Spreading Peace to Street Dogs Everywhere (title as originally emailed)
Emailed to me from Humane Society International;
Will you help this street dog mother — and others like her around the world?
Be an HSI Street Dog Defender.
December 14, 2010
Imagine living on the edge, never having quite enough to eat and many hungry mouths counting on you for nourishment. With young ones so dependent, you struggle to fend off starvation and disease and fight to keep you and your family safe.
Sadly, that’s everyday life for a street dog mother — desperately trying to provide for her puppies, while barely able to care for herself. It’s an endless cycle of misery and suffering.
That’s why Humane Society International is aggressively working in developing countries around the world to end this merciless cycle through spay/neuter programs and vaccinations against deadly diseases. This holiday season, will you help them with a monthly donation of $15 and become an HSI Street Dog Defender?
Together, we can bring about powerful change to street dog communities, preventing a life of suffering for tens of thousands of dogs. And life for spayed and neutered dogs provides much needed peace: Fighting among the pack goes down, the female members no longer give birth to litter after litter of puppies for whom they can barely provide.
But we need your help! As of today, we’ve recruited 465 Street Dog Defenders, with a goal of 750 by Dec. 31, 2010. It’s ambitious — but so are our plans to help street dogs around the world. From Bhutan to India, the Philippines to Haiti, with your donation of $15 a month — just 50 cents a day — you’ll help our teams on the ground curb overpopulation through spay/neuter, stop the spread of the deadly rabies virus to protect animals and humans, provide veterinary training, and educate communities to help change attitudes and behavior toward these vulnerable animals.
Please, become a Street Dog Defender today, and help us provide the most effective tools to help these animals and the communities in which they live.
Thank you so much for all you do for animals.
