Some nice words about this appeal in a piece in today's San Francisco Chronicle:

Help Dr. Becker help shelter pets this holiday season

This year on Christmas Day, my co-workers from Lakewood Animal Hospital in Coeur d'Alene and North Idaho Animal Hospital in Sandpoint will  visit local shelters in those towns and my own hometown of Bonners Ferry, bringing gifts to all the dogs and cats, including toys generously donated by The Kong Company.

Will you be a part of helping homeless pets in your hometowns, too?

Each dog and cat in your local shelter may have been the beloved pet of a family who lost their home or income in the current economic hard times, or a stray who has never known a loving touch.

There are so many ways you can help these pets, from volunteering to walk a dog or play with a cat, to donating blankets, beds, food, treats, catnip, toys or money — choose your own local shelter to support, or participate in one of these national campaigns:

You can search for pets in your area to adopt or foster, or shelters to visit, through these organizations:

You can even help keep pets from becoming homeless in the first place by supporting these great programs that provide food and supplies to the pets of people struggling to make ends meet:

Your kindness can make all the difference in the world for pets in need, whether it brightens the day of a dog or cat with no home, or helps keep a family pet from losing the home she has.

Will you post a promise below to do something for these wonderful pets who have so little? Share your pledge with me here or on Facebook. Let me know when you’ve fulfilled the pledge. Post stories, photos, links and tips for other pet lovers who want to help.

I’ll collect the stories and share them in my free e-mail newsletter and on PetConnection.com, so we can all find out how people are helping the homeless and needy pets in their communities – you can subscribe here for FREE!  so you don’t miss it.

I thank you in advance for helping us make these precious pets lives a little bit better.
