Our FEATURED PET is Missy. She was rescued by Home Free as her crate was being moved into the hallway outside the door of the room where they euthanize the animals. You can see from this picture sent by her SC foster mom that she is a good girl. Now she needs a foster in NJ and then a forever home. Perhaps you know someone?
Tens of thousands of perfectly suitable companions like Missy will die today. It's NOT because of pet over population. It's NOT because of shelter overcrowding. It's NOT because no one wants them. Each animal that is killed at an animal control facility dies because not one person stepped up and took it out of there. The ones that do survive are safe because at least one person made an effort. Please, today, be that person. Here's how you can help:
ADOPT. It's a commitment for the life of the animal, and they will repay you with a love that is unconditional, 24/7!
FOSTER. Learn more about this no-cost, short-term commitment. Fosters save lives by just offering a little space and care. Remember that these animals are living in tiny metal and concrete prisons, so no matter how small your place is that you can offer, or how many hours you work, it's better than where they are now. Your offer to foster will be the primary reason why one more animal lives - it's that easy, and the feeling you'll get from knowing YOU are the reason why that animal is alive is so amazing!
DONATE. There are rescues who are wanting to save more animals but cannot afford it. Give to your local rescue, or pledge to a death-row animal online. Give in kind (food, supplies, blankets and towels.) Give your time at adoption events, fundraisers, transports. Email me for more information.
NETWORK. You don't need to plaster your facebook page with hundreds of sad dog faces. Just pick one animal online or at your local shelter or rescue and share it with people you know who might be interested or might know someone who is. One animal at a time.
