Expressions of sympathy for Albi
If you would like to make a donation to honor Albi, please make it to any or all of the following:
Your local animal shelter or animal rescue group. They are always desperate for cash, to pay for food, beds, medicine, staff time, utilities (lights, heat), their Internet access (SO important in this day and age), office materials and on-and-on. Donations of things are great, but please call them first and ASK if they need whatever item it is you want to donate.
Mayhew International, which supports nonprofits all over the world, including Afghanistan, Romania, Russia and India, regarding spay and neuter programs and programs to help build compassion and responsible pet ownership skills among local communities, particularly children. I found out about them when I lived in Kabul. They are wonderful. They are based in the U.K. You can make your gift ear-marked for a certain country or program, if you like.
Nowzad Dogs. This is a nonprofit shelter in Kabul, Afghanistan, supported in part by Mayhew. Compassion for animals breeds compassion for everyone. Helping this shelter and its animals IS helping people, and it's very much needed in Afghanistan.
