Our Big Caturday NEWS #ASPCA150, Adoptapalooza, Crazy Cat Lover Haircuts and more!
On Sunday, April 10th, ASPCA will celebrate its 150th anniversary, and in honor of this important milestone, they are launching 150 Days of Rescue,
a nationwide action campaign that seeks to unite the country in making a difference in the lives of homeless and abused animals. Animal lovers are encouraged to visit ASPCA.org/150days and pledge their time between April 10 and September 7 to help animals in need, with the goal of reaching 150,000 actions for animals in 150 days. Ways to participate include volunteering at a local shelter, donating, fostering, adopting a shelter pet, etc.
We’re long time advocates of the many causes the ASPCA supports. They’ve come a long way in 150 years of helping animals but we have a long way to go. This vintage poster”the cat they left behind” is one of my favorites not only because it illustrates the kindness of an animal lover but because the message is as timely as ever. Every day people move and leave pets behind either in the vacated home or tossed on the street. There is never any excuse to abandon a pet. If you or anyone you know can no longer care for the animal, there is always an option of no-kill shelters or rescue groups. Find the closest one near you by entering a zipcode at Petfinder.com
Animal lovers who log their good deed will also be given the opportunity to nominate their favorite animal shelter to receive a grant prize of $150,000! Enter now at ASPCA.org/150days
