Pledge to give back to the pet in your life!

The Animal Rescue League of Boston has joined with #GivingTuesday, a first of its kind effort that will harness the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday will inspire people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. Taking place November 27,2012 – the Tuesday after Thanksgiving – #GivingTuesday will create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping.

Animals share their unconditional love with us every day. Will you show how much you appreciate them on Giving Tuesday?

The League is asking that you give back to animals in one of two ways this holiday season:

1) Take a pledge to spend 10 extra minutes with your pet each day starting on Nov 27. This may mean waking up 10 minutes early and playing with your cat before leaving for work, extending your dog’s walk by 10 minutes, or letting your rabbit out of his hutch for 10 minutes more than usual. Tweet us your pledge today! twitter.com/arlboston

2) Donate to help animals that are less fortunate this holiday season. You can do this by purchasing an ornament for your pet for our Holiday Tree or by giving directly to the League at www.arlboston.org/donate

We hope that you’ll take a moment this holiday season to give to animals. When you’re out doing your holiday shopping on Black Friday try to remember to set a few dollars aside for animals in need. To learn about the League’s participation in Giving Tuesday click here.
