Two gift ideas for people in your life who love animals and want to make an impact.
Bring Comfort to a Cold Dog
You can change the life of a chained dog who doesn’t have shelter from winter weather. Become an “Angel for Animals” sponsor, or contribute whatever amount you wish, and a sturdy doghouse will be delivered by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to a “backyard dog” to help her/her survive frigid weather.
Each sturdy doghouse has an entrance covered by a flap to keep the interior dry. For many of these lonely animals this will be the first real shelter that they’d ever had. http://bit.ly/17Xxsfp
Bring a Soldier’s Rescued Dog Home from Iraq or Afghanistan
“My best friend, Iram, is alive and here at my side because of you. SPCA International sent their Operation Baghdad Pups (OBP) rescue team to Iraq to save the puppy my soldiers rescued one day from a burning, abandoned car. Iram was my comfort, my strength, my joy during my third long and lonely 15 month deployment in Iraq. He saved me – and SPCA International made it possible for me to save him.”
Sergeant Major David Dantzler, USA Ret
“U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan befriend local animals as a way to help cope with the emotional hardships they endure every day while deployed in a war zone. The Operation Baghdad Pups program provides veterinary care and coordinates complicated logistics and transportation requirements in order to reunite these beloved pets with their service men and women back in the U.S. These important animals not only help our heroes in the war zone, but they also help them readjust to life back home after combat.”
