Animal Planet is teaming up with a wide variety of national level animal welfare organizations in an effort to help make the world a better place for animals in our communities and in the wild.
Some of the organizations include the WWF, Petfinder.com, ASPCA, Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and more.
The program, entitled R.O.A.R (which stands for Reach Out, Act and Respond) features a wide variety of programs including the Promise Pledge. When you take the Promise Pledge, you commit to and promote the ways in which you will be helping animals, through adoption, volunteering, raising awareness, or through donations. You can also add your info and commitment to the Promise map, and network with others in your area who are committing to your similar cause.
The site also has great info on how you can help animals, learn more about the issues facing them, and ways you can get involved and share information, ideas on fundraising and how kids and parents can work together to help animals in need.
