Fairy Dogparents

Here’s a little feel-good story to start off the new year.

Economic times are rough, and animal welfare experts will tell you that when money grows short, the family pet is often abandoned or given to a shelter because its owners have to make a choice between feeding the pet and feeding themselves. At the same time, animal lovers know the difference a pet can make in life of someone who is lonely or struggling with hardship.

Enter Fairy Dogparents.  The brainchild of Marlo Manning, Fairy Dogparents is a non-profit organization  that provides food and vet care for dogs whose owners are facing difficult financial times so they are not forced to give up their pet.  The charity operates in Massachusetts, and is fairly new.

For the full story, watch this “Making a Difference” segment with Brian Williams of NBC.
