In the name of….

your favorite 4-legged friend (or human), why not donate to an animal welfare charity? I’m pretty sure our dogs and cats are not distinguishing the bones, treats, and presents we give them over the holiday season from any other day. But to acknowledge how special they are in our lives, a donation to organizations that support animal rights issues seems like a perfect holiday gift (of course, in addition to their treats). Especially during these difficult economic times, there has been an increase in people abandoning their pets. This is consequently overcrowding shelters requiring them to turn animals away or euthanize them.

Now more than ever, these organizations need donations to help support the situation. I might have a soft spot in my heart for this cause because of my own shelter dog, Oliver (see above), but it doesn’t take much more than visiting some of the websites of these organizations for you to want to give to them.

Some suggestions:
{2} Humane Society International
{3} PAWS Chicago

Better yet, if you’re in a financial position to have a pet and have always wanted one in your life, do it now! Go to your local pet shelter and adopt! They are truly incredible creatures that enrich your lives in so many ways.

Everyday, we love and are loved by this 90 pounder who couldn’t make us Swiffer more in 100+ lifetimes, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. Although, it would be nice if he knew how to Swiffer…..
