I heard a story on the Today Show yesterday and had to share it. A little girl in Oregon who works in pet shelters has created a unique way to donate food to shelters for dogs and cats. It’s a website called www.freekibble.com and it’s a wonderful way to spend two seconds a day and have an impact on the life of dogs and cats abandoned and in shelters. It’s based on the premise of www.freerice.com which donates food to people.
You visit the site, take the daily poll question and Bang! That’s it. There’s a counter on the site that will show you how much food has been donated and there’s an adorable dog that barks when you move your mouse over him.
One of the casualties of these difficult economic time are pets; dogs, cats and even horses. As people foreclose on their homes, they abandon their pets and give them to shelters. It breaks my heart, along of course, with the human tragedy that is also experienced by the owners and they struggle to make it in this tough economy.
It’s a little thing you can do but it will make a difference!
Bark! Just do it : )
