A heartfelt message from Nikki Karis, Founder, CEO, and creative entrepreneur of Tail Life…
Thank you for visiting Tail Life, dedicated to uniting people and their pets from around the world. Via Tail Life, I am committed to drawing attention to the relationship people have with their pets of all kinds, but want to call special attention to rescue animals, feeling they are often overlooked for adoption.
Sadly, the value of an animal’s life, especially those who aren’t purebreds, is considered to be worth less than that of a human’s life resulting in a staggering number of animals being euthanized each and every day. This is due to a myriad of reasons including a failure of humans to spay and neuter their pets, to consider a pet a lifetime commitment, and to recognize the beauty present in an animal who is less than perfect.
I firmly believe that animals, rescues animals especially, are some of our greatest teachers here on planet Earth as they possess the ability to forgive, even after enduring extreme abuse and neglect. Animals also love unconditionally, meaning no matter what their owner’s imperfections might be, they love their owners without limitation.
As I demonstrate via my own rescue stories, animals who have been rescued are especially loving and grateful for having been given a second chance at life. In an almost miraculous way, anxious, antisocial, and even aggressive animals can be transformed into the most loving, outgoing pets. Dogs who once roamed the streets can transform into the most unbelievable pets filling their owners’ hearts and souls.
I hope the stories told on Tail Life (via Tail Life TV and the Fairy Tails Rock podcast) will inspire and motivate you, and leave you feeling empowered and encouraged to involve yourself in animal rescue and other efforts that share one overall objective – to restore faith in humanity by having compassion for the animals. Like myself, you may find yourself vacationing on a Caribbean island when a stray cat or dog visits your villa wanting a one-way ticket home.
Love and blessings to you and your pets, Nikki Karis
