“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”
-The Dalai Lama
A quote like this always reminds me of the less fortunate, children, the elderly, and our animals. I hope we all find the strength to help a little (or a lot). The following is a short list of some organizations that help animals. Let’s start the New Year positively!

Alley Cat Allies: the cat’s leading advocate

IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare)
LCA (Last Chance for Animals)

Visit them and see how you can help. Maybe by signing petitions or writing letters or donating food, clothing, money or volunteering. If you’re not sure, check them out at Charity Navigator. Most of these websites provide information on how to keep pets healthy, too. Recommended to visit www.leapingbunny.org for cruelty-free products.
