“The greatest Christmas gift is giving!!”
There are more homeless pets than there have been in decades. There are also more needy and homeless children, seniors and unemployed than there have been in decades. Give a little more this year and eat or entertain a little less. Give to toys for tots, give to shelters, volunteer, and donate to give families and the needy a meal for the Christmas and Christmas Eve. But for you group you can actually save lives… that groups I homeless pets and animals.
Many shelters and rescues have lowered their fees for adoptions. www.bestfriends.org is one and I have heard several of the government… city and county shelters and local rescues are doing the same and are also asking for donations to feed and house pets who are not adopted before the holidays.

There are so many animals hoping for homes this holiday season. Help Santa make a homeless pet’s dreams come true! Because the only thing they’ve ever wished for is you. Become a champion of love and help us move closer to a time of No More Homeless Pets.
Best Friends Animal Society is a nonprofit organization building no-kill programs and partnerships that will bring about a day when there are No More Homeless Pets®. At the core of Best Friends’ work is the dream that one day kindness will replace cruelty, and animals will no longer be destroyed because they are unwanted or imperfect. Spaying and neutering will be the rule for all pets and adoption will be the first option for everyone. Making this dream a reality is the mission we call No More Homeless Pets. The society’s leading initiatives in animal care and community programs are coordinated from its Kanab, Utah, headquarters, the country’s largest no-kill sanctuary. This work is made possible by the personal and financial support of a grassroots network of supporters and community partners across the nation. For more information visit: www.bestfriends.org
There are pets of all types available for adoption or fostering: dogs, cats, horses, pocket pet, birds, reptiles, fish, exotics and the list goes one.
If you plan to get a pet for someone else… make sure that you consider whether they can afford it and then take them along to chose the pet that claims their heart.
A great gift in these tough times is supplies and food for families, friends and neighbors out of work or having a tough time, so they can keep and feed their pets.
And if you love pets, there is always room to adopt just one more pet and the holiday season is a great time to do so. They will add to your joy and you will have saved a life!
