It’s National Shelter Appreciation Week — and what better way to celebrate than to join Care2 and Adopt-a-Pet.com in promoting shelter pet adoption through the new America’s Favorite Animal Shelter contest!
Too many animals have no reason to celebrate right now. Animal welfare groups estimate that at least six to eight million cats and dogs enter animal shelters every year, and half of them are euthanized because there is no one to adopt them. But all of these animals deserve a loving home.
Help us raise awareness and save homeless pets — vote for your special animal rescue or shelter today, and it could win $10,000!
Your vote in our new contest counts in more ways than you can imagine. Every person who votes is making a public statement in support of rescue and adoption, not puppy mills and overbreeding. And everyone who tells a friend about the contest is spreading the word about the amazing work animal rescue groups and shelters do every day to save homeless animals.
Working on these contests has been eye opening for me — the people who spend their days, nights, weekends and holidays rescuing animals from the streets, driving animals across country to loving homes, taking in one more cat because the alternative is the street or worse — these people are tireless and amazing. They are heroes. They need and deserve our thanks and help.
You can help homeless animals in your community today. Vote in our contest to help a group win a much-needed donation, then spread the word — post your group’s contest page on Facebook and MySpace, tweet it to your network, send an email to your friends and family, and let your community know that you care to save homeless animals.
