In our everyday lives, in the choices we make and the actions we take, we can create change. These are the simple, yet profound, things we can do...
These actions honor our animal friends, and show gratitude for the love and companionship they give to us so freely. These actions acknowledge their intrinsic value, and express respect for them as living beings. Moreover, these are the actions that, one at a time, begin to bring an end to the homeless animal tragedy, and they are in your power.
If you want to do more...
Every community is different in its homeless animal problem - in its causes, as well as in its progress toward a solution. To find out how you can best become involved and help, find out what kinds of shelters you have in your community, and what kind of help they need. You may be able to foster an animal who needs extra care or time the shelter cannot give; you may be able to care for the animals in the shelter and give them the love and attention that will help them stay healthy while they wait for a home; you may be able to help the shelter raise funds or educate their community.
There may also be other organizations working outside the walls of the shelter - rescue groups, groups providing low cost spay/neuter, groups working to help feral cats, educational organizations, etc. - that can use your help.
Your time, your action, and your advocacy are incredibly valuable gifts to a shelter or non-profit organization, and to the animals themselves.
All of these organization sare playing a part in building communities that no longer have overwhelming homeless animal problems and have, therefore, no need to kill animals; they're working toward creating communities that find killing to be an unacceptable answer, and that see animals as having value and beauty, as beings with a sacred spark of life and spirit
Whatever you decide to do, we thank you for your compassion, your concern, and your efforts to bring about an end to the homeless animal tragedy and create a better world for animals.
