This week's Be the Change for Animals cause is ForeclosurePets.org. Their mission is to provide U.S. homeowners facing foreclosure assistance in finding a new home and/or temporary adoption for their pets until they can get back on their feet.
Currently there are over 1.6 million foreclosures, and with the current economy, there will be more in the near future. Sadly, pets are being left behind to fend for themselves, and in many cases, this results in starvation and death. These animals cannot survive on their own and simply do not deserve this treatment.
The goal of ForeclosurePets.org is to provide a free service where homeowners can establish an account to post their pet’s information, including photos, description, and contact information in order to find them a temporary home or a new family. Rescue groups, non-profits and even agents can also post animals they have or may find in foreclosure homes on this site.
Here's how you can help: 1) If someone you know is in danger of losing their home, please have them visit ForeclosurePets.org to give their pet a chance to find a loving home. 2) Become a fan on facebook. 3) Spread the word about this invaluable resource. You may save an animal’s life!
