Video: How You Can Adopt Them All

Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 4:15pm

Every day we post photos of cats and dogs on our blog who are looking for good homes. Like most of our readers, we wish we could bring every single one of these deserving pets home. (Sigh.) The great news is there is a much better alternative.

It’s easy. By becoming a monthly supporter of the ASPCA and helping us find homes for every animal that passes through our door, you can make a real difference.

As an ASPCA supporter, you make a real impact by providing ongoing comfort to animals in need. Even if you can't adopt one more pet, help make sure that, in time, we will find a loving family for every single homeless animal.

Watch this heartwarming video of just a few of the quirky pets in our shelter who will find homes thanks to the support of members like you.

This holiday season, do the next best thing for homeless animals by making a gift to the ASPCA. And spread the word to your friends with the hashtag #AdoptThemAll.

This is not the solution for all of us who are trying their damnest to care for the strays in their own area. I called ASPCA numerous times for help and all I got was a recorded message! There are a lot of us out there trying to TNR and feed colonies of strays or ferals. So how does that help us by giving money which we have earmarked to skeep our own animals alive? Your society has never taken a no-kill-stance .and I know beyond a reasonable doubt that you kill existing cats and dogs especially if newbies arrive in the shelter. We are trying to sustain the animals in our area even after taking in a number of them, on a limited income,! So what is MY benefit to both paying for food, vet bills and shelter. I am so PO at your society especially when I learned how much actually goes into suustaining an animal vs the administration cost.

MONICA, SAD TO SAY, I HAD KIND OF SAME PROBLEM, WHEN AFTER BACK SURGERY I NEEDED HELP TO GET KITTY FROM UNDER THE HOOD. NOBODY AROUND, HUMANE SOCIETY WOULD NOT HELP ME AND THEY WERE RESCUING KITTY FROM UNDER THE CAR COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO ON THEIR TV PROGRAM. SO, ABVIOUSLY, MY PROBLEM WAS-NO TV CREW, NO HELP. AND I AM A DONOR.

There is a huge divide between what people think humane societies/animal control agencies (municipal and private, low and no kill, open admission and “always full”) do. Charities play to benefactors while the public cannot get even a helpful phone call conversation and information from them. Mother Theresa said, "Don't wait for leaders to do it. Do it alone, person to person." Multi-multi-multi organizations see more benefit to cute videos and brochures than taking calls about animals in need. I'm with a small cat rescue org. I forward calls to my cell and call callers back as soon as I can – often if possible while they are still leaving a message. An animal’s life might depend on it – so why not expend five minutes that might make all the difference. I wish I could accept all the animals, but I can and do offer support and information to help them do the right, best thing for animals about which they call. And I make small investments. An elderly gent fed cats who annoyed the neighbors in his trailer park. We got the cats fixed thru a rescue colleague (I paid $450 or so to fix 8 cats), and then I sent him two devices that emit an inaudible to human sound which deter cats. I think the name is Cat Scat, and I'm going into too much detail. Couldn't the huge budgeted charities do similarly? Cats don't eat or read brochures. Form your own 501(c)(3) org or work with a small one who helps callers and people with animal problems. Call around and see if you are treated well before donating or volunteering with animal charities.
