We’re calling all our amazing supporters to join us on #GIVINGTUESDAY!
#GIVINGTUESDAY is a global giving movement that has been built by individuals, families, communities, businesses and organizations like us in all 50 states and in countries around the world! Millions of people have come together to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
Fast Facts About #GIVINGTUESDAY:

Time is priceless. There’s no better way to help animals than to volunteer to help care for them, socialize them and foster them. Plus, our team of volunteers is pretty awesome, if we do say so ourselves. Check out our Volunteer webpage to learn more about how you can apply to volunteer or foster with us today.
