I love this cause!
Today is Adopt the Internet Day, an event organized by Petfinder.com to spread the word about the importance of adopting companion animals from shelters and rescue groups. This is a mission we also champion at The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), especially through the Shelter Pet Project. We’re sharing the message of shelter pet adoption nationwide through TV, radio, print, outdoor, and online advertisements.
Please join The HSUS in promoting pet adoption today through one or more of the following:
If you’ve adopted a pet, send The HSUS a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a few sentences about where you adopted your pet and what he or she means to you. They’ll post a slideshow of selected photos on their blog, A Humane Nation, http://hsus.typepad.com/.
“Like” the Shelter Pet Project on Facebook and donate your Facebook or Twitter status to pet adoption.
Sign The HSUS pledge to adopt your next companion animal.
Visit Petfinder’s Adopt the Internet Day page.

LOCAL LAS VEGANS:
As most of you know, I'm fostering Chrissy, a loving and sweet Chihuahua/terrier mix through the Las Vegas Valley Humane Society (LVVHS). They are always in need of more caring foster homes.
If you'd like to do something to give back and help better the life of a homeless pet, give them a call at (702) 434-2009 or visit their site at http://www.lvvhumane.org/index.php
