I struggled with a story I really wanted to publish this week. Then I woke up Saturday morning with the spark of an idea. It turned into this short piece.
After months of chores and proving myself, Mom finally agreed to take me to Moonlight Rescue to pick out a pet of my own.
The enclosures seemed to go on and on.
“Mom, they all look so sad.”
“That’s because this is no place to live. They need real homes and families.”
I knelt down and came to face level with one fuzzy face. Dark eyes glistened and a whine came up from a muzzle tucked between two large paws.
The sign on the enclosure said “Luna.” Beneath that read: “Every year, thousands of werewolves are euthanized. Adopt don’t shop.”
