We love our family pets.They provide companionship, affection, humor and so much more in our daily lives. The month of April was Anti Cruelty towards Animals month. The first week in May celebrate national Be Kind to Animals week.
Below are just some ways to celebrate:
Help a local shelter or rescue by donating needed items or your time. Many local organizations have wish lists to make a dog waiting for its forever home more comfortable. This may include: unopened food, blankets, towels or toys. Volunteering your time can also make the difference in a dog's life. Click here to see if there is a shelter or rescue near you.
Speak for the animals by reviewing legislation that can affect the care or well being of beloved pets. From puppy mills to breed specific legislation, one can usually find a cause that hits close to home. Well written letters are recommended.
Sponsor a dog in need. PBRC has thousands of Pit Bulls waiting to find their forever home on our website. By featuring a dog, it can help promote that dog's adoption. To feature a Pit Bull on our site go to: http://pbrc.net/dom.html
Report any cruelty witnessed to save a dog from neglect or abuse. Contacting local humane agents or authorities is a only phone call away. Click here for our recent What Can I Do? blog for more info.
On a lighter note, spoiling your dog is also an acceptable way to celebrate! PBRC's Poppy Shop offers lots of fun ways for you and your dog to celebrate and help the dogs of PBRC! http://www.pbrc.net/shop/shop.html
