SAVE THE HOMELESS PETS
There are millions of homeless pets, just waiting for someone like you. That's why PETsMART doesn't sell cats and dogs. Through PETsMART Charities, we work with local shelters to help place more than 3,900 pets in loving homes each week. Since 1992, we have found homes for over 806,960 pets, and we'd like to do more. So if you're considering adding a pet to your family, we ask that you adopt and save a life at the same time. You'll find a PETsMART Charities Adoption Center at your nearest PETsMART, as well as information on when pets will be available for adoption. With your help, our goal is to see that every pet has a loving home...and a future
WORLD ANIMAL DAY
In Rome on October 4 World Animal Day
is sharedby the birthday of St Francis
of Assisi to mark this day stray mutts
are spared from dog catchers and receive
free bones from the local butchers.
Domestic Pets were affected too by the attack on America,September 11,2001.
PETA led a caampaign in the aftermath of 911
to let animal rescuers and volunteers to get into the
evacuated buildings to save the animals.
They have been without water or food for days .
There was a need for a Task Force to rescue the animals.
Three PETA vehicles left Norfolk, VA and were on the
ground in Manhattan, near the American Express Towers,
manned by PETA's Community Animal Project and
Domestic Animal Investigations and Abuse staff and other
PETA staff,where Volunteers could contact PETA directly .
This terrible tragedy had serious repercussions for the animals as well as the humans.
As a result of the tremendous loss of human lives, many animals were left orphaned or trapped in evacuated buildings .
PETA and other animal protection groups were willing to send trained
rescuers into the buildings to take the animals out, if given the chance.
Waivers of liability would be signed by PETA,to ease the minds
of those who could otherwise be held responsible in the event of any injury or death.
United Animal Nations
offers assistance in mobilizing
volunteers and rescuing and caring for abandoned animals.
