Equip Yourself With the Tools to Take Action for Homeless Animals

Did you know that approximately 7.6 million pets enter animal shelters nationwide every year? Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.* Did you also know that over 700,000 animals are killed in shelters every year?

Although no one person can help every suffering animal, everyone has a role to play in the protection of pets, shelter, and stray animals in their community.

You can do something about it. Watch the video in the action below from our friends at Best Friends, an organization leading the standard in rescue and no-kill shelter advocacy, to educate and empower people across the country to help animals through community service.
