Like my mom, I have always loved animals, so I spoke to my mom’s friend who is involved with animals and she told me about a special shelter for dogs and cats. It’s called Abandoned Pet Rescue and it’s in Ft. Lauderdale. It was started in 1996 to rescue and shelter abused, abandoned and neglected pets and then to try to find them homes.
It’s not a fancy shelter because all the money they collect goes to the care of the animals and everyone who works there is a volunteer. There are lots of worthy shelters, but the most important thing for me about APR is it’s a “No Kill” shelter. As soon as I heard that, I decided this was the shelter I wanted to help.
My mom and I called them and told them we would like to help them and asked what they need. APR is a tax exempt charity and the animals and I are asking for your help. Obviously any size donation would be so appreciated. You can just go to the following link:
Or, if you would prefer to give help in another way, they need: dry cat food (Friskies, Purina One, Cat Chow), canned cat food (Friskies, Whiskas, Fancy Feast), Paper Towels, Liquid dish washing soap, Cotton balls, Kuranda pet dog or cat beds, Kong chew toys for dogs OR a gift card to Walmat, PetSmart, PetSupermarket. We will gladly pick these items up from you and bring them to the shelter.
Thanks so much for your help.
