All of us get upset when we see a stray puppy or cat, or watch an ASPCA commercial, but feel powerless to help. To make matters worse, the down economy means many people are abandoning their pets and fewer and fewer of us have the means to adopt those animals in need. International Homeless Animals Day is coming up on August 20th (this Saturday), and in honor of celebrating friendship with the National Girlfriend Awards (have you voted for the winners yet?), here are ways to help your furry best friends!
Donate money – Organizations like the ASPCA, PAWS, Best of Friends Humane Society, Best Friends Animal Society and the Humane Society are dedicated to helping animals suffering from cruelty, abuse, homelessness and/or neglect. There are lots of ways to give—monthly donations, single gifts, or join team ASPCA and participate in races around the country!
