Red Cross: No Animals/No Money

I'm forwarding a message that the Red Cross really should get. Please consider doing this. Obviously, you can state this any way you want, but they need to know that they need to change their ways.

If you don't want to wait for an appeal, and would like to contact them, here's the info:
American Red Cross National Headquarters
2025 E Street, NW
Washington, DC 20006
Phone: (202) 303-4498

Thanks! Anna

Dear Friends of Animals:

The Red Cross has launched its latest hard-mail fund raising campaign. This year, on the heels of Hurricane Katrina, animal lovers everywhere are outraged over the Red Cross's inhumane 'no-animals' policy. Because of this policy, countless animals were abandoned and countless animals died. Equally sad is the heartbreak suffered by the devastated families forced to leave their animals behind.

This year, when you receive your donation request from the Red Cross, return the envelope with a MESSAGE and NO MONEY.

A possible message might be:

"I can no longer support the Red Cross. Because of the Red Cross's heartless 'no animals' policy and unwillingness to coordinate and share resources with animal rescue organizations, people died in their homes to protect their animals. Countless animals died at home abandoned by their families. And millions of families are consumed by guilt having been forced to leave their animals behind.

I am part of a national campaign to change the Red Cross's inhumane 'no animals' policy. If the Red Cross wants my money, the Red Cross will have to change."

Please distribute widely and thank you for helping to make this change.

Linda
