I encourage everyone that is able to volunteer time, donate items/funds, consider fostering, or adopt a pet from one of our wonderful local animal rescue groups this holiday season. There are a wide variety of pure and mix-breed loving animals looking for a home. Pet items that are slightly used can find new life in the hands of several local animal rescue organizations. Some facilities can benefit from donations of food. Many facilities are looking for people to walk dogs, socialize pets, groom them, clean equipment, etc.
The Animal Protection League takes animals directly out of our local animal shelter in Stockton, spays and neuters them, and finds them homes. If not for this group’s tireless efforts, these dogs and cats would be euthanized. I personally volunteer with this organization doing spay/neuter surgeries on the weekend. They take animals to various locations for adoptions, and also have a facility located at 7602 Murray Drive, Suite 106 Stockton CA. Check out their website www.apl209.org or follow them on Facebook.
