It's been a long time since I've posted anything on this or any other blog. Today I got an opportunity to write a post that will help animal shelters, so in memory of my dog, Parker (pictured), I decided it was time to break my silence and write about SPCA car donation.
Somebody, somewhere has probably come up with a statistic for the percentage of horse people who also own dogs. Based on the horse people I know, it's probably close to 100 percent, with many people owning more than one dog. You probably also care about animal shelters and would like to help out (Parker was a stray but our cats both came from the city animal shelter). You can help through car donation.
You can donate a car you don't want to the SPCA and get a tax deduction. The car doesn't even have to be running. It's easy to donate online or by making a phone call. They'll pick it up for free, usually in 24-hours, and then sell it at the highest possible price. The money they get for your car will go to help provide medical services and care for unwanted animals now crowding local and national shelters.
If you're like me, you'd like to adopt them all. I can't even watch the ads on TV. Heartbreaking. Your old car can help them. Seems strange, doesn't it? Donate something you don't want and give a second chance to pets. The name of the project is Cars Helping Pets.
This photo of Parker was taken by my daughter, Lily, on her last walk with him a couple of weeks ago, just a few days before he died. He had a good long life.
