Ashley put this on Instagram with the note, “Me and my babe”:
You know what else never gets old? Sharing your home with an animal (or animals). OK, so I’m a total animal lover and all I’ve got are rescue pets, so maybe I’m a little biased. But if you want your own lil’ babe like Olive, adopting is def the way to go.
It’s also important that if and when you get a pet, you make sure you get it spayed or neutered. If you’re hesitant about the cost, I’ve got good news for you: You can search on the ASPCA site for affordable places to get your pet fixed.
Not everyone can adopt (maybe you’ve already got pets, or you’re allergic to them, or you don’t live in a place that allows pets), but most of us are able to help shelter animals — even if all we do is talk to others about the importance of adopting and stuff like that. It’s also important to report animal cruelty if we ever see it, because we don’t want animals like Olive getting abused. And if we do have pets, it’s important to make sure they get what they need, like proper food and shelter. And, of course, plenty of hugs!
