Red Slice believes strongly in giving back. After a near-death experience in 2008, this calling to make the world a better place has never been stronger for me. There are so many ways that we can make a difference.
I proudly support the following organizations in any way I can, and I encourage you to do the same. Even $1 can make a difference if that is all you have – or better yet donate your time and talent. A big part of my mission is to improve the lives of animals through better sheltering, more adoption, responsible pet ownership and just giving them as much love in their short lives as they give us humans! As mom of the rescued, Eddie the Wonder Dog, I know first-hand how much joy these pets can bring, especially in times of need.
