Helping Paws

The disaster in Japan this past weekend is just horrible. We can't begin to imagine the loss and suffering of the people and animals there. We just did something to help. We sent a couple of simple text messages to send the green papers to help! The American Humane Association has sent their Red Star Animal Emergency Services to help the animal victims of the Japanese disaster.

To make a donation to these services:
Text PROTECT to 85944 to donate $10 to support efforts to provide aid to animal victims of disaster.

We also sent green papers to help out all the two leggers who are affected by the disaster. We did this by texting the American Red Cross.
