HENRY’S CAMPAIGN IS ALL ABOUT THE ISSUES FACING ANIMALS IN NEED.
Join Henry along with the Animal Care League in supporting equal rights for all dogs, cats, rabbits and small animals in need.
All campaign donations go directly to the Animal Care League. Learn more about the issues facing animals in need and how you can help below.
Millions of animals find themselves entering animal shelters across the country each year, most to no fault of their own. In 2015, the Animal Care League alone took in over 1200 animals. Life changing situations such as eviction, divorce or a new baby can cause a family pet to be given away. Many animals also lose their way and are unable to find their way back home without proper identification or knowledge on the owner’s part as to where to look. Adopting an animal provides a second chance to an animal in need. Shelter pets come in all types of breeds, ages, sizes and energy levels. Doing research ahead of time can give an idea of what is the best for you before visiting the shelter. The Animal Care League has great dogs, cats, rabbits and other small animals available for adoption. All available animals are posted on the Animal Care League Website at animalcareleague.org.
Want to make a difference in the life of shelter animals? Volunteer! Volunteering is a great way to get involved and make a difference. Animal Care League is always looking for volunteers to help in the areas of dog walking, cat and small animal socialization, office help, laundry and dishes, adoption events, fundraising, and more! Whether you have only a couple hours per week or a lot of extra time, there is a volunteer opportunity to fit your schedule. Start the process by signing up for a New Volunteer Orientation at the Animal Care League. animalcareleague.org/volunteer.html.
Spay | Neuter Overpopulation
According to the ASPCA over 70,000 animals are born each year and over 2.7 Million animals are euthanized in shelters each year due to overpopulation and overcrowding. An unspayed female, her mate and their offspring can produce 367 cats in just 3 years. The key to ensuring that unwanted animals will not be born is through spay/neuter. Sterilizing your pet not only helps prevent overpopulation but also has many health benefits. Animal Care League offers spay and neuter services at low cost to the general public. Appointments can be made by calling 708-848-8155 x123. For more information, visit animalcareleague.org.
Annual vaccines are an important part of preventing pets from becoming ill. Rabies vaccines are also required by law for animals over the age of 4 months, and in some areas are also required for proper licensing. Animal Care League offers low -cost vaccines, microchipping, and heartworm/combo testing for spayed or neutered animals through the Chatka Ruggiero Spay/Neuter Clinic. You can receive more information by visiting animalcareleague.org or call 708-848-8155 x123 to make an appointment.
