Nov. 2-8 marks the celebration of National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, and event sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States in recognition of the indispensable role animal shelters play in maintaining the safety and health of a community for all of its residents.

Whether it's controlling a dog roaming at large, rescuing an injured cat or bringing a lost animal home, the professionals at local animal shelters work hard to help both the two- and four-legged members of our communities.

Not all animal shelters can provide quality services due to lack of funding, resources or community support. If your local animal shelter needs a helping hand in caring for your community's unwanted and stray animals, get involved.

An animal shelter is only as good as a community makes it. The HSUS encourages everyone to support his local animal shelter not only during National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, but all year long. These efforts will help animals in local communities and across the nation.
