Free to Live
My sister shared a story with me the other day about a visitor she’d had during work at the non-profit animal sanctuary Free To Live. This is a place where animals who are not adopted will live out their lives. Euthanasia is not practiced and they rely heavily on donations to stay in operation. This young visitor was willing to help! Accompanied by her parents and a Dora the Explorer backpack loaded up with dog food and treats, the elementary student couldn’t wait to share her birthday gift… a donation for the animals. Seems the little girl told her mother that in honor of her birthday she wanted to bring much needed supplies to the shelter. Along with the backpack she carried a Powerpuff Girls blanket for the dogs. How cute is that? I think she is a little super-power out to save the world before bedtime. (Powerpuff Girl humor)
As with most animal shelters, there are many opportunities to contribute on their website. From donating a Kuranda bed (special 28% donation discount with beds ship directly to the shelter), sponsoring a special needs animal, or by bringing in items on a posted wish list. Adopt a Pet has listings of animal shelters near you if you'd like to donate to your local pet sanctuary.
