My grandma Jewel was an animal lover. When neighborhood children would find a stray animal, they would bring it to her. When her neighbor got drunk and spent the mortgage money on a monkey (this was the ’70s, a time when you could buy miniaturized jungle animals at the corner pet shop), my grandma kindly bought the monkey, and loved it for the rest of its life. All the animals were welcome at Jewel’s house.
But here in Maryland, and in most other states, there are more animals than homes. Many helpless creatures are abandoned, neglected, or worse. There are several good shelters, but not enough. I’m working to create an animal sanctuary where each animal taken in is loved and cared for, and none are euthanized for space. I firmly believe in the No-Kill movement, and abide by that philosophy.
We are Jewel’s House Animal Sanctuary, where all are welcome. Please help us in our mission by making a donation, whether it be funds, supplies, or a few hours of your time.
