Celebrating #GivingTuesday

Humane Talk (11-28-2016) #8068: Celebrating #GivingTuesday — the ultimate antidote to the rampant consumerism of Black Friday. Kim Alboum — director of the Emergency Placement Partners program for the Humane Society of the United States — thanks Halo for giving a bowl of food for every $1 donated to the HSUS on this day. She and Tracie discuss how important it is –– beyond donations to HSUS — to bring a stop to the squabbling in the rescue community and give respect and kindness to the shelter workers, who are the first line of defense, sheltering animals so that their journey to a forever home can begin. Donations can also be done on Facebook: facebook.com/donate/10154201036482842/
