If you love animals and/or want to help the masses in need, there are many and even a few fairly painless ways. Some sites to visit ..
www.theanimalrescuesite.com -- Here, when you click you send a portion of food and 100% of the donation goes to the animals. This is only 1 facet of this site dedicated to helping animals.
www.booboozoo.org - This is an amazing story, from its inception to now, 30 years later. The woman who helped start this rescue was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Helping animals helped her channel her desire to live into another realm, and she survived a death sentence.
www.goodsearch.com - Allows you to choose the cause (animal or otherwise) and when you use this search engine, good things happen! While working 6-7 days a week, I use a search engine easily a dozen or more times a day - works for me most of the time.
www.rollingdogranch.org - A neat rescue in Montana doing amazing things with animals who had no other hope.
www.longmeadowrescueranch.org - A place primarily for horses and other barn animals.
www.assateaguewildhorses.org - I live on the Eastern Shore and virtually everyone visits the ponies at least once. These horses have survived on the island for over 300 years but now human intervention is necessary to keep the herd healthy.
