Animal Rights

Here are stories and information on some of the wonderful animal welfare organizations.  Here you will find updated information about clinics, how to adopt an animal, and how you personally can help. We feel so strongly about this that each month, in our newsletter, we have a Pet of the Month that is up for adoption.
