Etsy For Animals - July Charity of the Month

The EFA July Charity of the Month is: Dogs for the Deaf

"In 30 years, DFD has rescued and placed over 3,000 dogs in homes as Hearing Dogs, Miracle Mutts (Special Dogs for Special People), and Career Change Dogs.

DFD rescues dogs from animal shelters throughout Oregon, Washington, and California. We choose dogs between the ages of eight months and three years that are people friendly, confident, and motivated by toys, treats, and affection. We rescue, train, and place over 100 dogs annually."

The International Charity of the Month is: Vancouver Aquarium's Marine Mammal Rescue Program

"The primary goal of the Marine Mammel Rescue and Rehabilitaion Program is to provide housing and care for ill, injured, or abandoned marine animals and to rehabilitate them for release back into their natural habitat."

EFA members donated over $1,217.21 to June's Charity of the Month Angel's Gate and other and other chairities of their choice.
