I Adopted Your Pet Today

I adopted your pet today... The one you left at the pound; The one you had for eight years And no longer wanted around.


I adopted your pet today... Did you know that he's lost weight? Did you know he's scared and depressed And seems to have lost all faith?


I adopted your pet today... He had fleas and a little cold; Guess you don't care what shape he's in? You abandoned him I am told.


I adopted your pet today... Were you having a baby or moving away? Did you suddenly develop allergies, Or was there NO reason he couldn't stay?


I adopted your pet today... He doesn't play or even eat much; I guess he's very sad inside and It'll take time for him to trust.


I adopted your pet today... And here he is going to stay; He's found his FOREVER home And a warm bed in which to lay.


I adopted your pet today... And shall give him all that he will need - Patience, love, and security, So he can forget your selfish deed.
