If you live in the greater Los Angeles area and love animals then you need to volunteer for NKLA and Best Friends. This is one of the best, if not THE best, animal rescue groups I have ever worked with.
One of the volunteer options that I especially love is bottle-feeding the kittens in the neonate nursery. Best Friends & NKLA pull these babies from the kill shelters and bottle feed them until they are old enough to eat on their own. Every two hours, volunteers bottle feed kittens, burp them, stimulate them to go to the bathroom (!!!) and weigh them. It’s so much fun and so cute that my head caves in every single time.
We are always looking for volunteers. If you’re interested, learn more on the NKLA website and pass it on!
Oh PS - all cats and kittens are only $9 to adopt during the month of June through Best Friends!
Black Friday has come and gone (um, can we even call it Black Friday anymore when it started on Thursday night this year?) and Cyber Monday hit record sales. But I don’t buy into the discounted refurbished items.
My favorite day of the season is Giving Tuesday! It’s the day when organizations ask everyone to look into their hearts and give to a charity that means something to them. For me, it’s always been about animals.
It’s been exactly two weeks since I lost Olivia Mewton John to a fire. Though the house and everything in it is completely gone, the material loss is recoverable but the pets are not. Though she was only five years old, to me she was still a baby but I’m grateful for the short time that I’ve had with her.
This year for Giving Tuesday, I will be donating to Animal Care & Control of New York City’s 2013 Holiday Fund Drive. I adopted Olivia through AC&C as well as volunteered at the shelter so this will be very bittersweet for me.
For anyone who loves animals, wants to donate, or just wants to learn more about AC&C of New York City, just click here for the link.
Don’t forget to hug your pets today! Happy Holiday Season everyone!!
My brain is so fried right now. I needed this.
