The Animal Rescue Site...

Where a Simple Click will Feed an Animal

So often we’re sympathetic to animals in need, but don’t really know what we can do to help. The Animal Rescue site has solved that and made it very easy for all of us to “click in” and help out. In fact, by just clicking on the “Feed an Animal in Need” button, you provide a bowl of food for an animal at either the North Shore Animal League, the Fund for Animals’ animal sanctuaries, or the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center compliments of the site’s sponsors. Pretty great idea, huh?

The North Shore Animal League is the world’s largest adoption center and places thousands of dogs and cats in new homes every year. The Fund for Animals is an animal advocacy organization and also operates facilities, which include the 1,400 acre Black Beauty Ranch sanctuary that rescues wild burros of the Grand Canyon and wild horses of the American West. They also have the world’s leading medical centers for native wildlife such as coyotes, bobcats, and raptors.

This site does have a monitoring system that only allows one click a day per person, so if you’re feeling enthusiastic, just go to: “Gear that Gives” in the site. If you buy something, Gear that Gives will sponsor 15 bowls of food for each item. Shopping in the Animal Rescue Site shopping village will also provide more funding for food.

The Animal Rescue Site was launched in July 2002 to provide food for some of the 27 million unwanted animals in this country and is owned by long-time environmental activists, Tim Kunin and Greg Hesterberg. Other “click to give” projects they own are: The Hunger Site, The Breast Cancer Site, The Rainforest Site, and Ecology Fund.

I personally think it’s a brilliant idea and a great way for all of us to pitch in and help out! Remember clicking costs you nothing! So go ahead and take a few seconds to feed an animal…
