The Dog Days of Summer: Animal-Welfare Organizations


Nonprofits dedicated to protecting animals engage in a broad range of activities. Some focus on spaying and neutering feral cats. Others provide homes for miniature pigs that have outgrown their house-pet status. Still others work to preserve exotic and endangered species or to rescue dogs from shelters and train them to assist people with disabilities.
