My first stray dog followed me home from school when I was in the fourth grade. We've always had at least one adopted pet in the mix, and usually more. Somehow, they always seemed grateful.
Pets are not a throw away item, yet every day, more and more end up in kill shelters around the country. Lucky are those who are rescued and cared for by people who care. There are many animal rescue organizations doing a great job, but all this good work takes time, open hearts and funding.
I've reached out to some local organizations that are doing stellar work, and they agreed to let me share their information here:
Located in Southhampton, New York,

All donations help, even if they're small. The shelters are always happy to take old blankets, bedding and anything else that might provide comfort to these animals during their time there.
My fundraising efforts usually benefit Almost Home, since they are right around the corner from me. Thanks for caring!
