If you are an animal lover, like me, you've no doubt wondered who is helping the animals of Haiti who are surely as -- if not more-- scared and shaken and destitute as any human being there, following the devastating earthquake.
So I was thrilled to learn that they have a savior: the Animal Relief Coalition for Haiti, or ARCH, set up by groups including the Best Friends Animal Society, The Humane Society of the United States and the ASPCA, is working on the ground to bring relief to the animals in the form of veterinary and food aid. They need your help, either in cash or -- if you can do it-- as on-the-ground volunteers.
Visit this link for more information. You can donate either by credit card or through your cell phone. According to the Best Friends Animal Society, ARCH will also focus on creating a long-term plan that includes options for veterinary care, a large-scale vaccination program and services for animal population control. And 100 percent of your donation goes to help the animals-- so what's your excuse?
