ASPCA: 150 Days of Rescue
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) is celebrating its 150th anniversary this month. In honor of this important milestone, the ASPCA is launching 150 Days of Rescue, a nationwide action campaign that seeks to unite the country in making a difference in the lives of homeless and abused animals.
Animal lovers are encouraged to visit the ASPCA and pledge their time between April 10 and September 7, 2016, to help animals in need, with the goal of reaching 150,000 positive actions for animals in 150 days. Ways to participate include volunteering at a local shelter, donating, fostering, adopting a shelter pet, etc. Animal lovers who log their good deed will also be given the opportunity to nominate their favorite animal shelter to receive a grant prize of $150,000!
You can watch the video below featuring celebrities (Martha Stewart; Kesha; 50 Cent; Edie Falco; Nathan Lane; Julie Bowen; Krysten Ritter; Jason Schwartzman, and others) who are speaking on behalf of vulnerable animals in humorous ways.
I just started volunteering with them and have my first event next weekend to collect donations!
