May is 31 Days of Compassion at Animal Friends

May 01, 2017 08:23AM ● Published by North Hills Monthly magazine

At Animal Friends, every day is full of compassion. Through our progressive pet-focused programming we’re changing and improving the lives of the people and pets in our region each and every day.

So for the 31 days of May, turn your compassion into action. Even one day of compassion can mean a life saved, an ailing body healed and a pet rescued. It’s all about working together with compassion and hope.

There are so many ways to join Animal Friends this month. Whether you adopt, volunteer, donate or attend one of the many fun events at Animal Friends or throughout the community, we can’t wait to meet you!

31 Days of Compassion Adoption Event
All May long at Animal Friends

During each week in May, we’ll be featuring an adoptable dog, cat or rabbit in need of a loving home. Adopt one of our featured pets during their week and we’ll send you home with a special gift to help your newest family member feel right at home! Visit ThinkingOutsideTheCage.org/Adopt or contact our adoptions team to learn more.
