Sunbear Squad Has Partnered with People Saving PetsTM

Posted on March 25th, 2011 by Trish Roman-Aquilino

Petsmart Charities, Inc. has launched a new movement that incorporates and empowers the animal-loving public in the fight against homelessness and euthanasia of companion animals.  The inaugural cities for the People Saving Pets movement are Phoenix, AZ and Oklahoma City, OK. Needless to say, Sunbear Squad jumped at the opportunity to partner with this effort that dovetails so well with our mission – to educate and empower everyday citizens with the tools and inspiration they need to be Good Samaritans for the companion animals in their own neighborhoods and communities. Sunbear Squad offers free tools such as an on-line neglect and abuse tutorial, Roadside Rescue Kit, Wallet Card, Pocket Posters in 2 languages, free ad materials, and disaster plans for pets, and provides inspiration with amazing true-life animal rescue stories, inspirational sayings, and an Animal Bill of Rights.

Like Sunbear Squad, People Saving Pets strives to inspire the public to take action in their communities, by educating and providing information to increase adoptions, spay and neuters and to encourage more people to volunteer for animal welfare organizations.

We encourage Sunbear Squad readers and members to learn about this program and join the movement.  While People Saving Pets is just getting started in two cities, this will be a nationwide program, coming to a city near you, very soon! Getting involved is easy and a few simple actions can make a big difference for our pets.
