anyone that cannot speak for themselves.

    I have fostered several dogs through bcspca and it is positive experience to see them placed in happy loving homes after abuse. love sarah for this. cynicism in this pic above is disturbing. don't let it "ruin your day" take action and make it a fabulous day for the animal you rescue and improve the lives of the people who adopt.

    Hi i would like to get sara's email address or phone num. she talks about animal abuse, well my poor puppy just died from a bath from hartz flea and tick shampoo, this is animal abuse from a large company. We have got to stop hartz now, my dog was having seizures and he went blind

      I've heard about that happening to a cat. Luckily they spotted something wrong and washed and washed and washed him (poor little guy). He was pretty sick for a while, but he made it. I will NOT use that crap on my pets. A natural diet and brewer's yeast do wonders.

    Bravo to her. She didn't turn away from a hard truth. I commend her, and those to do the good work.
