BENEFITING: Volunteers of Burbank Animal Shelter
According to the ASPCA website, "approximately 5 million to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized (60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats)" A cause for paws wants to provide a better home for these sheltered animals, with more available items like food, bowls, leashes, toys, funds for neutering, training, etc. I want to be able to help create a temporary home for these animals, not a "jail"
First, I want to start off with two local animal shelters nearest me, which include the Burbank Animal Shelter and the Pasadena Humane Society. Both shelters list on their website items that they are in great need of donations for!

Eventually, I want this campaign to grow so that I can donate to larger charities and non profits to help sheltered animals everywhere!
