The Humane Society of the United States, the nation’s largest animal protection organization, wants to remind pet media that next week is National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week, and encourages you to help us get the word out to the pet-loving public to support their local shelters and rescues. Next week, you'll receive a the full press release for the event, but here's an abbreviated version that should provide enough information for early coverage.
