I’ve worked at my local animal shelter, volunteered there, adopted a number of dogs from the shelter and still have friends who work at the shelter. So I was pleased to see the week of November 6-12, 2016 designated as National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week by the Humane Society of the United States.
You can support your local animal shelter in a number of ways:
—Adopt an animal
—Foster an animal
—Attend special events sponsored by your local shelter
—Spread the word about shelter needs and adoptable animals
—Spay/neuter your pets and encourage others to do the same
