Hope everyone celebrates Labor Day especially those who spend their lives helping those less fortunate! Here is a trbute all those who support animals and the amazing benefits they bless us with!
After rescuing Pasha, my Russian Blue, and my beloved Lucky the Maltese from a local NYC shelter, I felt compelled to start Animal Fair Media, the premier lifestyle media company advocating fairness to animals by promoting animal rescue and welfare. My animals provided unconditional love and loyalty, inspiring me to make a lifelong commitment to fight for disenfranchised animals across the globe.
When I launched my animal rescue mission in 1999, shelters across the country euthanized 12 million dogs and cats annually. Animal Fair Media and other amazing individuals and organizations raised public awareness of animal rescue, and dropped this number to 5 million this year. Animal welfare awareness is here to stay until this number is zero, and there are no more homeless pets!
By bringing animal rescue to forefront of public awareness, Animal Fair Media encourages responsibility amongst pet guardians worldwide. We have joined forces with politicians and media personalities such as Justin Bieber, Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Beyonce, and Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino, lending our voices to help silenced and vulnerable homeless pets.
Our chief philosophy is: act locally! When passionate individuals get involved in their local shelters and organizations, they become a ripple of change that radiates out to the world at large, producing substantial results.
Donating money to local shelters or organizations helps, but so does volunteering time and energy. Find a local organization that suits your lifestyle, and roll up your sleeves! You can do anything from volunteering at a shelter to fostering pets in your home for a short time. The most rewarding way to contribute is by adopting a pet – shelters carry both pedigrees and mutts, and enjoy puppy love!
Here are a few of our favorite organizations we have vetted to be wonderful :
You can train your dog to comfort sick children and the elderly in your community as a therapy dog. One million people a year are positively impacted by the companionship of therapy animals (petpartners.org).
The Humane Society of New York (home to the Lucky Diamond critical care ward) has cared for NYC’s needy animals for over 100 years. You can volunteer at their shelter or give a rescued animal a forever home (humanesocietyny.org).
