Pet Rescue: Will You Help?

As people, we are able to voice our opinion, fight for our beliefs, and take action to ensure our basic needs are satisfied. Not everyone may be willing to do so, but we certainly have the choice.

Animals don't have that choice. If someone treats them poorly, they cannot contact the authorities. If they find themself abandoned, they cannot voice their need or knock at the door of a homeless shelter.

It's a wonderful thing when we put helpful people together with animals that need help. For example, you can have fun playing an online trivia game and at the same time help feed pets who have found themself in a shelter. For every question you answer correctly, they'll donate kibbles of food to help feed abandoned pets.

There are many animal rescue organizations that do great things for animals in need. For example, the Kalamazoo Animal Rescue has a great story. It may just be one animal in that story, but how wonderful for that one dog and his one new lucky family.

If you are considering adding a pet to your family, find a local pet shelter. Here's a great site that is a directory of shelters throughout the US. Or, consider volunteering your time or making a donation to your local pet shelter.

Imagine the power in everybody doing one thing this month to help an animal in need.
