'Tis the season for love, laughter, and of course . . . giving.
For every pet that has a present to open under the tree, there are countless others without a home, and in need of love. Keep those less fortunate animals in your heart this holiday season and if possible, include them in your traditions by giving the gift of love.
Here are some great animal charities that WebVet recommends:
Best Friends Animal Society (BFAS): The purpose of this organization is simple: To build a better world through kindness to animals. Since the late 1980's BFAS has worked to place dogs and cats who were considered "unadoptable" into good homes, and to reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs.
- Right now -- and for a limited time only -- every gift made (up to $2 million) to the animals at Best Friends will be doubled! Thanks to a group of generous donors, your gift will now be able to save twice as many lives, so now is truly the time to give. Clickhere to make a difference.
- You can support the organization in a variety of ways: by joining Maddie's Club, purchasing merchandise, or making a donation that will benefit affiliated rescue groups, shelters, spay/neuter programs and organizations that work with animals to help people. To make a donation, click here.
- With your donation this holiday season, you can choose a festive card to be sent to the honoree of your kindness to animals. Click here to find out more information and to make a donation.
- Shorty's Rescue was created in 2001 when Shorty rescued his dog Geisha out of the Los Angeles Animal Shelter, and it now offers assistance to a variety of charities including Linda Blair's WorldHeart Foundation, Karma Rescue, Doors of Faith Orphanage and Furbaby.
