Every month I feature a way to give back by sharing things I’ve found meaningful to champion. For March 2015 I chose helping good people help dogs. I love dogs so much! I can’t imagine my life (or a lot of my books) without them. But for every dog in a happy home, there are so many more who are still searching for one. Send a cheeseburger Hope For Paws’ direction and start getting great dogs into great forever families!
Audrey and Eldad Hagar have been fostering hundreds of animals in their home for the past eight years. They created Hope for Paws to help animals in this country who suffer and die every year because of negligence and abuse. They also created a huge network of rescuers from all over the world on their Facebook pages.
Our fostered animals are a part of our family and are treated as such. Too often, people undervalue their furry family members and abandon them in their backyards, on the streets or at the shelters. These animals die from starvation, abuse, and euthanization because of the overcrowding at the shelters.
Pets are not items that can be thrown away or exchanged for younger models. Animals are sentient beings who feel pain, love, joy, mourning, and loss. These valuable creatures help us whether it is assisting the blind or finding people under the rubble from an earthquake. They help us in times of war and during human catastrophes.
We want to help both humans and animals alike live harmonious and fulfilling lives together.

Happy giving, in whatever way you choose to better your world!
