 Pet Smart Charities is the fuel for the People Saving Pets movement. Pet Smart charity is the largest foundation of animal welfare in the United States! Every year four million animals that are put in shelters are euthanized. Euthanized means to put an animal down in a humane way. Although an animal dies in a “humane� way the procedure does not excuse the fact that an animal has just passed. Out of eight million animals in shelters that makes up one HALF of the overall result! This percentage needs to be decreased immediately. People Saving Pets movement is dedicated to finding pets a home where they can live a healthy life and be saved from being euthanized. Now how was I inspired to participate in this movement? My friend had worked for Pet Smart Charities through an organization called Lifeline Rescue. The organization is located in Pet Smart and holds adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, also every other Friday. She said that the org anization needed help that certain weekend because they were low on volunteers. I could not have been more excited to help out! There I learned how to sanitize the cages of the animals, how to take care of them, and how to help a family adopt one of these precious creatures! I loved working with these incredible animals and I will continue to spread the word throughout my community about this organization! I am determined to create fliers and hold fundraisers, because money for the sheltered animals for shots and being properly spayed or neutered unfortunately does not grow on trees! I will continue to spread the awareness throughout my community because these rates cannot remain at fifty percent; my dream is to make them decrease to zero.
