Show Shelter Animals some Love

We're an office full of dog lovers. Through the years, we have produced videos on dog grooming, dog training and city living with your dog. Both Julie and Melissa have adopted rescue animals and we find ourselves talking about our pets for at least part of every day. It was no surprise that we wanted to do videos highlighting issues surrounding animal cruelty.

Needless to say, we were so happy to partner with The Foundation. They help homeless pets through adoptions, helping shelters prepare for and recover from disaster and work to make shelters across the country more sustainable. If you're interested in adopting a new pet, they are a great resource.

We produced several videos with them - and you should check them out. But I took on this challenge to do one-minute-a-day, so I had to pick one of their programs. Today, I'm going to contribute to their Vaccination Fund. You can contribute money to vaccinate a dog from Kennel Cough or a cat from FVRCP. I wanted to choose this program because every year 6 to 8 million dogs and cats will enter U.S. shelters. Vaccinations are critical to help these animals fend off highly contagious diseases prevalent in crowded shelters. Because keeping shelter animals healthy greatly increases their chances of being adopted, vaccination programs help reduce the number of shelter animals euthanized for lack of a home. Not bad for a minute's work.

Will you join me?
Thanks - Alicia
