The very concept of “unwanted pets” is foreign to so many of us. But the sad fact is that there are more pet animals in need of homes than there are homes to take them in. Every day, thousands of times, there is a sad ending to a potential pet’s story.

Animal Friends isn’t having any of that. They attack the problem from many angles: promoting spay and neuter programs, operating no-kill shelters, matching pets in need of homes with people to take them in, and acting as protectors when disasters or cruelty strikes. Their mission began during World War II, caring for pets while their soldier-owners were overseas, and they’ve been at it ever since.

None of this comes freely, however. That’s where we step in. your donations, matched one-for-five up to a hundred dollars in matching funds by Caerdwyn, will go to support the fight. With charities like this, the connection between donation and life for an animal in need is very real, very immediate.

You know the next step. It’s the right thing to do. It’s the manly thing to do.
