When we go through our C.A.R.E. values we arrive at ‘A’ which stands for animals. Animals are often our companions. Most of the time this animal companionship is for a lifetime. Unified Caring Association prides itself on helping and celebrating our furry friends. And if the amount of time people spend online watching funny cat videos and the exuberant reunions of dogs and their owners is any indication of how much people love animals, we are on the right caring path.
On one occasion, Unified Caring Association came across a story about a golden retriever who loved to give out hugs. In short, a golden retriever named Louboutina likes to hug strangers. Louboutina’s owner recounts how this happens, where this loving dog will sit next to the person she wants to hug. Then she will begin to lean against the person’s leg. Once this happens, the she will go in for the hug. This dog has now become a bit of a legend in New York City. Louboutina even has her own Instagram account,where her hugging encounters are highlighted along her day to day animal companionship. Dogs share a special bond with humans, and everyone can agree that receiving a hug from a dog is one way to get a quick mood lift. Louboutina’s hugs are an example of positive stories you might find on UCA’s caring blogs and/or positive news.
Unified Caring Association (UCA) also has membership benefits for our member’s pets! Some of these are discounts at the pet pharmacy, on food, toys, grooming, etc! We also love sharing the love of animals in our social media posts, like on our UCA Pinterest board Care to Smile! This board is filled with ‘paws-itve’ images that share the love of animals of all shapes and sizes! Animals share their unconditional love and caring for us, as seen by Louboutina’s hugs in New York City. We love to help out all animals, and love to spread the word about caring acts performed by both people and pets alike!
