During the beginning of November, National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week recognizes shelters that provide care and bridge the gap to adoption for many abandoned and stray animals. The day is also dedicated to the hard-working people who support the efforts of the shelters and keep pets healthy.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Get to know your local animal shelter and learn the types of support it needs to continue to provide services to the animals and community it serves. Let them know you appreciate them by leaving a donation. Consider volunteering or even adopting if you have been looking for a forever companion.
