Tell us about your special bond with an animal

Almost every day, someone tells me a story about their special connection with animals. I always love to hear these stories.The start of a new year is a time to look back and look ahead.

Looking back, I want to thank you for all the ways you’ve been a friend to animals.

In 2014, we rescued abandoned dogs in Ukraine, gave hands-on care to orphaned elephants and brought about new policies that will protect seals and whales.  In so many parts of the globe, we were able to protect and care for helpless animals because of your support.

Looking ahead, we will continue many projects, like raising orphaned elephants, rescuing animals after natural disasters and protecting wildlife from poachers.

Almost every day, someone tells me a story about their special connection with animals. I always love to hear these stories.

I would like to invite you to tell me about your special bond with an animal. Maybe it’s a beloved cat or dog. Maybe it’s a wild animal that you saw near where you live or while away on vacation.

Please take a moment to tell me about that special bond in the comments section below.

I look forward to reading what you have to say. Thank you for your time and thoughts.

Wishing you a happy and healthy new year!
