The busy holiday season, the time when folks are making their lists, making plans to spend time with loved ones, and wrapping up the past year to jump into the new year. The holiday season is the perfect time to make room on your list for animal welfare organizations in need. A thoughtful way for pet lovers to show their love and concern for their furry friends is by making their annual contributions toward animal welfare causes. Or, because animal welfare charities need your help not just during the holiday season, but all year long, consider scheduling monthly donations toward your favorite cause.
