"Senator Obama and his family have said that, win or lose, they’re going to add a dog to their family after the election this November.
That’s a great idea. But I hope they decide to adopt one from their local shelter. Why? Because as long as people still buy their pets from pet stores and commercial breeders, millions of abandoned pets are killed in shelters across the country every year.
So here’s one issue that’s truly bi-partisan – one that we can all agree on. Let’s ask our national leaders always to adopt their pets from shelters, rather than buying them from pet stores.
Members of Best Friends Animal Society have started a petition to invite the Obama family to do just that. Whether you're a Democrat or a Republican, left-wing, right-wing or any other wing, you can make a bipartisan difference by signing our petition at ObamaFamilyDog.com, and encouraging all your friends and family to sign it, too.
Thanks for thinking about the nation’s homeless pets!"

Best Friends Animal Society Request on Behalf of Homeless Animals
Best Friends Animal Society is an organization I've supported for a number of years and I am a big fan of what they do. I got a request from them that I wanted to pass on because I'm a big believer in pet adoption. If you agree and you have just a minute, please support this petition:

Then one becomes resigned. Determination not to give in, and the sense of an impending shape keep one at it more than anything.
