Cause of the Week: Animal Welfare

Pet Adoption; Wildlife Preservation; Endangered Species; Fisheries; Zoos; Aquariums; Animal Rescue; Animal Shelters; Ocean Cleanup  

Here in the United States, there are 1,300 estimated endangered species, and another 6 million animals in shelters waiting for their fur-ever home. These creatures, with whom we share the Earth, cannot speak for themselves, and so it is the mission of many CFC charities to speak on their behalf. Being good stewards of the animals in our care includes raising awareness for rescue efforts and supporting wildlife rehabilitation, which benefits the health of our planet, preserving it for generations to come.  

Those who have adopted beloved animals from shelters and rescue organizations can thank donors and volunteers for the veterinary support and other resources that help keep animals safe and healthy while they wait to find their families. Animal welfare organizations promote a hopeful future for our whole world, scaly, furry, feathered, and fin-covered species included.
