National Shelter Week is Almost Here!

November 4-10, 2007 is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week; Shelters Rock! Nationwide Celebration Recognizing Shelters for Protecting Animals and Serving Communities

WHAT: National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week 2007
For the 11th year, The Humane Society of the United States celebrates National Animal Shelter Appreciation (NASA) Week in honor of shelters and their dedicated staff across the country, who serve an invaluable but often underappreciated role in America’s communities.

WHY:Animal shelters are a vital resource in their communities. A shelter is a safe haven for animals, a great place to adopt a new family pet, and many also provide emergency animal services, important resources for pet owners, and community education on humane issues.

WHEN:November 4-10, 2007 (the first full week of every November)

WHERE:National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week is celebrated coast to coast -- contact local animal control and sheltering organizations to find out what events might be planned, and what individuals can do to show support.
