Dedicate some charitable dollars to animals | Letter

In the past, at about this time of the year, I have submitted a letter about being careful to verify the legitimacy of those organizations asking for your charitable dollars. This year, I’d like to make a plea on behalf of the animal charities specifically. You may already have your charitable dollars planned. But if you have a few dollars for our four-legged friends, here is a list of organizations we’ve found to be worthy. (And yes, there are plenty more out there.) I’ve researched these, and they do what they say. They can each be found by name on the internet and through the Charity Navigator website, charitynavigator.com. Can you pick one and give a little? Thanks.
