Generosity, sharing, and appreciation for all that we have are hallmark themes of the holiday season. As we gather with our loved ones to give thanks for all that we have, it is only natural to want to extend our resources to those less fortunate, as well.
For some, that may mean filling up donation bins for area food banks or donating winter wear to those in need, but for animal lovers, your thoughts may be on lending a hand to shelter pets this winter, instead. Like so many other charities, animal shelters and rescue organizations are always in need of assistance. From monetary gifts to gifts of time, these nonprofits depend on us to keep their doors open and to continue helping our less-fortunate animal friends.
