Donate to a dog shelter

Women Like Sports was the winner of my February comment contest. Apryl DeLancey got to choose the animal shelter or rescue where That Mutt will make a donation.

Apryl chose the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Los Angeles and volunteered to match my $20 donation.

“Readers from all over can feel good about donating to this particular shelter that services the Los Angeles area since we have such a large population of animals that are ‘feral,’ ‘strays’ or even abandoned,” Apryl said.

If you would like to give to the spcaLA, you may donate online. You may also mail a check to:

5026 W Jefferson Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90016

The spcaLA is dedicated to preventing cruelty to animals through education, law enforcement and intervention, according to its web site. The group is a nonprofit and donations run its programs and services such as cruelty investigation, shelters, disaster response and education.

The spcaLA and other organizations like it depend on our donations. I encourage you to make a $20 donation to either the spcaLA or your local animal rescue or shelter.

My orange cat Beamer came from our local humane society.

Thank you for bringing this charity to everyone's attention, Lindsay! They really have their hands full in this huge metropolitan area and need all the help they can get.

Hadn't planned on it for March, but I will have to do something similar in the future.
