Kung Hei Fat Choi!
This Lunar New Year, we are taking a different approach to our holiday guide.
Our inboxes are filled with offers of special CNY gift offers and ways to share our Valentine’s Day love with dinner dates, chocolates and champagne.
To celebrate unconditional love, this special feature is published in honor of our many local volunteers who devote their precious time and resources to protect and care for those who cannot speak for themselves.
Our community is home to unsung local heroes whose passion is standing up for beautiful creatures whose humans have failed them. These people make monumental sacrifices and I would rather they not spend their time and resources on advertising so I am spending my time and resources to invite you to support them.
From rescuing and homing to raising awareness and protecting their home — an environment that also happens to be our own — these organizations can always use a little help. Most are active on social media with current campaigns to let us know the specifics of what they are looking for. Sometimes it’s volunteer time, sometimes it is specific expertise, sometimes it is specific donations of equipment or supplies … and they can always use a little extra cash to pay cover expenses that often come out of their own pockets.
The simple beauty of giving to animals is the love received in return.
How will you share your love in the year of monkey business?
