#purrs4peace Hello everyone, we’re participating in Purrs4Peace Week 32. This weeks Purrs4Peace has us purring for the earthquake victims in Haiti.
What can we do in the face of such human and animal tragedy?
Dollars are needed to fund efforts. Therefore, donation to legitimate organizations such as the American or International Red Cross, Salvation Army, Unicef, and a variety of others can be made. Most of these sites indicate you can designate that the donation be earmarked for Haiti relief efforts.
My donation will be to an organization that will help with animal rescue and relief since these littlest victims often are ignored. Groups such as the United States Humane Society and the Humane Society International (HSI).
The animal victims aren’t really on the mainstream media’s radar at this point. The only reference to animal victims I have been able to find was on the HSI website which stated: “Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States are working with other animal welfare and humanitarian organizations to determine how best to assist animals and people affected by the disaster. We have offered our support in providing care to affected animals. We will post updates as they become available.”
This week we purrrrrr for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Purr for their rescue, purr for their relief. Purr for their restoration….Particularly those overlooked victims: the animals.
