If you donate, we thank you for your generosity. Please help us by expanding our circle of friends. Send us the name and address of a friend, relative, or co-worker, who would like to join with us in our never-ending struggle to make life better for the animals that come through our doors.
If you need any information on the Societies' efforts and goals, please feel free to call us, write to us, or send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are too many animals that need our help and we do not wish to disappoint them. So please continue to help us to help them.
