Give a Wag! Gives to Columbus Shelters

Pets Without Parents in Columbus, Ohio's mission is to place every pet that enters their doors with a loving, fur-ever family, to educate the community about proper treatment and respect for all animals along with how important spaying and neutering your pet is. They hope to someday see that every pet is loved. This non-profit, no-kill shelter is always looking for dedicated volunteers and future foster-families for their adoptable pets.  When you are considering adopting a new family member, perhaps choose an older or a special needs pet.  Puppies and kittens are PAWSOME - but all of their animals deserve a second chance, and older pooches can be more calm and obedient!

Another worthy animals rescue is PetPromise, Life for Pets, Pets for Life.  Their mission is this:  "PetPromise is dedicated to helping create a world where there are no more homeless pets through education, sterilization and adoption".  Isn't that a worthwhile mission?  They have been rescuing strays from the street and from high kill shelters since the year 2000.  They have many worthwhile programs such as a trap neuter return program for area feral cats and education services for the community as to proper treatment and respect for all animals as well as the importance of spaying and neutering pets.  They are always in need of donations, fosters or volunteers to help their mission become a reality.  If you are looking for a new furry best friend, please stop by soon!
