Just as with the recent earthquake in China and the cyclone in Myanmar, and putting people aside for just a moment, thousands of animals are in dire need of assistance. Needless to say, disasters of this magnitude put a huge drain on the resources of animal rescue organizations, so if you can afford it (and I know things are tough economically these days), you might want to consider a donation to the organization of your choice. Links to several excellent animal rescue organizations may be found on the "links" page of my website.
And one last thing... if there are any humans out there who STILL think global warming is a hoax or a non-issue, please contact me immediately. I have some acreage on the moon I'd like to sell you!
