Everything You Purchase Helps Animals And Shelters In Need!
Tyler, TX (PRWEB) November 08, 2012
The destruction and devastation Sandy left behind is much deeper than the images seen on the news. Animal shelters and sanctuaries all across the affected areas were already filled to capacity before the super-storm arrived. Many were damaged by flooding and fallen trees, losing food, equipment and medical supplies in the process. Some still do not have power, heat or drinkable water. The shelters that weren't damaged are doing their best to accommodate as many animals as possible.
“The situation is really bad and will get worse before it gets better,” says Chris Ruben, founder & CEO of AdoptAShelter.com. “So many entire communities have been affected by the storm, including those shelter staffs, volunteers, foster parents and animal-loving supporters who are themselves having to rebuild their own lives. And all of this is happening against the backdrop of an extended period of difficult economic times that have led to declines in every measure of fund-raising. I cannot remember a time when the need has been this great... and this is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week.”
According to the World Giving Index published last December, the United States of America is the most charitable country on earth. “From texting to Twitter parties, there are so many new ways to donate directly to relief organizations, and AdoptAShelter.com is one of them”, says Ruben. “AdoptAShelter.com is a free and easy-to-use online Cash Rewards Mall featuring over 475 top-name merchants, from Amazon® to Zazzle®.
