I was a bit suprised with my intial reaction to the simple news story. It was instant outrage. I am angry and I truly cannot get it out of my head!
Americans spend $480,000,000 on pet costumes. There are people in America who are homeless, starving and in need of medical help and we spend that much on costumes for pets? Do pets even like to wear costumes?
What on earth has happened to our humanity? Do we truly believe that dressing up our pets is more important than helping our fellowmen?
I am not suggesting taking food, water and comfort from pets, but do they NEED a costume.
So I challenge everyone who dressed up their pet, to donate double the money they spent on that to a local charity that helps humans. Let’s get our priorities straightened out.
Are you dressing up your pet?
