- Giving Local
We encourage you to check out an op-ed from yesterday’s New York Post that underscores the importance of “giving local” when it comes to supporting animal causes. The op-ed discusses the public’s frequent confusion between local shelters and national animal rights groups like the ASPCA and Humane Society of the United States, and the assistance they ultimately provide to animals. The author explains that while national groups deliver limited help to animals, it is local shelters that are busy working hands-on to rehabilitate, care for and finally place homeless animals with loving individuals and families.
Giving to local resources can help some of the most trusted and invaluable tools for a healthy, happy and lifelong relationship between you and your pet. We applaud the New York Post and others who celebrate those doing the right thing for all dogs!
