The Humane Society of the United States and its puppet groups NC Voters for Animal Welfare and Susie’s Law really, really want you to take cupcakes to your local pound for the holidays. Their “NC Shelter Project” is promoting a “12 Acts of Kindness” program for the month of December. The first item on the list sent out by HSUS NC director Kim Alboum is “Bring a gift of snacks to shelter staff cookies, cupcakes, chocolate, pizza, coffee, etc.” Because killing animals is so much more pleasant when there’s an array of goodies laid out on top of the gas chamber!
Other suggestions include:
- Run an errand for a shelter staff member.
- Write a positive letter to the editor about the shelter.
- Highlight a shelter staff member on your Facebook page and ask your friends to share it.
- Purchase a holiday card for the shelter and have all the members of your rescue sign it with a personal message to staff.
Be sure to take a photo of your cupcakes and post it to the NC Shelter project Facebook page!
