May is National Pet Month and there are many ways to celebrate the animals in your life. Most local animal shelters are in need of volunteers and donations to find homes for great pets.
A Missouri animal shelter and director/producer are part of an 8-episode web series on saving homeless pets. In this video Adam Shankman introduces us to Jake, a dog he rescued from a box in a parking lot and other animals looking for homes with the help of dedicated volunteers.
Another Missouri facility, the Animal Protective Association of Missouri, is asking businesses and individuals to become month-long “Adoption Angels”. By making a tax-deductible donation to cover the adoption fees, sponsors assist anywhere from 5-25 homeless pets. The identity of the chosen animals is unknown to both the sponsor and the adopter until the APA staff informs the adopter that their new friend’s adoption fee has already been paid. To learn more about becoming an Adoption Angel call the APA Development Department at (314) 645-4610 ext. 12
