This weekend is the May pawpawty, and this month's theme is Super Heroes. Join the anipals as we save the world and make it better for mankind - and animals too!
This month, we will be supporting Young at Heart Pet Rescue, located in the Chicagoland area. Founded in 2005, Young at Heart rescues and rehomes older dogs and cats - all of which were saved from open-admission shelters that have high kill rates for older pets.
Young at Heart is a volunteer-based organization with all dogs housed in foster homes and cats housed in a cageless adoption area. They receive no federal or state funding, and they rely solely on individual donations, fundraisers and grants to support their mission.
Pawpawty starts on Saturday, May 21 at 2p.m. EDT, and it runs for a full 24 hours so everyone can participate. As always, there will be lots of music, fun, games and prizes. So grab your tights - we'll see you there! You can RSVP using twtvite.
