It's National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week!
Show some love to a local animal shelter or rescue group Nov. 4–10, 2012
National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week is the perfect time to help homeless pets waiting for new homes in shelters and with rescue groups across the country by celebrating the places that take care of them. We've got some ideas for how to show you support your local animal shelter or rescue!
A week's worth of lovin'
Each day this week, show your local animal shelters and rescues some love! This year we'll be making it easy and even more fun by creating a Facebook Event page for you. (Check back soon!)
Tuesday: Take a minute to thank the people who work at your local shelter or rescue groups. If you've adopted a pet from them, send an updated picture through snail mail, email, or by posting on Facebook to let them know how well your pet is doing!
Wednesday: Become a fan of the Shelter Pet Project on Facebook!
Thursday: Shelters and rescue groups are always in need of towels, toys, and other supplies. Check their websites for wish lists or give them a call to see what they need.
