Dear Santa: Help Unfortunate Pets

Cat-and-Dog-Christmas

The holidays always get us in the spirit of giving and spending time with love ones. It is also a good time to realize how fortunate we are to be able to give, and to help those less fortunate. Dogs are very much a big part of our families yet so many are left lonely, cold, sick or mistreated. Nothing makes us feel more warm and fuzzy, than to help our four legged friends in need. Here at Easy Scoop a Poop, we have gathered some dog loving organizations making a big difference in our pet communities.

Humane Society: A great way to help your local community of pets. Through their rescue efforts, disaster response, mobile veterinary clinics, global street dog program, and five animal care centers, they directly care for thousands of animals—pets and wildlife—each year.

National Canine Cancer Foundation: Canine Cancer affects one out of every three dogs.  Of those, over half of them will die of cancer. The National Canine Cancer Foundation is asking for your help to fund important research grants that are working towards improving those statistics.

Pet Food Stamps: Helps fill the void in the United States Food Stamp program which excludes the purchase of pet food. In these rough economic times, many pet owners are forced to abandon their beloved pet to the ASPCA, North Shore Animal League or other animal shelters due to the inability to pay for their basic food supply and care

Canines with a Cause: Helps shelter dogs find homes by training them to work as companion, therapy and service dogs for veterans in need

Petfinder Foundation: helps homeless pets by saving lives through adoptions, helping shelters prepare for           and recover from disaster and working to help make shelters across the country more sustainable.

Chelsea Hutchinson Foundation: Helps provide grants for seizure-response dogs. These trained companion dogs may be able to detect an oncoming seizure and provide warnings and/or respond after the onset of a seizure.

We’re much stronger when we stand together.

With much appreciation,
