EVENT: Saving Pets Challenge 2015
EVENT DATE: May 04, 2015
I decided to join this fundraiser because I am such a vocal supporter of NO-KILL SHELTERS. I think it's very important for anyone who loves animals to be a part of this cause. Of course I would love to see SOUTHSIDE ANIMAL SHELTER win the whole shebang, but no matter who wins whatever amount the funds are going to a very worthwhile cause. Won't you please join me in this quest to help all the forgotten, neglected, abused and the ones who just found themselves in an unforntunate situation today? I will be forever grateful for any help you are willing to give. Donations begin as low as $10.00. Please help the shelters help these animals! For those unable to give financially at this time, your local shelter is ALWAYS needing help. Cash of course is great, but so are a couple rolls of paper towels, a gal.of bleach, old towels or blankets, clay litter, food, treats, toys, laundry detergent or a great big thing...your time. Stop in and help the volunteers for an hour or day or sign on for a regular shift. They would be so grateful. Just stopping in and nuzzling a kitty's forehead or scratching a dog's ear, handing out a few treats or playing with one or two or just saying a few kind words to these animals. Since these are no-kill shelters some of these animals are there for years! They ALL deserve some loving words and attention. The regular staff just doesn't have the time to give these wonderful and oftentimes confused and lonely critters that extra pat or hug or treat or playtime! Most importantly, when it's time to bring that new pet into your home THINK! Don't add to the problem. Add to the solution and adopt from a shelter. Every animal that is adopted leaves a space for another homeless animal to sleep, eat and live. The space in shelters is finite you know.
Thanks - Deb Turley
