Random Acts of Kindness Volunteer / Non-Profit Meetup Message Board › Tomorrow' Adoption Event with EARS
Thanks so much for offering your time and skills to help at the EARS adoption day tomorrow! We're so excited to have you join us and help us get some of these special pets adopted AND get our name out so more people will adopt from rescue over the holidays! Please wear a brown shirt if you have one. If you don't, no problem - wear whatever you like or you're welcome to buy an EARS shirt for $13.
Also, if you happen to have any ribbon, cellophane, baskets, holiday tins or cute containers you no longer need and would like to contribute to our holiday vet/shelter appreciation baskets - we'd LOVE to have them as this is one of our next projects!
Per a recent article for the Dallas Companion Animal Project, this past year 20,684 dogs and cats—or % of the 28,392 companion animals that ended up in the city's shelter—were put to death simply because there weren't enough homes for them. Ending the killing of adoptable animals is not about any one shelter becoming no kill. It's about the entire community coming together and embracing all the components of a successful plan: spay/neuter, education, adoption and rescue, owner retention, behavior hotlines, responsible pet ownership. EARS strongly believes in the no-kill movement and educating your friends, family, colleagues, etc. is a big part of how you can help!
Warm regards and appreciation,
Kristana Blake and EARS
