Spread some love to the furry friends at S.P.C.A. or Animal Lovers League! These organizations could do with more hands and love. Do take note that this is no easy task as it requires a whole lot of commitment, hard work, love, and passion for caring for animals.

As an animal lover, this cause is close to my heart as it pains me to hear about cases of helpless or abandoned animals. These furry little ones have feelings just like us, but they don’t always get the support that they need.
