Another great dog charity to contribute to: Petsmart Charities


Another great dog charity to contribute to:  Petsmart Charities

This is another dog charity we donate to, and they do amazing work. Here's a rundown from their end of year statement.

In 2012  about 400,000 more pets were able to enjoy their first holidays at home.   
 
               In November, your generous support assisted more than 24,000 pets and their families who were affected by Superstorm Sandy. The historic relief effort involved dispatching 23 Emergency Relief Waggin' vehicles full of life-giving supplies to New York, New Jersey and West Virginia.                                    
               In October, your donations helped fund the Rescue Waggin'® transporting its 60,000th dog, a six-month-old spaniel named Cookie who was adopted shortly after arriving in Iowa. The Rescue Waggin' program saves lives by transporting adoptable dogs and puppies from overcrowded facilities to shelters where they are in demand.                                   
               In June, your generosity helped PetSmart Charities celebrate the 5 millionth adoption, a beautiful Husky named Dodge.                                 
               In January, you helped launch a $1 million national program to spay/neuter cats and pit bull terriers — pets with the highest risk of euthanasia because of shelter overcrowding.                                          
               Your 2012 donations helped provide more than $32 million in funding to strengthen animal welfare efforts in communities all across North America.                               
                 In 2011, PetSmart Charities gave 84 cents from every dollar received directly to help pets in need — one of the highest percentages among all animal welfare organizations and continued the success in 2012.               
  Just $25 can help save a homeless pet's life. Please give a gift and help save another pet's life today.               
  An estimated 8 million pets will enter shelters in 2013 and only half of them will find their lifelong, loving homes. Please give a generous gift today and help save the lives of more pets. To donate:

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
