*music* When there is a natural disaster, problems with poverty or hunger, We do not often think of the lives of animals If a person is dealing with a natural disaster or barely provides the basic necessities for their family, their pets are not a priority Without the help of their owners animals die in disasters or are forced to live on the street Thousands of pets suffer and do not receive the care they need each year This is where the Humane Society intervenes. Volunteers and workers for the Humane Society travel to dangerous places throughout the United States to rescue animals that need help For example, during Hurricane Harvey in 2017 Volunteers and workers went quickly to Texas and helped dogs, cats, and other animals and pets. Also, there are animal shelters that are owned by the Humane Society. These shelters are a temporary home for pets without a family, that the Humane Society hopes to find for them. Even in Berks County, Pennsylvania, there is a Humane Society shelter that is taking care of animals at this very moment! This Humane Society in Reading Pennsylvania pays close attention to the pitbulls that are very common in shelters because there are bad stereotypes about them In addition, the Humane Society raises awareness about puppy mills – an inhumane practice that only uses dogs to breed and create more puppies. With fundraising and volunteer support, the Humane Society can save dogs and give them a good home. But, without the help of volunteers and generous donations, the Humane Society will not be able to continue the effort to help the animals. You can be the savior of dozens of pets Who knows? You may even find your next furry friend while volunteering. If you do not have enough time to volunteer, you can donate. Go to humanesociety.org today for more information on how to help Thanks.
